NTT Trials Smartphone-Signage Links

By Tom Allen

NTT Communications is testing information sharing between smartphones and digital signage, using communication technology based on the Websocket and WebRTC protocols. Users will be able to download sightseeing- and disaster-related information from signage installed in Fashion Plaza in Mihama Town Resort American Village in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. It will also be possible to share photos using QR codes.
