Day of an eObjx Event

Any event starts long before the day of and this is also true of an eObjx Event.  You will have ordered and paid for the number of show hours you wish at your event.  You may have even scheduled it to include a Livestream by scheduling the event with YouTube.

eObjx makes the service available to you the day of your event.  This could be many hours in advance of the start of the actual event.

During these hours you can do things like preload content.  Once the event has started you can inform your guests of the URL for them to start adding content  which may continue even beyond the end of the last eObjx show.

At some point you decide to begin the showing of eObjx.  Then, and only then, does the clock start on the hours of service you purchased.

When budgeting for an eObjx event, only purchase the actual hours you’ll need for the showing.  You do not need to purchase hours to cover preloading or time during the event prior to playback or time after the event.  An eObjx will be taken down within 24 hours post your event.

Not another slideshow

Sometimes, all you really need is a simple slideshow.  You know, images, full size, displayed one after the other.

The challenge becomes how to create it.  Most folks gravitate to PowerPoint, Keynote and other presentation builders, but that is a lot of painful slide by slide work.

With eObjx there is no need to create, nor any need for endless hours of effort either prior to the event or during.   eObjx will do it all, automatically.  All you do is tell eObjx when by hitting PLAY.

Simply ADD whatever you’d like, whenever you’d like, even during the event and/or playback and eObjx will automatically incorporate the new content and/or rework the old into the playback.  To make it even more fun, allow your guests to do the same.

There is no need for a slideshow to be the same every time it is played.  eObjx insures a new experience each time is is played.

Arc of the Event

An event may last for several hours.  As such, it has a beginning a middle and an end.  Planning the trajectory or arc of the event for your media will greatly contribute to the success of the event.

Though it is possible to pre-load all your content and let eObjx remix it through the night, why not consider staging when, how much and what content you should introduce into the mix during the event.

This, in conjunction with your guests contributions, can dramatically offer relevancy and excitement throughout the entire duration of the event.

eObjx will do the mix, you add the content fire and let the event ignite.

Multi-Screen Everywhere at your Event

eObjx is great projected at stadium size at an event, but why not consider eObjx everywhere on smaller, interactive multi-screens everywhere at your event.  Or both!

Simple technologies like Chromecast can easily enable all Chromecast enabled TVs throughout your event.  Or if you wish the projections to be synchronized alternative AV solutions may be utilized.

Entertainment as a Service

The world is abuzz with Software as a Service (SaaS) which eObjx is, but better described as Entertainment as a Service (EaaS).  An entertainment that you turn on at the beginning of your event and leave running until the event is concluded.

During that time eObjx is continually creating new entertainments from the content supplied by you and your guests/attendees while completely unattended – intelligently and automatically.

QR Codes – the image does it all

QR codes have been around for a very long time, but never gained mass acceptance.  The primary reason for that is that you needed dedicated apps/readers on your devices.

All that changes with Apple IOS 11.  The only app you need comes with your phone – the camera app.  Just take a picture of the QR code and you’ll be directly taken to the URL.

Now you can make it even easier for your guests/attendees to participate in an eObjx.  Just print out the QR code in the handouts, splash them on the walls, even project them.

Your QR code will be automatically supplied for every eObjx event.


YouTube Livestreams in your eObjx

eObjx can now play a YouTube Livestream as a peer object integrated into the playback of: images, gifs and videos.  You can broadcast from your event – with webcam, video cam or even mobile phone via YouTube with someone roaming the event.

In fact, you could have several Livestreams playing one at a time or concurrently.  This opens the door to integrating simultaneous events or perspectives happening at the same time.

As with any object in an eObjx, you can also double-click and go full screen with your Livestream and then switch back to a playback.

Livestreaming could not be easier.  When you setup your eObjx event, also set up the YouTube Livestream event and then supply the URL to eObjx.  That’s it.  We do the rest.

Eye Candy

eObjx continues to evolve with ever changing eye candy.  Today we are introducing two new effects: Ken Burns and Fades .  A Ken Burns effect takes an image and continuously zooms in on it from various aspects, thus adding life to an other still image.  Fades affect how images appear and disappear.  Both effects are synchronized with the variable length media contained in the eObjx.

It is always important to remember that an eObjx event is solely dependent upon the content added – that means YOU.  Let it be whatever you wish it to be.  eObjx will react and evolve.




Not A Photo Booth. Not A Social Wall. What Is eObjx?

It has been really interesting developing and introducing eObjx to the world. There’s nothing really quite like it to compare it to.

How exactly do you describe new event technology when it isn’t an application, doesn’t require any downloads, and no sign-ins are necessary?! A potential reseller overseas recently asked us – “How does it really work?” – clearly indicating that he isn’t comfortable in a non-app world. Oh, what to do with something totally new.

In today’s world, most customers – event planners and event producers in our case – are most comfortable with what they already know. We’ve had a myriad of demos with event agencies and party planners and nearly all have said the same thing – “You’re right, this is new” and “I haven’t seen anything like it.” Of course they too are stumped with what words to use to describe it.

So here’s our best shot – eObjx is an instant and automatic mixed media entertainment lifeform  created by your event’s videos and photos.

All we know is … It isn’t a photo booth. It isn’t a social wall.

There, how’d we do? If you’ve got a better way to explain it, we’re all ears.

What’s the entertainment?

With every event the entertainment ranks high in consideration.  The band, the DJ, the magician, etc.  But the best entertainment is already there – you and your guests.  Give them the power to do so immediately with what’s in their hands and eObjx.

As soon as they take a photo or create a video it will be up for all to enjoy and likely encourage others to join and create the event mashup of their lives.

Everyone is the entertainment in an eObjx.
