i’ve been somewhat remiss in not posting up the finished mpc screen, but thanks to a little cover work there i had the chance to go round and take some photos of it out in the wild. so here is the one i’ll always remember most as it was the first screen to be was deployed in the wild.
in its menu it has around thirty 1080P showreels and vfx breakdowns of the various film and commercial work, along with the ability to browse documentation pdfs and the mpc client and public facing web sites, and 15 channels of tv to flick between. for anything that isn’t suited to that branded, full screen environment, the last option flips the screen into a mac desktop with finder etc., complete with apple-store style desktop buttons giving quick access to all the apps that might be wanted in a meeting room. best of all, it will time out back to the full screen carousel menu, and then time out to its own screensaver, so as you walk around the building the screens always showing something visually pleasing and branded into the building.
its been quite a project, and that doesn’t even touch the system administration side.
