TouchScreen and MultiScreen Question

October 20, 2013 | 7:27 pm

Hey All,

So it’s been a few years since I’ve interacted with Max and that was primarily doing more robotics kind of stuff. However, a colleague of mine just approached me about an interactive video installation she wants to revamp and I thought that Max might fit the bill, but wanted to query y’all and see if what she/I would want to do is possible (or if it’s possible but we’d need to use a specific OS (i.e. Windows or Mac).

Situation 1 (Ideal)
Three Screens
One Screen is the backend screen with the patches open.
One Screen would only play videos in fullscreen.
One Screen would be a touchscreen that would control the videos playing on the 2nd screen (basically there would be a type of menu on that screen and by pressing an area on there you activate a different video).

Situation 2 (We can live with)
Two Screens
One Screen for only videos in fullscreen.
One Screen would act as the input screen basically the same menu showing as above, but would be over the patches (would want to hide the patches and make sure no one can touch those but us while the project is running.) It doesn’t have to be a touchscreen, but would be nice.

I appreciate any thoughts y’all have.
