Major UK Publishing House Introduces qode® to U.K. Marketing Audiences
FORT MYERS, Fla., and LONDON, October 17, 2006 – NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NEOM), an innovator in market-driven technologies, said today that Haymarket -- a major U.K. publisher -- has created the first qode®-enabled article for its flagship title, Media Week (www.mediaweek.co.uk).
NeoMedia’s patented qode (www.qode.com) suite is an easy-to-use set of applications that includes qode®reader and qode®window, which provide One Click to Content™ connectivity for products, print, packaging and other physical objects to link directly to specific desired content on the Mobile Internet. qode®reader works with camera phones, letting users “click” on two-dimensional “smart codes” to connect directly to targets, while qode®window lets users enter a key word, phrase or product name to connect to a target.
“The Media Week article inter-actively introduces qode to the U.K. marketing community in a positive and proactive way,” said Martin Copus, president of NeoMedia Mobile and COO of the parent company.
The page, published in the issue due out today, features a two-dimensional “smart code” and invites readers to download and try the qode application, which delivers a live Mobile Web user experience.
NeoMedia’s Copus said that his company “is delighted that such a prestigious magazine as Media Week is the first U.K. title to feature qode, creating a unique opportunity for the sophisticated and highly creative U.K. advertising and marketing communities to try qode themselves. This is just the beginning,” he said, noting that “NeoMedia is eager and excited about bringing our ground-breaking technology to market in the very near future.”
