First deployed at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards in June, 2010, Cinimod’s tracking system was linked to an interactive video projection display.

At this awards event, RFID (radio frequency identification) technology was used to identify visitors on the two ‘networking pods’ during the evening’s proceedings. The tags used radio signals to send their identity to antenna receivers. Projections then highlight guests’ key professional characteristics.

The interactive projections displayed the projects of nearby shortlisted visitors. As they moved closer to the centre of the pod, their names rose high on the list. Once a visitor was determined to be closes to the centre of the pod, their project details and credentials appeared on the panoramic projection screens.
