How QR Code Technology is Getting Better

QR or Quick Response code technology has really taken the digital world by storm, thanks to leaps in both apps and smart phone technology. Anyone with a smartphone can scan and read QR codes with the click of a camera, and anyone with access to a computer can generate QR codes themselves. In the entertainment world, the possibilities are astounding for print and poster advertising. Imagine being able to link people to digital program schedules, trailers, TV promos, podcasts, news and weather just by snapping a photo. Or imbedding QR codes around the city that link back to our radio station.

    interestingly the example image you used in your article is for the dvd release of 28 weeks later which is over 3 years old now…?

    surely there are more relevant campaigns you can use as your example… how about the excellent Iron Man 2 movie campaign –

      Hi Dean

      Thanks for letting me know how old the image is. We were looking for a generic image of a QR code – not a campaign image … but what the heck – thanks for the link, I’m going to go update the pic with the image you’ve suggested.
      Many thanks,
      ps I found your 60 second QR Codes for Dummies to be a really good resource – I urge anyone with an interest to click here
