About the app

A user-friendly and bomb-proof tablet app designed for browsing videos at the BBC’s ‘Prehistoric Autopsy’ travelling exhibition.

Loaded with a full catalogue of video clips, the pre-configurable app powered several tablets so that each could display a pre-selected sub-set of those videos relating to a different section of the exhibition.

Being configurable, one or more spare tablets could replace or work alongside any of the other tablets (duplicating their content) if hardware problems or demand required it.


The Client

Working with a well established exhibition designer, we developed this bespoke video player app to a very tight deadline for the BBC’s travelling exhibition.

As one of the World’s leading broadcasters, the BBC brand demanded a very high quality, quick and robust app to display their videos.


Features

  • Pre-configurable app uses configuration settings saved on the tablet to display any range of the videos available
  • Custom ‘lock-down’, disabling standard tablet buttons to prevent users exiting the app
  • Secret access point and ‘cheat code’ give administrators access to reconfigure the tablets when necessary but prevent the general public from doing so

Devices

  • Android
  • iPhones/iPads
