Controlling the content on the screen

You can let your customers control the screen from a companion iPad set-up next to the screen or by scanning a QR code on the screen bringing them to an interactive mobile interface on their own smartphone:

1. iPad interface

Vyking can create a branded interface for you which will allow you your customers to interact with each 3D model and toggle through them to change the 3D model on the screen.

Please note that your iPad needs to be connected to the same Wifi network.
