New ArtScan App bridges the gap between physical and digital media
May 2, 2012 in Entertainment
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Online streaming services like Spotify and Youtube can bring consumers almost any piece of music or video instantly, but when faced with such overwhelming choice, it can be hard to find inspiration. The Artscan Player app brings back a physical relationship between the offline world we live in and the online media on offer through these services. Using image search technology The Artscan Player app for iOS recognises whatever users show it and brings them associated media in moments.
Perhaps a commuter is on the bus and sees a film poster that looks interesting- after a quick scan of the image, Artscan Player will find the trailer on youtube. Or a music collector might be in a record store flicking through some old LPs. Just scanning a cover will cue up the album to play back while they make up their mind. Art Scan Ltd want to inspire people to interact with their digital media in a new way.
