Which Movie do you want to watch? Trailer Catcher will help you.

Posted on: No Comments

       Another useful application developed by ARLab using Image Matching and AR Browser is “Trailer Catcher”. Trailer Catcher brings you the latest movie trailers released and currently available on the cinema screens. What you have to do is just pointing your device towards the movie cover in portrait mode and automatically the movie will be recognized and the trailer will be launched. Every week the available trailers will be updated and their cover pictures will be listed in the application.

       The cover recognition is not the only functionality Trailer Cacther brings to you. With its Augmented Reality Browser integrated you are able to take a look at the surrounding movie theaters, checking their locations and their distances to where you are. Furthermore, you can get directions to the closest cinemas or the ones you selected and use the ARView to reach them, following the points direction. We have also thought in the social networks in this application so you will be able to invite your friends to go with you or share with them what are you going to do.

After having launched the beta version of the Augmented Reality Image Matching SDK, the ARLab mobile team developed this simple application using this tool. This application is able to recognize in real-time one of the posters that have been previously downloaded and stored in the device’s database, and once this happens, it launches a screen where the users can choose among several actions, like:

  • - Watch the trailer.
  • - See the movie’s info, like the synopsis or rankings.
  • - or visit the movie´s official website.
