AA new feature at this year’s GRAPH EXPO is “The Printerverse” by the Print Media Centr (Booth 3861), a multi-media “hot spot” where attendees can experience and “test drive” some of the ground-breaking communications tools that are moving the graphic communications industry in new and exciting directions.
This interactive networking/education haven will offer attendees the opportunity to engage in live, real time applications, networking activities, and face-to-face Q&A sessions with top industry experts. Show goers are invited to visit here throughout the show to play a few rounds of Guitar Hero, experience Intelligent Print Recognition (iPR) and Augmented Reality first hand, watch a Pecha Kucha, celebrate the launch of National Girls Who Print Day, or be part of history as Print Media Centr creates the world’s first interactive message board.

The GRAPHitti Wall
The GRAPHitti Wall is an interactive message board created by PrintMediaCentr and the attendees and exhibitors at GRAPH EXPO.
The Components: A photo, a video, image recognition technology, and social media.
The Process: All attendees and exhibitors at GRAPH EXPO are invited to take free pictures in The Printerverse Photo Booth sponsored by Eastman Kodak. One of the photos from the strip plus a short video captured on the spot will be uploaded to Print Media Centr’s GRAPH EXPO 2012 YouTube Playlist. The photo will be made interactive using Documobi Intelligent Print Recognition (iPR), linked to the video, and placed on the GRAPHitti Wall.
The Result: After downloading an iPR Reader App for a smartphone or tablet, visitors to the GRAPHitti Wall will be able to scan the photos and see videos.
