How can you make the big screen an interactive screen? At CinemaCon , Barco and Audience Entertainment showed what an interactive, crowd-controlled experience can look like. To say that the crowd went completely bananas would be an exaggeration, but they waved, smiled, giggled, enjoyed themselves and – did indeed interact! Interaction between the audience and […]
