The UBS PHOTO FIELD consists of 32 little TFT monitors – driven by 4 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 enter the installation to be presented with the photos from their own collection. - 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 8 XGA outputs to the momitors easily. And with quite decent performance, as well. VVVV facilitated a very cost-effective solution with its excellent multi-monitor support.
