NFC brings media content close to the citizens in a city without a traditional public library

In the city of Klagenfurt, Austria, citizens have access to free books and other local art via Near Field Communication technology. This is a result of the Project Ingeborg in which a specific NFC solution was created. The solution builds up a virtual library in the city and a promotion platform for the local artists.

People can use their mobile phones for accessing the free content via NFC and QR-code from the labels that are installed in and around the city. The Project Ingeborg uses Confidex background insensitive NFC labels for ensuring optimum functionality of the system.

“Confidex’s on-metal-tags gave us the flexibility to bring our project into the public space.”

“Conventional NFC-tags did not work on every spot since we found lots of metal grounds.”
