Ideas of Ventuz
Another busy day….but enough time to have a look at Ventuz. They have a neat piece of model/animation building software that looks a bit like Everest/Viz. However, it uses DirectX so that it can run on a cheap PC. Could be good for some presentations. Might even try to get it working with a football xml feed. Looks as thought it might work quite easily. Quite complex so another week or two to get anything sensible out of it. It suports shaders, bum maps and all the other goodies in DirectX 9. Some nice pics. It will render bigger than HD, over several screens – perhaps we could use it on the video wall? Should look to see if we can licence a cheap desktop version, attach to the xml, this should get a few SkySports viewers. Then we just have to stream ad’s through to make some revenue. Perhaps they might pay for the service with a mobile call. Could we add some extra data, via Opta, that could be used to personalise the stats available. Live feed of results etc. Later could add live stream of goals or highlights. Lets put a page up on happytuesdays sportConsole zeeScore??( edit ..no already taken.) See how many hits we could get. Need to get a link from Sky or Beeb. Perhaps ProActive could help somehow. We could extend it to their sports. Perhaps stream their video as a test. Enough for now.
