Fujitsu Demonstrates Alternative To QR Codes On TV

This information (such as URLs, coupons, and other data) can be transmitted from the TV to a viewer’s smartphone. When they’re watching an advert, they could see a prompt to hold their phone up to the screen from up to 2-3 meters away for a few seconds, which would transmit a corresponding coupon or bring up a relevant website on their mobile device.
