Vintage TV Wall Raspberry Pi Edition
Vintage TV Wall v3 – Raspberry Pi, a set on Flickr.
The Vintage TV Wall sure seems to have a life of its own. Having moved from the Art Gallery of Alberta to the Edmonton International airport, it is now exhibited in the Marshall McLuhan House in Highlands (Edmonton). To adapt it for long-term installation, I used Raspberry Pi computers to playback the three different video loops. They startup automatically when powered on, and playback continuously, with audio. A great use of the Raspberry Pi, at $25 each, much more reliable than DVD players!
I bought the materials for the project from Newark/Element 14 (Canada), and the service was actually remarkable! The three Pis, cases, cables and power supplies arrived at my door within about 2 days. Awesome!
