AR second screen interaction
Exciting second screen action here. Personally not a fan of the little 3D models dancing around my lounge room, but it does get the brain ticking over for other applications. Like maybe what a home theatre could look like around your telly. Or for travel companies showing what it would look like to be watching your telly in say Times Square???
Visual SyncAR, from NTT, uses digital watermarks embedded in the video stream to display synchronized content on a second screen. The screen area and playback timing is quickly detected, allowing for CG overlays and contextual information to be displayed with precision.
