Digital Signage / Digitale Beschilderung

For the Museum of Contemporary Art (Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst, GfzK) Leipzig, Enrico Zini and I created software used for digital signage. The GfzK has set up three screens each of which is connected to a RaspberryPi running our software. We created a web interface for the staff to upload slideshows (video, PDF, images, ODP). The devices synchronize automatically over the local network. It's possible to have each screen display a different slideshow. My work consisted in project management (need finding, prioritization, communication), debugging, and documentation.

Client: Galerie für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig
Year: 2020

The code is published under a free software license and available on Github Himblick project on Github. Enrico has blogged about the technical creation process.
