Kinect Video Wall

This project was originally part of the the Cisco House pavilion and was build upon for an installation in Cisco's Global Centre of Excellence in Songdo, South Korea. This video wall is still active and is the first digital feature that welcomes guests upon arrival to the centre.

The application is controlled via gesture controls using the Kinect depth camera. The main feature is a library of Cisco brand videos divided into three categories. A user can select a video category with their left hand and then choose a video with their right hand. In addition to the video player, a user can also initiate one of two live video conferences simply by standing on a hotspot marked by a floor decal.

A second custom Kinect interpretor application was built to support the primary app. Kinect data is optimised and sent to the main application over UDP on the local network. This application has since been reused in many other kinect controlled applications.
