Q & A : What do you need to use a QR code

Your ability to read a QR code and thereby gain access to the information it represents depends on two things: a camera phone and a software application for it.

Camera phone: camera phones may be either fixed- or auto-focus. For reading QR codes, auto-focus is best. A fixed-focus camera may require holding the phone at the right angle and distance from the QR code, while an auto-focus camera will adjust to the situation.

To ensure a good read, the QR code itself contains positional alignment indicators and internal orientation calibration as well as code redundancy. This means that a QR code can be read whether right side up, upside down, rotated 90 degrees, or even wrapped on a curved surface. Call Express Printing and Graphics, Inc. to let us show you how a QR Code can work best for your Sunnyvale Business.

Software application: camera phones require QR code reader software to decode the QR code. Newer versions of the Google Android and Nokia Symbian operating systems come with a QR reader application installed; other phones require the user to locate the app on the Internet and install it.

Since there is no universal standard or complete consistency across all camera phone operating systems, mobile phone owners must determine the best reader for each individual device. Two web sites – www.getreader.com and www.mobile-barcodes.com – have a list of readers. Enter the URL into the browser of the camera phone and a self-detecting utility will identify and download the best reader for that specific device. Call Express Printing and Graphics, Inc. to let us show you how a QR Code can work best for your Sunnyvale Business.
