PIXILAB BLOCKS® is a brand new software for producing and managing rich experiences for museums, exhibitions, visitor centers and corporate presentations. It features a unique mix of content and display management, control system capabilities, interactive presentation and mobile guide functions.
The server is at the heart of the Blocks system, catering to every aspect of your show. Running on Mac, Windows or Linux, it connects to displays, players, mobiles, I/O-modules, wifi and other subsystems.
Produce your media content, control the room experience, create interactive presentations and build mobile guides. All from your laptop over the network. From content production, all the way to the displays, BLOCKS takes care of the whole chain. Displays can be anything from phones, iPads and tablets, LCD displays, all the way up to huge LED walls. Touch displays add interactive dimensions. Content can be scheduled or called up on demand.
Do you have power and lights to turn on, volume levels to control, video inputs to switch or sensors to sense? BLOCKS comes with a control system built in. Tasks can be triggered based on inputs or time of day, connecting to I/O subsystems including sensors, buttons and relays.
BLOCKS creates immersive, interactive presentations. Add buttons to control the presentation or its environment. Or use hidden sensors to trigger presentation aspects without any deliberate interaction at all. Presentations can be tailored to your visitors' needs in various ways. For instance, adapt on-screen content to the visitor's language.
Personal mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, can be used to engage your visitors even more. A local wifi network lets visitors use their own phones, possibly augmented by some loaner devices. A numeric keypad, or a simple menu, establishes the proper location in a building, thereby presenting relevant content. Add some bluetooth beacons, to make the navigation even more seamless.
