Blocks

Display, Control, Interact — all in one system.

PIXILAB BLOCKS Content - display - management

Arrange content using our smart building blocks. Then drag those to the Display Spots. Quick and simple as that.
A Display Spot can take many forms. Basically it is a browser in kiosk mode that can be displayed on a selection of media players that boot with Pixilab player software via USB or network. But other devices such as a Smart TV, Chromebox or PC with browser can also be used.

What is PIXILAB BLOCKS

PIXILAB Blocks® is software for producing and managing rich experiences for visitor centers, museums, exhibitions and corporate presentations. It features a unique mix of content and display management, control system capabilities, interactive presentations and mobile guide functions.

Just like LEGO bricks, blocks can be combined in an almost infinite number of ways. This lets you build anything from a simple digital-signage-style slide show up to an interactive kiosk or a mobile guide system with video and audio playing in sync across multiple devices.

For example, use a Composition block to arrange images and buttons to create an attractive user interface. If your design is complex, use a Book block to spread multiple Composition blocks across several pages. To tell a story, use a Slideshow block with a couple of images or short video clips. For an interactive visitor kiosk, use an Attractor block to show an attract loop until a visitor approaches the kiosk.
