Scandit CTO Christian Floerkemeier demystifies the QR Code on Swiss National Television

Ever wonder how QR codes work? How they’re created? Our CTO Christian Floerkemeier was featured in a enlightening piece on Swiss National Television that took an in-depth look at the technical side of the QR code. The show, Einstein, reports weekly on science and engineering issues. The topic was 1D and 2D code scanning with mobile phones–including how QR codes are generated, how they are decoded with a cell phone and how they are used. Christian also examines how scanning a 1D barcode with a cell phone is much harder than QR codes, and how Scandit has approached problem in providing one of the best solutions world-wide.
