These days museums have large parts of their collection locked away in huge archives.
The Fashion Museum of Antwerp (MoMu) tranforms this problem in one of their strengths by digitally unlocking their hidden treasures to the public.
The setup runs from a single computer rendering 8xHD at a resolution of 7680x2160 at 60fps spanning an area of 10m2.
To maximise the speed on our display computer we used a Linux server where a Node.js CMS did most of the preprocessing of text,images and video.
Using a DXT convertor for video preprocessing and phantom.js to render text compositions to image files.
The whole setup supports 80 simultaneous touches.
