FAQ

What is AR technology?

Augmented Reality (AR) is the real-time compositing of digital assets onto the real world. Currently, AR technology is primarily used within handheld electronic applications like smartphones, and in some cases through wearable headsets. Need claritifcation? Watch a demo here.

How does Aircards AR technology work?

The AR experience is initiated by either scanning a QR code with your smartphone camera, or navigating to a unique web-link. Both of these actions launch the AR experience in your mobile web browser, where our image tracking technology is then used to play a video or animation that is augmented into your reality.

How can I use Aircards AR technology?

Augmented Reality can be used to massively increase the engagement of any traditional 2D printed material. Print advertising, business cards, pull-up banners, billboards - AR can be used at any size or scale. Imagine interactive flyers, magazines and posters that spring to life, and eye-catching new product launches - all powered through AR technology.

Do I need to download an app to view the AR experience?

No way! We use cutting-edge cloud-based AR technology, which means that our AR experiences require absolutely no 3rd party app download to view. Simply scan the QR code or navigate to the unique web-link and point your phone at the image target to activate the AR experience. Only three taps required.

Can I sell AR technology to my own customers?

Yes, we work with multiple direct mail and print marketing businesses. Using this technology to improve their own service offering. If you'd like more information on how our partnerships work, get in touch.

What do I actually receive when I start an AR campaign?

After you provide us with your existing graphic, flyer, poster, or business card design file, we’ll add our activation instructions that initiates the bespoke AR experience. Then, we train our computer vision algorithm to recognize your design, and create a unique webpage for your experience. We will then send you a final design file (in PDF format) which will be ready for printing!

What do I need to provide in order to start an AR Print Marketing campaign?

For standard 2D experiences, we require:

1. A 2D vector design file which you’d like to add Augmented Reality (Illustrator [.ai] file type preferred). We recommend graphics with standard ISO dimensions (A1, A2, A3, etc.)

2. The HD video that you wish to augment. We recommend a length of 30 seconds or less for speedy load times. For our standard A5 Aircard, we recommend a 4:3 video aspect ratio.

3. The text and link for your custom Call-to-Action (CTA) button. For example: “Order an AR campaign!”, www.aircards.co

4. Your logo, in PNG format, with a transparent background. We will use this to brand your AR experience(optional).

For 3D AR experiences, reach out to us for more detailed information. If you do not have existing assets, no worries! Our design team can create all of the above, for an additional fee.
Reach out below with your design ideas and we’ll give you a quote.

What is image tracking?

Image tracking is a key ingredient to each AR experience. After the QR code is scanned to initiate the AR experience, your design graphic (or “image target”) is processed by our computer vision technology to augment your Aircard. Watch a demo of image tracking.

Why should I be interested in Augmented Reality ?
