In this workshop we will cover getting started with Raspberry Pi computers, with an emphasis on creating a super-simple HD video player for gallery environments. Filmmakers, video artists, VJs, and photographers are encouraged to attend, but anyone with a general curiosity about the Raspberry Pi and Linux is welcome to attend.
If you present video work using DVDs, a laptop, or a Mac mini in a gallery setting that has limited security or tech support then this is for you! You will create a 1080p HD video player on the Raspberry Pi that connects to a HDMI flatscreen monitor and, when booted, will immediately start playing your HD video content. No buttons, no software, no instruction sheets . . just plug it in and your videos start playing. We’ll provide all the materials, and you’ll leave the class with a functioning HD video player for you to keep.
