Hello, I posted a similar project earlier but the scope changed so I'm re-posting from scratch.
Platform: Mac OS (current).
What; HTML menu
We are creating an interactive experience where users can use a touch screen to access information.
There are 18 videos, and 3 apps that they will need to use to select what they want to watch, or which app to run. The html menu should be created in a way that there are 2 tabs (Tab 1- Videos - Tab 2 - Apps)
Here are the behaviors and appearance for each tab:
Design is simple. Mainly over white, with a possible graphic element.
Main Header (title)
And then the videos will be segmented by category - which will also be a header.
Thumbnails with file name underneath
When you click on the center of the thumbnail, video goes full screen.
When video is done playing, we bounce back to the main menu page, highlight the video that was just watched. If user wants to exit out of the video, they can do so by clicking the top left red button (built in the OS already).
Files will be added over time, so we are looking to do an "eternal scroll" where users can just scroll down.
And may need to edit time and time again..so this will have to be authored so that it can be added to down the road.
Tab 2: Apps:
These will also be displayed with a title and thumbnail. But clicking on the thumbnail will launch an app. The app will launch and be full screen. The app is proprietary to the company, self-contained and installed on the computer. Once the user is done with the app, they will exit out (hit escape or the red button on the left) and they will land back on the HTML page with the app just visited highlighted in red.
Finally, we'd love to have a way to launch an mp4 or mov video upon startup of the computer. (computer will shut down every night). The video would serve as a screen saver, and go away upon someone clicking on the screen (anywhere). When the video goes away, the user should see the full page HTML menu screen already on. (This may be something we can do within the native screen saver app but thought I'd throw this out as something that may happen).
