QC as Meeting Presentation System - Multitouch Portfolio viewer
I was wondering if anyone has come across software that can be used during meetings to make an impactful presentation for viewing various media types. A design company wants to be able to showcase the designer's latest work to the client during a meeting. They currently use things like cooliris 3d wall to display their work and make an impactful presentation to the client.
They have asked me to research new ways of doing this. One way would be to do a multitouch table where you could point the app to a folder full of JPG, PDF, M4V, or url links. It would display all of these items on a multitouch interactive table and you could use all of the usual gestures to move the objects around or zoom in on a pdf to read the text up close. You could possibly even use an embeded webkit window to open webpages and show additional content.
I've looked around at Microsoft Surface, some Windows 7 multitouch, and even open projects like Touchkit which let you write your own software in xcode. I still think this would be easiest to do in Quartz Composer because you can natively display all of those filetypes pretty easily. I've seen patches on these forums to do the multitouch.
Multitouch is not really new anymore, and the tools to do it have been around for a while now. So, does software like this already exist? Does it make sense that Quartz could be the easiest way to pull this off?
Does anyone have links to other interesting ways of displaying and navigating various types media on a large screen?
The main goal is to avoid having to alt-tab in and out of screens while giving the demonstrations, just one clean solid interface to view any type of media file.
Thanks for your suggestions!
