QR Codes, or Quick Response Codes, were invented in 1994 by Denso Wave. It is a type of matrix barcode that usually send the reader to a website or application. First created for the automotive industry, QR codes soon spread to other industries thanks to their storage capacity and easy readability. Today they are most popular in industries utilizing low-touch solutions.
You can generate QR codes on many free websites; we recommend goqr.me. Choose type, add relevant information and try out your QR code with a live preview. Once you got your QR code, load it into your livestream via the CamOverlay App. We’ve already shared step to step tutorial.
Whatever link you’ll use when generating the QR code, will be its destination. If you want to use it for fundraising, just set a paywall of your choice as the target. Paypal is one of the easiest options. The QR code is set as an overlay, so it will stay on the video even when it’s archived. That means that you will be able to collect money as long as the video is up. For a practical example, see the Zemlinsky Quartet concert.
