The application 'digital window' in an elevator is realized when a video is displayed depending on the position and the speed of the elevator car. This creates the impression that you are looking out of a window while driving a lift.
Position-dependent video in an elevator
The flexyPage controller evaluates the position data of an elevator every 10 ms, calculates the direction of travel, speed and absolute position of the car and provides this data in real time to the video controllers as a basis for selecting the right video frame. The sensor data can be picked up by the flexyPage controller from the elevator system or evaluated by own position sensors, e.g. for retrofitting, regardless of the elevator system used.
The video controller provides a web interface for uploading a video. After uploading a new video, the controller converts and indexes the video in a special process that then allows access and presentation to a specific video frame in real time. It is also possible to use in an elevator a plurality of video controllers and displays, e.g. allow the view in different directions.
