What It's For
The VLC Station Controller was created for a multi-display setup with a need to simultaneously start videos of different lengths. It calculates the time differences to ensure that each display begins its video at the same time. This setup is required for instances where multiple viewers must watch videos by moving from one display to the next.
How It Works
Each station runs "Station Controller", through which essential functions can be executed and video can be displayed. The application hides the desktop and taskbar in order to disable PC tampering by guests.
NASA A-Mazes You
NASA's "A-Mazes You" exhibit features five video wall stations, each with their own video to allow maze visitors to watch one after the other. This exhibit utilizes the VLC Station Controller to ensure that as a visitor moves from one station to the next, their video is ready for them.
