3D Show Control and Playback

3D Show Control and Playback

CHALLENGE: During the Digital Darkroom show held at the Annenberg Space for Photography Museum in Los Angeles. The foundation had the challenge of quickly converting part of it's space into a 3d theater complete with high frame rate 3d playback, screens and automation. Limited time and resources were required to take a space that had not been built for a “theater “ environment and transform it into a fully automated playback system.

SOLUTION: To meet the requirements of playback of two (left and right eye) 2k streams of uncompressed 30FPS content and a Delta media player were chosen. Jay developed a system that easily allowed the content producers to load uncompressed media files and 5.1 surround sound synced for quick review and playback without any rendering. Once content was approved, a Medialon control system was custom programmed to integrate with the museums current lighting and monitor systems to provide and automated theater that would play 8 hours a day during a several month install without need for manual upkeep.

RESULT: Fully automated and synchronizing video, audio and lighting control system that worked seamlessly within the existing museum technology and met the foundations IT requirements.
