Use a Samsung Gear VR headset or a VR-capable smartphone for a 360-degree view of how The King’s Academy employs digital signage and live-streamed video feeds to enhance the experience for everyone involved in productions at the private school’s performing arts auditorium.

The K-12 faith-based private school in West Palm Beach, Florida, uses Samsung’s Smart Signage system-on-chip (SoC) digital signage displays, driven by MagicInfo content management software, to provide screens tuned to a pair of very specific and unique needs:

  • Parents who need to step out of the seating area with a fussy baby, or to take an important phone call, can still see what’s happening on stage on a live-streamed screen in the lobby.
  • Performers and stagehands behind the curtains can monitor performances and hit time cues easily by watching those live-streamed feeds on strategically-placed backstage screens.

The school enlisted United Data Technologies to design and install a Samsung-driven end-to-end display and signage solution. This immersive video, shot with a 360 degree-capable camera, gives viewers a complete view of how this part of the project was pulled together and how it’s being used.
