  16. 16. What is a QR Code?<br />A standard UPC Code can contain up to 12 numbers.<br />Quick Response (QR) codes were created by Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994.<br />Microsoft TAG<br />QR Code<br />
  17. 17. Anatomy of a QR Code<br />Finder Pattern - Enables scanners to identify the QR Code. Alterations can prevent scanners from reading the code.<br />Format Info - What scanners read first when the code is decoded. It contains the mask pattern and error correction rate of the code.<br />Timing Pattern - White and black modules (pixel element) are alternately arranged to determine the coordinate. The timing pattern is placed between two finder patterns in a QR code.<br />Version Info - Identifies the version of the QR Code. Data storage capacity and error correction levels vary by version.<br />Encoded Data - data that needs to be interpreted by the scanner.<br />Alignment Pattern - Enables QR Code scanners to correct for distortion when the code is bent or curved. Distortion and alterations to this pattern is not recommended<br />Quite Zone - Space left around the QR Code for optimal readability. It is suggested that quiet zones are 2-4 modules wide. A module is the single smallest pixel element of the QR Code.<br />

  20. 20. Why Now?<br />Marketers are spending tens of millions of dollars in the U.S. promoting QR codes as part of their engagement strategies.<br />QR code reading applications are virtually ubiquitous:<br />Android: QR codes can be used in Google's mobile Android operating system via both their own Google Goggles application or 3rd party barcode scanners like Zxing or Kaywa. <br />Nokia: The Symbian operating system features a barcode scanner which can read QR codes.<br />Apple iOS: A QR code reader is not natively included, but more than fifty paid and free apps are available with both scanning capabilities and hard-linking to URI. <br />BlackBerry: The App World application can natively scan QR codes and load any recognized Web URLs on the device's Web browser. <br />Windows Phone 7: Following an upcoming update (as of 2011), Windows Phone 7 will be able to scan QR codes through the Bing search app.<br />
  21. 21. Are They Really Being Used?<br />In a sign of growth for the technology, some 14 million people in the U.S. — more than twice the population of Massachusetts — used a QR code in June, according to a new report.<br />Those people, representing 6.2% of the total mobile audience in the U.S., scanned a QR or bar code on their mobile device, comScore estimates. The report also showed that QR code users are more likely to be male (60.5%), between the ages of 18 to 34 (53.4%) and have a household income in excess of $100,000 (36.1%)<br />Magazines and newspapers are the preferred vehicle for scanning QR codes (49.4%), followed by product packaging, (34.3%). The preferred place to scan was at home (58%) and then retail stores (39.4%). <br />ComScore’s report was based on a sample of 14,452 adults. The study was the first time comScore measured QR code use.<br />Mashable: August 12, 2011<br />
