As well as creating & developing screen content, we also delivered custom gameplay hardware for Tests taking place in the Dorm. We developed several wireless control units for a keypad and a voting podium, working with the art department to fit them discreetly, and with lighting to send MIDI triggers each time a button was pressed.
Wireless systems allowed the podiums to be portable & also involved minimal set-up in the Dormitory which was fundamental to maintaining the integrity of the show & no external contact with contestants. This system meant the gallery could easily & confidently monitor votes during each Test without worrying whether they had caught the right shot on camera as the data fed directly into the graphics system.
