Esben will introduce the ideas and concepts behind the MODOS control solution. The MODOS solution is a room control solution for spaces with special needs. It connects and controls all room hardware combined with a cloud service which makes the system easy to update and service remotely. In MODOS we work close together with musicians and photographers in order to give our customers the best possible content. We respect digital art and celebrate content as we believe that no system is better than its content. In the presentation he will talk from different scientific perspectives following the axiom: “Design has now scale”. The presentation will take a practical point of departure in the MODOS Birth Room and discuss the solution from architectural, industrial and technological domains.
