What’s QR Code?

Scan this QR code for URL information

QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is quite similar to a barcode which contains machine-readable data (alpha numeric A123456 like ID or characters). Unlike a regular barcode, QR Code is two dimensional, i.e. it contains information both in vertical and horizontal directions (black dotted within square shape) therefore, it can contain a lot more information.

The limitation of barcode is that it can contact only simple and short length of limited characters like 10 digits such as Product ID (For example, A0001). Since QR code is two dimensional, it can contains up to 4290 alphanumeric characters. Because of this capability, it opens up for various use cases creatively in our daily life and replacing barcode.

That’s why we can use QR code for sharing information such as Website URL in product brochure or promotional flyers, Person’s e-Business card in QR code, etc. by interacting with our mobile phone camera ability to scan QR Code.

Nowadays, most events use QR Code for various reasons.
