The ORF guidance system provides detailed and comprehensive information for visitors to the ORF’s Upper Austria Regional Studio.
The newsroom in the ORF’s Upper Austria Regional Studio has a free-form structure—there are no strictly assigned office spaces. This necessitated making an interactive, permanently updated tool available to visitors.
These requirements are satisfied by the guidance system developed in the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The information system consists of a kiosk featuring two screens: the bottom one, a touchscreen, displays a menu that enables the user to select a particular staff member of certain departments and obtain information on the individual’s current location in the newsroom, which is constantly updated online; the top screen displays a computer animation sequence that features an integrated live feed from the newsroom’s studio.
