Upcoming WhatTheyThink LunchNLearn Webinar—Beyond Print: Technologies for Augmenting Print Reality

Press release from the issuing company

Print is no longer a static, unconnected piece of paper. Whether it is using augmented reality (AR) to being a print catalog to life, a QR code to use print to launch a website or other electronic content, NFC-based InfoLnkX to offer touchless menus for restaurants, or Xanté’s Infomark to share electronic content via print, a printed document can be a seamlessly integrated part of the “Internet of Things” or a canvas on which rich media can be overlaid. The latest in WhatTheyThink’s LunchNLearn Webinar series will look at several examples of “interactive print.”

On Wednesday, August 26, at 1 p.m. ET, “Beyond Print: Technologies for Augmenting Print Reality”will feature a panel discussion looking at these technologies. WhatTheyThink managing editor Richard Romano will be joined by:

  • Adam Koppelman, SpeedPro Services Group, Totowa, N.J.
  • Frédéric Guarino, ARGO
  • Robert Ross, Xanté

This dynamic panel discussion will look at different technologies for making print interactive, including:

  • SpeedPro’s Near Field Communication-based InfoLnkX
  • ARGO’s use of augmented reality (AR) to bring print catalogs to life
  • Xanté’s Infomark to share images and rich-media assets associated with print-based content

The session will also include background material on other kinds of interactive print technologies, such as QR codes and virtual reality (VR).

What you’ll learn:

  • How these technologies work, how they can be implemented, and how they differ from each other
  • Practical, real-world examples of how printers and print customers are using these technologies
  • How to implement these technologies
