  Active Print

Active Print links printed matter and digital displays to the world of on-line content. Camera phones are used to read special printed symbols on posters, magazines, leaflets and displays, which link to on-line content, applications and services.

The Active Print project, led by Hewlett-Packard, brings together key technology partners, such as Gavitec, and content providers to participate in application projects that explore the emerging ecosystem of Active Print from content creation through to actual use by consumers.

Try out the technology for yourself by downloading our code reading application Glass or create your own 2D barcode.
