Slideshow is a kiosk-style application for showing text, image, and video in a loop on monitors and projectors. It is not meant for situations where interactive control is required, but when the content is continuously looping for a long time. The content is updated through a Web GUI. The application is split into two packages, the backend and frontend. The backend is written in C++ and OpenGL. and the frontend uses Python. Currently. the frontend is very GNU/Linux specific and will not run on any other platform, but is meant to be as platform independent as possible, as long as it handles OpenGL.
Lifebox is a fast, lightweight, social photo and video gallery application that is designed to organize large amounts of media. It is able to differentiate between original and modified photos so you can upload your entire library to your server and highlight your favorite photos and videos into albums to share with friends. Lifebox also makes a distinction between albums and rolls, so a single photo or video can be part of multiple albums but only one roll. It extracts data from EXIF tags and XMP sidecars, making it compatible with the data from programs like Adobe Lightroom, Picassa, and iPhoto. Lifebox is social in that people and objects can be tagged, and they will receive an email when this happens. It supports authentication, so you can control who has access to what photo.

Players connected to projectors or big screens are able to display a variable schedule of Live TV or video, digital video like DivX, MPEG, Flash, MS PowerPoint, or HTML.

Media is imported, scheduled, and then distributed to a potentially massive number of players and screens.
