K-Jing is a client-server application that uses internet and portable tablet computers.
Used for speakers presentations - in conferences as well as museums – this user-friendly software helps tailoring exhibited contents to visitors’ needs, expectations and specificities such as language abilities, age, etc.
The name is a reference to D-Jing (a music mixing program) and V-Jing (a video mixer) where the K stands for knowledge (as in knowledge mixer).
How does it work?
The speaker selects media (pictures, videos, texts and sounds) on the computer and sets up a library of several inputs ready to diffuse – by a simple drag-and-drop - to a wide range of screens: local and personal devices, each being able to receive its own content.
The speaker gets a closer position towards the public and a global view on the area of diffusion.
K-jing has been experimented during a few exhibitions and got a very positive feedback by the end users.
This prototype will be updated for the opening of the Confluences Museum in 2014.
It has been tested by la Casemate - Grenoble, during the exhibition XYZT - Adrien Mondot.
