Technology at the Space
Cutting-edge technology meets artistry
Seamless 7’ x 14’ glass screens and ultra high-definition, rear-projection imaging systems are used to display photography with stunning clarity and saturation. The screens provide 4k resolution that exceeds the level offered by Blu-Ray. In addition to providing professional photographers a long sought after level of image quality, and displaying their art in the best light possible, it also allows for the display of thousands of images in a comparatively small location. The technology in use in the Digital Gallery was created expressly for the Photography Space. HD video shorts created to accompany the rotating exhibits and specialty programming for lunch hour visitors are other forms of digital image content being produced for viewing on the giant screens.
Microsoft Surface Tables
Microsoft Surface, the first commercially available surface computer from Microsoft Corp., turns an ordinary tabletop into a vibrant, interactive surface. The product provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural gestures, touch and physical objects. It is a natural user interface that allows people to interact with digital content the same way they have interacted with everyday items such as photos, paintbrushes and music their entire life: with their hands, with gestures and by putting real-world objects on the surface.
At the Annenberg Space for Photography, Microsoft Surface tables, each with a 30-inch display in a table-like form, will allow patrons to go deeper into the collection, see more of an exhibition and get hands-on, literally, with the artwork.
