A BLOCKS STORY
The Film Village
A BLOCKS STORY
Content had to adapt to the visitors' languages. A large-scale, curved screen presentation, with customizable scheduling for high/low seasons was desired for the entrance holding area. A number of synchronized projections and displays bridge from the entrance into the main exhibit. A large number of audio channels had to be provided, including staff-managed volume control throughout the building. Content had to be easy to update, while the cost of playback devices had to be kept at a minimum. The whole system, including a multi-purpose conference room, had to be fully automated, allowing the entire system, including all visuals, kiosks, sound, lights and power to be managed and scheduled.
JÖRGEN BÖRLING • SYSTEMS INTEGRATOR
All content is produced and streamed using Blocks, including the interactive kiosks and their language selections. Chromebox players provide cost effective playback of interactive content, video and audio. Players running the interactive kiosks are distributed throughout the building, along with their touch displays and local audio. A WATCHOUT subsystem drives the curved screen pre-show, under command from the Blocks server along with projectors, system power, volume levels and lighting. Contact closure inputs provide some manual overrides, including integration with the emergency and fire alarm systems, turning all displays off in such an event.
