Welcome Wall is a real-time projection-mapped wall built on the main reception floor of the client’s new headquarter building, where the clients can setup their play schedule and  manage the content projected on it through an online calendar.

1. When the clients set up their play schedule through the online calendar (CMS), all the data including uploaded images, customized messages, and colors used for replacing preset colors in videos will be packaged and synced with the React App.
2. The real-time running React App will communicate with TouchDesigner through websocket. When receive messages (data) from the app, TouchDesigner will process videos, update real-time information, match app content with selected videos, and output composition of the two to projectors.
