Interactive application for FullHD display in the premises of Pražská Energetika that displays current data not only from the client distribution network.
Description of the solution
The whole application uses flash technologies with several XML data sources. A specific feature is that this dedicated device does not have Internet access and the solution has two communication layers. One engine downloads external data from the internet, translates it using local IP addresses and outputs an XML feed, which is then used to display the data. In addition, the entire application is set up so that it does not depend on continual data deliveries. If one node is not operating, the application reverts to its last data state, so that error messages are not displayed.
The project supports the PRE brand in terms of relationships with employees and visitors to PRE client centres. In addition, useful topical information from the distribution network is displayed on screens, together with absolute electricity consumption records from the Prague distribution network. Also featured are images from the client centres, and information such as the weather forecast for the next few days, name days, and the actual time. Everything is displayed in FullHD on screens, which are not directly connected to the Internet. The application must be capable of operating externally on an independent basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The result is a FullHD flash application, which can operate independently. The addresses of data sources for it, including during special operations, can be changed and replicated for use in other premises of the client very easily. As well as live data, the application also displays video sequences; they simply need to be added to or removed from the XML sources. All input applications are governed only by the configuration and data sources. There is no need to restart or otherwise start the entire application afresh. It is therefore ready for use 24 hours a day,7 days a week.
