Coolux integrates interactive panorama

AUTHOR: Inavate

Christen Visuelle Gestaltung, a Swiss visual communication agency, used four coolux Pandoras Box servers for interactive installation, “zug bewegt”. The interactive film panorama has been used at the LUGA exhibition in Lucerne and the MUBA in Basel.

Visitors encountered two semi-round 180° projection screens with panoramic film content.

Eight pressure sensors were hidden underneath the floor. Each time a visitor stepped on one of the eight sensor spots, one of the characters projected onto the screen started to talk to them. The sound was played out through transparent, bell shaped speaker-constructions hanging from the ceiling.

Four coolux Pandoras Box Server STD were at the technical heart of the installation. The coolux Widget Designer PRO allowed for a seamless integration of all interactive elements.

A Sonic Emotion HD Player was being controlled directly through the Pandoras Box Manager by means of its built-in Sonic Emotion extension.
