Help needed with interactive exhibit

edited November 2013 in MAIN

We are a company developing content for a "discovery centre" in Ontario, Canada. We're based in Toronto.

We have a need for a themed elevator experience.

The concept is that an LCD panel (or perhaps several) will be mounted in the elevator. The elevator control system will send commands to a playback engine that will play back 3D animated video (and accompanying audio) simulating a window on the "trip" the elevator is taking. The system needs to be bale to handle multiple types of trips (stopping on intermediate floors, going up, going down, long trips, shorter trips). We have a plan for handling trip variations but it would involve layering a video stream with an alpha channel in real time over a second video stream "underneath" the first.

We're looking for someone who can handle the video/audio playback engine and the interface between the playback computer and the elevator control system.

Reply either to this message or via PM. Thanks!

  • All right, so @smg669, please contact @Tryll that's already interested in your project !
