Blocks is the
one-stop-shop software for creating dynamic room experiences.
Display, control, interact — all in one system.

Blocks and spots.

Arrange content using our smart building blocks. Then drag those to the display spots. Quick and simple as that.

Large projections

Any image, video, live stream, 3D or interactive content on any display, projector, touch screen, TV or LED wall.

Any mobile phone, iPad or Android tablet can act as an audio/multi-media guide. Or give on-site staff control of the presentation environment.
No app required.

Any lighting fixture from a simple HUE bulb, architectural lighting based on DALI or KNX, all the way up to multi-channel moving heads using DMX512 and ArtNet.

Tailor sound to your audiences' preferences. Use your visitors' phones, headphones or regular speakers, multi-channel surround sound or complex soundscapes and zone mixers.

Initiate actions on motion, distance, touch, mechanical input or other events, using simple GPIO triggers or industry-standard interfaces, such as MODBUS.

Provide a physical and intuitive form of interaction based on the identity, placement and orientation of objects using RFID or NFC technology or other types of proximity sensors.

Use GPS, Beacons, QR-codes and themed tokens to know who's where, resulting in an immersive experience tailored to each visitor's preferences and individual interactions.

Turn projectors, displays, players and other devices on and off as appropriate, based on time of day, sensors or operator interaction.

Make decisions based on time, date, sensors, interaction or other inputs. Use tasks, scripts and variables behind the scenes – from simple conditions to complex programming.

Leverage the full power of the network, both on the front-end using CSS, custom web content and programming, and on the back-end with full support for web APIs and server protocols.

Blocks integrates with and controls specialized systems for very large-scale, edge-blended projection, geometry correction and 3D image mapping on buildings and other objects.

Media Files and Slideshows

Blocks handles all the basic signage stuff. Arrange images, audio, video, web pages, or any other block types described below, into scrollable sequences or slideshows with transitions and other behaviors.

Play

Synchronizer

Synchronize video playing across displays, or audio playing on one device (such as a mobile phone) with video and lighting effects playing on another (such as a large display or projection wall).

Play

Panorama

Bring your visitors into environments they can't visit in person using an immersive, 360-degree panorama. Clickable hotspots move to new virtual rooms or trigger other actions in Blocks.

Play

3D

Pick up objects, spin them around and watch them operate. The 3D block makes your hidden treasures come alive. Define interesting poses and animations. Hotspots trigger object-specific or system-wide actions.

Live Video

Bring in live video streams originating from the internet or a local camera, computer or streaming device. Supports live streaming protocols such as RTSP, RTMP and HLS.

Locator

Play content relevant to your current location, whether in a room, a building or a city. Furthermore, content can adapt to your language, age or other preferences.

Controls

Click, touch, type, scroll and swipe. There's a full complement of interactive control blocks for triggering local or system-wide actions, providing data input or just browsing around.

The Player

Free PIXILAB Player software turns any Intel NUC or similar PC into a powerful multi-media player or interactive kiosk, driving one or more display devices and multiple sound channels. Connect hard-wired buttons. Power on/off player and display over the network.

The Network

Blocks acts as the media hub, talking to players, displays, tablets, phones and I/O-devices over your network. Use the cellular (mobile) network for large-scale, outdoor applications. Encrypted connections, single-sign-on and other advanced security features are all there.

Logic and Data

Blocks is fully programmable. From basic binding of buttons and sliders to devices, through the drag-and-drop Task builder, all the way to advanced, code-level APIs and device drivers. It can talk to an external CMS or databases in JSON, XML, SQL, REST or other protocols.
