Hi all, thought you might enjoy this video I made about our collaboration with StandardVision to produce generative animations based on the LA Central Library’s architecture and ornamentation.

Nice work, Neale! Are you able to share any technical details about the wall and/or your content management system? Looks bezel-less? Sorry if I'm not seeing it on your website...

Sure Mike, happy to share. Our video wall is manufactured by Primeview. It’s an array of seamless direct-view LED panels with a pixel pitch of around 5mm. The resolution is 1792x1024. At the moment we use a proprietary media player manufactured by Spinetix which has a rudimentary built-in CMS. This player has been reliable, but it’s functionally pretty limited so we are looking at a few options to build a custom PC and use a new CMS, which will also facilitate real-time or near-time generative animations by being able to run Touch Designer internally. At the moment the animations described in that video exist only as static video files, but once we have a better system in place we hope to have data-driven live generative works running all the time.
