Open Forum: What's the Best Way to Display SL at a Public Event Under Non-Ideal Conditions?
Hardcore SL techies, event managers, and other experts, we need your advice: Next month (September 8 to be exact), Second Life is going to be featured onstage at the DNA Lounge, one of San Francisco's top nightclubs, for the annual Bootie SF/SL mixed reality show. However, at last year's event, this is what Second Life looked like, projected behind the DJ's booth:
It was about as blurry as that, in person; the big screen wouldn't display SL in high res, and most of SL was an unresolved gray blur. I talked about the tech problems in a post last year. This year, however, Bootie SL's on-site manager Keela Latte is trying to improve the performance. Here's what she's dealing with:
- She can run SL on her Alienware or Mac
- The DNA screens only take S-Video or composite video
- The DNA uses wifi
Basically, we're looking for the best way to feature Second Life on big screens in as optimal a way as possible, despite such technical limitations. I've asked Keela to participate in Comments, so she can specify more details and field suggestions.
