New: SoundCloud Audio Support

Chris Cameron October 2, 2013

SoundCloud is a great way for anyone to upload, listen and share audio, from music to podcasts and more. Now, in the Layar Creator, you can easily add SoundCloud audio to your interactive print.

As of today in the Layar Creator, you’ll find our new SoundCloud widget in the Media section of our Standard buttons. Here’s how to add a SoundCloud audio file to your campaign:

  1. Enter the SoundCloud URL for the piece of audio you want to add.
  2. Choose whether the audio should autoplay or not.
  3. Hit “Apply changes” and you’re done!

You’ll see a nice little SoundCloud widget appear on your page, complete with the track’s artwork, name, artist and duration. When a user scans your page, they can tap the orange play button to listen to the audio or tap the SoundCloud logo to view the track on the web.

ALSO! We have new sharing options right here on the blog!

If you look below this post, you’ll notice that Facebook and Twitter have been joined by LinkedIn, Pinterest and Email sharing options. We hope you find these added options useful for sharing our posts with your friends, family, followers and contacts!

ARE 2011 - Adriano Farano on AR in Journalism

Chris Cameron May 31, 2011

When was the last time you picked up a newspaper? Maybe there was one laying around on the train during your morning commute, but this day and age, a physical print newspaper is a form of media being consumed less and less.



With the countless number of better ways to receive up-to-the-minute news and information, newspapers just don’t stand a chance. The problem for most news organizations is that newspaper subscriptions and advertising have made up a significant chunk of their revenue, and those two areas have been struggling with the rise of new media.



So it makes sense that those interested in preserving journalism are concerned with finding ways for it to connect with readers through new media. Enter Adriano Farano, who spoke at Augmented Reality Event earlier this month about the topic of augmented reality and journalism.



To hear how Adriano thinks these two industries can come together, check out the video of his talk embedded below!
