Why video/visual recognition?

In today’s competitive global marketplace, video and image recognition technology are paramount for communication.

The ability for computers to recognise visuals, images, even VIDEOS, is probably the most exciting application of AI! As an AI-powered ‘interactive’ technology, Scanto’s patented computer vision system provides a solution that recognises visuals, images and videos. This means all media material – from print to billboard ads to banners, as well as digital signage, video walls and even live television, can be made actionable from within a branded environment, giving consumers one single user experience for multiple engagements across all physical media.

4 advantages of Scanto Technology over QR code

Distance and Placement of a Visual or Video

QR Codes need to be scanned in close proximity due to its size. A huge QR code on a poster is ugly and kills creativity.

Visual Recognition Technology only requires 30% of the visuals to recognize it.

Brand Equity for a Visual or Video

Users scan unrecognizable computer code for interaction. Users have no idea what the QR codes will lead them to.

Users scan recognizable brand/image/poster or video for interaction.

Ownership / Security

You do not own the QR code even if you generated it. Trust issue with QR codes.

A logo or creative poster is copyrighted and owned by you.
