A hybrid-type bi-optical bar code symbol reading system having a vertical housing section having a vertical scanning window and a horizontal housing section having a horizontal scanning window, from which laser scanning planes are projected and intersect within a 3D scanning volume defined between the vertical and horizontal scanning windows. A digital imaging module is supported within the vertical section of the system housing and automatically projects a field of view (FOV) within the 3D scanning volume when an object is detected in close proximity to the vertical scanning window of the system, providing an automatically-triggered digital imaging region in close proximity to the vertical scanning window.

Title
