The original process for displaying media was to gather all the files prior to the judging event, downloading them on to a laptop. The operator then created a library of media that they would open on their laptop and drag on to the larger screen that they were connected to via HDMI cable. This was problematic for a few reasons.
1: This created a very clumsy lackluster experience for the judges, and was not an ideal way to present artistic work.
2: the operator didn’t have much control over things like zoom, volume, pause ect.
3: When the scores came in there was no “big reveal” moment which in turn lowered the production value of the judging process as a whole
