Sure, the Grammy Museum has 16 projectors from Digital Projection, 30 LCDs, 29 HD video servers, 17 audio servers, and 21 interactive exhibits. But the one thing that stands out most is Crossroads, a 19-foot interactive table built by Design and Production to carry visitors through the musical landscape.

The table is made touch-sensitive by using a projected capacitive field generated by a thin foil under the table's surface. Images are projected onto the glass tabletop from Digital Projection iVision 20SX projectors. Each projector is fed two computer-generated images that are windowed with an RGB Spectrum DualView processor and aligned pixel by pixel to match the capacitive touch areas on the glass surface. Shadows from visitors' hands help navigate menus and touch points. Groovy.
