We made a remote control console that changes the content displayed on some TVs. Watch the videos below to see how we did it. An effect like this could improve a trade show booth, a kiosk, a presentation, or any other context where you want to seamlessly and remotely change the content displayed in a browser. This project takes advantage of the easy data hosting capability of DSA and the rapid application development of DGLux5.
If you want to follow along with the video, you will need:
- One or more TVs or monitors, each displaying a full-screen web browser window.
- A phone or another computer that you want to use to control the displays.
The computers used with the TVs must be able to connect to the DSA server. These computers also must have an Internet or network connection that can access the content that you want to display.
Video #1: Style
This video shows how to create the visual style of the control console using layout and the symbol component in DGLux5.
Video #2: Data and Logic
This video shows how to create the data and logic that store and manage the URLs associated with the monitors.
