Two Medialon Manager V4 Lites are running at the new Gaudi Centre in Reus, Spain. The system controls all the AV functions and interactivity for exhibits dedicated to Catalonia‘s famed Modernist architect, Antoni Gaudi.
Opened by the City of Reus, the Gaudi Centre features interactive models, tools and personal belongings of the innovative architect, including scale models of the Sagrada Familia cathedral and the undulating roof of La Pedrera, both in Barcelona. Numerous models and projections help visitors understand the thought processes and concepts of Gaudi.
In the Centre‘s AV department Medialon controls
• A Dataton WATCHOUT system for six screens playing MPG files about the Gaudi Center, which are synchronized with a LED lights in a special visitor’s section.
• Four independent WATCHOUT players projected on a curved screen comprising MPG playing examples of architecture.
• Alsesis MIDI 24-channel sound.
• 36 channels of DMX for lighting.
• Eight input sensors and eight output relays.
• Three Edje video repeaters and a sophisticated audio-guide system.
“The most important reason for choosing Medialon Manager V4 was the flexibility of the system to control any device,” notes Lluís Badosa in the technical department of SONO, a leading AV and multimedia producer. “Moreover, we needed to interact with the WATCHOUT system, and the communication between both technologies is very stable.”
Being PC-based and natively using IP control, Medialon Manager can control any software from simple keystroke emulation to complex IP protocols. With more and more devices, such as video servers, PC-based, this opens a wide range of opportunities.
In addition, Medialon Manager‘s embedded Graphical User Interface programming tool has been designed to allow fast and easy programming of the control panel and touchscreen inside the software itself.
Members of SONO‘s technical team also included Lluís Valero, Elena Ortega and Hugo Cadaval.
