Summary Video thumbnails on a public screen, when scanned by a mobile device, trigger the video to be loaded and played on the mobile device.
Description Baldauf et al. developed a prototype called a Video Wall, where video thumbnails were shown in a grid on a public display. A mobile phone would be used to interact with the grid through the means of augmented reality. As the phone would be targeted at a specific video a corresponding thumbnail would appear on the phone’s screen. It would then be possible to watch the video on the phone providing a private view of the content available on the public display.
