NTT Com Connects Phones and Digital Signs with WebSocket and WebRTC

NTT Communications is testing WebSocket and WebRTC protocols to connect smartphones with digital signage.  The idea is to provide a convenient method for people to download things such as sightseeing information or disaster response information directly from a digital sign.

The test will be conducted at Mihama Town Resort American Village (American Village) in Chatancho, Okinawa Prefecture during the month of February.

NTT Com will encourage users share their photos by using smartphones to read a QR code on a digital sign to access the service website. Photos uploaded to the website will be used for the creation of mosaic art, which will turn the photos into small pieces of large mosaics that will be displayed on the digital signage. The mosaics will also be available for downloading to users’ smartphones. The test also will evaluate how traffic conditions affect real-time information uploading and downloading of photos using digital signage, specifically in terms of effectiveness, potential technological problems and system load characteristics.
