Media Experience

The ARSBOX is the centerpiece of the presentation and research equipment installed at the Center for Advanced Studies and Research in Information and Communication Technologies & Society.

To optimize its function, the entire system has been architecturally integrated into the facility’s spatial concept. One entire wall can be used as a projection surface for presentations. A graphic user interface running on a wireless handheld PC (Palmist Project) makes it possible to control a broad spectrum of content from any position in the room. In this way, a presentation can be custom-assembled from a wide variety of media such as PowerPoint presentations, videos and 3-D applications.
Particularly in the context of the university’s ICT&S program, which will focus on the interrelationships between information and communication technologies and society, this infrastructure set-up also provides the ideal prerequisites for specific research undertakings like usability studies.

In addition to the installation of the infrastructure, the Ars Electronica Futurelab also created a virtual information platform consistent with the innovative character of the client that commissioned it. Information on the new ICT&S program, the history of the building, the department’s organizational structure as well as documentation of its current projects are depicted three-dimensionally in walk.in.formation. Users can navigate through a digital model of the facility and access relevant information in the form of integrated videos, texts and graphics at corresponding locations.
