MorphOS: Commercial use of a Hollywood program as an interactive terminal
Press release: Christoph and Sébastien Poelzl, two nice representatives of RMS-Communications, have made a project of interactive terminal based on Hollywood under MorphOS. It consists of a 22" touch-screen using the USB stack Poseidon under MorphOS installed on a 1,5 GHz Mac mini.

This device is in commercial service at the private hospital Bois-Cerf in Lausanne/Switzerland (Photos: 1, 2, 3, 4).

The interactive device is a sign post for patients and visitors, showing them their way through the building.

This interactive terminal project ist part of a much more important framework which will have to implement touch-sensitive screens which can go upto 42" and even beyond. They can be proposed on various markets and could be placed in luxury hotels, tourist information offices and in other private or public areas.

In parallel RMS-Communications has commissioned and collaborated with Andreas Falkenhahn of Airsoft Softwair to develop Hollywood applications on iPad.

Hollywood has recently been ported to the iPad (ARM architecture) by order of a commercial customer who needs to use it on tablet devices in clinics and hotels ( reported). A small demo video of Hollywood running on iPad has been uploaded to YouTube. Unfortunately, it will most likely not be possible to integrate iPad support into Hollywood's cross-compiler because of several technical and legal restrictions that iPad apps are subjected to. For commercial customers, however, several solutions to get their Hollywood projects converted into iPad apps can be offered.

Furthermore that's not all, as Christoph Poelzl of RMS-Communications works in close collaboration with Andreas Falkenhahn, Hollywood Designer's developer, thus having the privilege of betatesting his products. At Alchimie 111111 in France he was allowed to show the next version of Hollywood Designer 3.1.
