HSBCTELIBRAHMA uses augmented reality applications to get customers to interact with HSBC Bank via their mobile handsets. In this, static hoardings and print ads of the bank convey messages to the customers once they input the AR code into their individual handsets. All communication from the bank carries a unique AR code that represents corresponding content.

Augmented Reality for HSBC

Augmented reality and advertising:

  • Augmented reality enables higher levels of engagement and interactivity with the targeted consumers. When advertising based on AR is delivered through mobile, brands would benefit from the reach, engagement and measurement.
  • With AR, advertisers can use static objects like banner, print ads and even product displays to deliver personalized information and experience to targeted customers.
  • Today AR can be used for creating extremely novel and engaging applications without a large budget. These applications can enable interaction with brand, products and characters in compelling ways not previously possible.
  • However with its cool aspect interaction can quickly go viral and spread exposure with word of mouth, social networking, and link sharing.
  • In summary AR
  • Enables exciting rich media engagements with targeted consumers
