My lobby exists only in my head currently.
But I've been working on a digital movie poster "lightbox" project, for the small space that will eventually be
the entry area. It will float off the wall slightly, feature a wood frame and a metal faceplate covering a LG 42"
1080P IPS hdtv. Not sure if I'll backlight it, but that could be an easy option with the wood surround floating
off the wall. The hdtv surround design is inspired by Framed 2.0.I'm kind of aiming for a modern interpretation
of old school movie theater light boxes.
Just a poor quality video, showing the internal slideshow playing posters off a usb drive. Kind of a proof of concept,
done with a Bristol board mask. The posters are mostly downsized from higher resolution and range from nice to outright
stunning. A side component of the project is a Google Drive for sharing the "software" posters.
While I am using the internal media player, I picked up an Amazon FireTV media player last week, and plan to give it
a try too.
And three 1080x1600 posters expanded to include the color bar showing off the text back light panel. The thinking here
is to not wear the full hdtv lcd panel unevenly while still keeping to a 27x40" poster ratio.
