Utilizing NFTs to streamline digital art on exhibitrions
3space Art employs Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to facilitate the acquisition of artwork, establish ownership, and administer content throughout exhibitions. These NFTs are acquired through the subscription of NFT creators and collectors. Through this process, they can seamlessly link their Web3 wallets to execute a smart contract, thereby enabling the transfer of their artwork to our advanced Content Management System (CMS) for prominent presentation within the exhibition context.
Content Management Systems (CMS) are strategically employed to cater to content types intricately associated with NFTs. Leveraging metadata, including the artist's identity, detailed descriptions, pertinent images or media files, and the distinctive blockchain token address, the inherent data of the NFTs is extracted. This data is temporarily stored on a cloud server before integrating into the designated playlist. Concurrently, the content undergoes uploading onto the Video-On-Demand (VOD) transcoder, thereby facilitating retrieval and display of the content across our website and diverse display devices.
A VOD Transcoder will manage digital art showcasing. These cloud-based media conversion devices convert original media files into various image qualities for various devices, such as mobile devices or electronic displays, to make them compatible. It can handle high-quality video conversion tasks and create high-quality video output for all major devices through H.264/AAC output codec support.
VOD may change video file format or convert images to fit the multi-screen. Such a transcoding task requires relatively high-performance computing power. The higher the video quality and the increase in types of images to convert, means higher server resources are required. Files will be hosted on IPFS or on some occasions private cloud servers, depending on the environment.
Digital art will be projected on electronic devices such as signages, kiosks, digital frames, and high-definition displays. Images or other content from an external storage device will use Content Playback mode.
Watermarking for image content allows the creator or service operator to embed unique and imperceptible copyright information in the content as it plays. Digital art showcasing in exhibits organized by 3space will be able to implement an invisible QR code of the NFT owner.
During an exhibition or an event, the corresponding NFTs will be locked into a smart contract created explicitly for the occasion. The contract will be timelocked so that the ownership cannot be transferred until the end of the exhibition/event. For more details, go to Art Pool.
