VISA use AR to help consumers experience 'something new'

Visa – supplier of payment solutions –  created one of the largest interactive augmented reality based campaigns in Poland. The road show for the campaign “Try something new with Visa” using augmented reality technology featured events in Warsaw, Krakow, Wrocław and Gdansk.
During the four weekends of promotional events, residents of the largest Polish cities could experience “something new”, thanks to augmented reality technology combining the real world with the computer-generated one. Images from the camera directed at the event participants were displayed on a 15m2 LED screen. When someone entered a marked white circle, the screen displayed additional animated objects and characters. Visitors to the shopping mall could see and hear an elephant passing by, pet a panda bear and a giraffe, high-five some monkeys and become a member of a family of penguins. What is more, they could see themselves on the Moon, on a desert island surrounded by sharks, or abducted in an alien space ship!
The application devised by Lemon&Orange allowed users to take photos during their interaction with animated characters and objects. Later they could browse them on a touch screen and – using an iPad dedicated application – choose the best pictures, add comments and send them to a chosen e-mail address. The e-mail included also links allowing to automatically share the photograph on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. These photographs were also entered in the “Try something new with Visa” photo-competition .

PSI, Posterscope’s international division, has signed its first hotel wifi sponsorship deal, for Visa China, as part of a wider out-of-home (OOH) campaign promoting its China Merchants Bank card to Chinese tourists as they arrive, travel to and stay in London.
The sponsorship, delivered in partnership with Luxia Global and Starcom UK, incorporates sponsorship of guest wifi services in 68 four and five star hotels across London throughout July. Users will be identified through browser language, served messaging in Chinese, and later retargeted with digital ads on relevant tourist and shopping websites.

The sponsorship completes a campaign appearing along the Heathrow to London “travel corridor” featuring digital OOH sites throughout Heathrow’s T5 terminal, lamppost banners across Central London and in shopping hotspots, plus a wrap of a Central London tourist bus.
James McEwan, deputy MD, at PSI said: “We are delighted to have been able to secure this sponsorship opportunity and add a targeted element to Visa’s wider campaign for its China Merchant Bank card. By supporting the provision of wifi in key hotels frequented by Chinese visitors to London, we are able to put the brand directly into the hands of the target audience at a time when they are relaxing and open to receiving brand messages.”
A spokesperson for Starcom UK, added: “The sponsorship of guest wifi is an exciting addition to our campaign for the China Merchant Bank card. The ability to reach these travellers in their own language as they arrive in London, and be associated with such a highly valued service as guest wifi is a great manifestation of Visa’s brand desire to be ‘everywhere you want to be’.”
