We’ve been contacted by the largest abbey in Europe: Fontevraud l’Abbaye Royale to maintain their iBar program. Inside the main chapel, they have several touch screens displaying Fontevraud’s informations about Eleanor of Aquitaine, a Quiz, a Pacman retracing the story of a prisoner (the abbey was a prison after the French Revolution)…
The iBar program (PC only) works exactly like an iPad, a main screen launching applications. That was the first time that we worked for a museum, and so there were new kinds of problematics: how to know if a touch screen crashed and notify someone? How to get the errors for fixing them later? How to update the application on each touchscreen without human intervention on each machine? Thankfully the Adobe AIR platform could easily handle that. Let see how.
