Magian Media Studio creates digital multimedia projects

Magian has a long history of working on projects that need a combination of creative and technical innovation. We create exciting, stimulating, energetic interactive and/or immersive multimedia experiences. Magian designs and produces the content and the software for multimedia at the same time as designing and specifying the technical infrastructure. We understand that the best educational and interpretive experiences respond to the diverse interests, backgrounds, and learning styles of visitors. We design for this by employing a wide range of media applications and content combined with vivid story-telling. Magian is also experienced at consulting to undertake to incorporate multimedia during the initial design process of a project. We provide design reports that detail the creative possibilities as well as production and hardware budget estimates that can be relied upon for implementation. We have a comprehensive in-house capability to carry out all aspects of multimedia design and production. Our software systems are specifically tailored to support the methodologies, needs and objectives of our projects. We value the rich range of fascinating projects on which we have been privileged to work.

  • MAGIAN DiAC Interactive Audio Control Software

    ...

  • DiAC provides an interactive, multichannel audio environment. Each individual audio channel responds automatically to visitors in the defined areas. The software continuously adjusts audio volumes, track selection and audio mix, ensuring a continuously fresh, subtly different audio environment tailored to the numbers of people in each of the zones. DiAC controls come from motion sensing video cameras, presence and motion sensors, touchscreens, pushbuttons, switches etc. Motion sensing video cameras provide an accurate and comprehensive method to locate visitors in the exhibit spaces allowing for the DiAC system to be programmed to respond to the visitors as they move through the exhibit spaces.

    DiAC can be configured to handle many different types of theatre and presentation activities. Show control features allow cueing of lighting controllers and other effects devices, all synchronised with video and other multimedia playback. Show control can be handled by DiAC alone, or may be shared between DiAC and other 3rd party hardware and software, especially when the project involves extensions to an existing installation.

    An iPhone app developed for control of the DiAC software can be customized for specific installations.

    DiAC提供广泛展馆的互动、多频道音频环境。各别频道在界定的区域中,依照游客的出现或是动向自动做反应。软件会持续的调整设定,如音频音量、音轨选择和拨放地点,以确保在各个区域中依照现场的人及数量量身订做清新却有些微不同的音频环境。DiAC是由运动传感摄像机、存在传感器、运动传感器、触摸屏幕、按钮、开关和其他来源所控制。运动传感摄像机的使用,能够准确及全面的提供游客在展馆中的位置,使DiAC系统得以依照游客在展馆中的移动而作反应。

    DiAC能够设定并应付许多不同形式的剧场和演说活动。剧场节目控制功能能够让灯控流程控制和其他特效装置与视频和其他多媒体播放同步。剧场节目控制能够单独使用DiAC控制,或者也可以用DiAC及其他第三方硬件和软件共同控制,尤其是涉及扩充已有装置的项目。

    美景开发控制DiAC软件的iPhone应用程序,也能够依照特定安装的设施来订制。

  • MAGIAN kDiAC Touchscreen Kiosk Audio Control
    The MAGIAN DiAC System controls interactive environments in multimedia exhibits. The MAGIAN kDiAC System is specifically for control of audio playback within a touchscreen kiosk.
    美景的DiAC系统控制多媒体展项的互动环境。美景的kDiAC系统特别针对控制触摸屏幕的音频播放。
    ...

  • Magian kDiAC provides precise control of audio for touchscreens and digital signage. A presence sensor at the screen is used to tell the system when a visitor is in front of the screen.

    The system responds automatically to the visitor. The system sets the audio volume to be at a low level when nobody is standing in front of the screen. When a visitor steps in front of the screen then the volume fades up to a comfortable level and stays at that level as long as the visitor remains in front of the screen. When the visitor walks away then the system fades the audio back down to the low level so that the screen is not left with audio at a high volume level that will disturb visitors in other areas of the exhibit.

    Importantly the kDiAC System also allows for the adjustment of the mix of the individual sounds in the program including the relative volume levels of background sound effects and/or music, the video soundtrack, button clicks and other sound sources within the program.

    The overall system monitors all of the presence sensors on the various screens as well as signals from other motion sensing video cameras in the exhibit spaces. The system adjusts the maximum level to be a comfortable level according to the overall numbers of visitors in the exhibit space.

    DiAC系统特别为了多频道的“音景”音频环境所设计,并为展览创造微妙与惊喜的氛围。美景kDiAC为DiAC的子系统,提供触摸屏幕和数字告示音频功能的控制。存在传感器安装在触摸屏幕或数字告示处,能够感测并通知系统有游客在屏幕的前方。

    系统程序设计成自动与游客做回应,尤其是控制音频的音量。在无游客站在屏幕前时,音量会调到最小声。而当有游客在屏幕前方,音量则会逐渐增大至舒适的音量,并在游客仍在屏幕前方时维持该音量。当游客离去,系统将会调整,将音量逐渐减小至最低音量,而不任由高音量的触摸屏幕影响了在展馆观赏的其他游客。

    重要的是,kDiAC系统也能够调节混合个别音频,包括相对的背景音效和∕或音乐的音量,视频背景音乐、按键音效及其他在程序里的音频资源。

    系统全面的监控各个屏幕的存在传感器,以及其他展览空间的摄像机运动传感器。系统会依照在展览空间的参观人数,而调节音频至舒适度的最高音量。
