The UBS PHOTO FIELD consists of 32 little TFT monitors – driven by four Windows computers running VVVV – and a Bar Code reader. Users can register on the system’s web site and upload their favorite photos, or create collections of photos from their colleagues. With a 2D bar code printed from the web site they can then enter the installation, show the barcode to the system and in return the system shows the photos from their own collection &endash; and those of their co-workers.
Closely implementing a concept by JBS, this was a joint project for both the digital interiors and the web solutions department here at MESO. While the web interface was crafted from MESO’s own CMS system aspect:ratio, the local setup relied entirely on – you guessed it – vvvv.
Using state-of-the-art computer technology (as always), each computer is capable of feeding eight XGA outputs to the monitors easily. And with quite decent performance, as well. VVVV facilitated a very cost-effective solution with its excellent multi-monitor support.
