ArtHelsinki + Moving image + NIIO



Brand New Moving Image Program

This Fall, ArtHelsinki in collaboration with Moving Image co-founders and directors Murat Orozobekov and Edward Winkleman, launched a special video and film program. Galleries were invited to submit up to 3 "moving image" works with those selected presented at the fair (Sept. 7-11, 2016).

We were thrilled to have been selected by Moving Image's Winkleman and Orozobekov as the platform of choice for supporting open call submissions and for powering the moving image portion of the ArtHelsinki fair.  Learn more about how Niio supported this entire process.


Professional Tools: The Submission Process

Cobbled Together Solution Supporting an open call for for moving image artwork comes with many challenges.  Immense file sizes and multiple rich formats make open calls challenging for curators. Often times, they receive works in many different ways (USB, Gmail, Dropbox, FTP site) making the management and review of submissions a very time consuming, non-centralized process.

New Work Flow Niio supports all rich file formats (4K to VR) up to 250GB thus enabling all participant to submit to a single platform enabling curators and event organizers to manage submissions from one single location.  In addition, when ready they can view the submission as intended by the artist in the highest possible quality, thanks to Niio's 4K/60fps player.  Gone are the days of watching low res, compressed previews on non-intended platforms such as youtube or vimeo.


Professional Tools: Powering the Fair

New Work Flow For Display With all of the artwork submissions neatly organized in their Niio account, the Moving Image team was able to easily plan and organize the show which featured a synchronized 90-minute video installation across 3 screens.

The Moving Image team opted to use our Niio ArtConsole (4k/60fps player) which they plugged directly into their 3 projectors. With the works pre-downloaded to the Niio ArtConsoles, they didn't require Wifi for display.   During the show, the Moving Image team was able to control the manage the show via their Niio Remote Apps.
