Blackdove has introduced a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for incorporating digital art into custom integration projects. Blackdove’s system encompasses a hardware media player, purpose-built displays, a control and management app and a digital artwork subscription service. Blackdove enables instantaneous delivery of any work of digital art to any display in the world with NFT blockchain registration and end-to-end encryption.
Blackdove repositions displays as digital art installations. Large screens and video walls become a central design element with the implementation of Blackdove. Additionally, Blackdove has established partnerships with Crestron, Savant and Control4.
Blackdove’s curatorial team supplies the art expertise required for any application. Once a dealer specifies Blackdove into a project, Blackdove’s art advisors can work directly with the client, design partners or client representative to select the right digital art at no additional cost to the dealer or client.
The Blackdove Art Server allows any display to connect to the Blackdove digital art gallery. This device can be installed in a rack or behind a screen and can connect to the Blackdove cloud via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. The Art Server features a single 4K 60Hz HDMI output and an SSD Drive for locally caching client art collections. For large-scale applications, Blackdove can create customized Art Servers with resolutions up to 26K. The Blackdove Art Server comes pre-loaded with Blackdove software.
Customers seeking a purpose-built display for digital artwork may instead opt for a Blackdove Digital Canvas, a high-definition commercial display screen with an integrated Blackdove Art Server. Available in an array of sizes up to 98 inches, each Blackdove Digital Canvas is designed for continuous operation and can hang in either portrait or landscape orientation.
The company says installing either a Blackdove Art Server or Digital Canvas typically takes 15 minutes or less. Blackdove’s remote integration team is available to log in and support the on-site dealer to complete the system configuration. Customers manage and control their collections through Blackdove’s web portal and app (available for iOS and Android) or via integration with the home’s Crestron, Control4 or Savant control system.
The Blackdove subscription library rotates continually as new artists and artworks are added. Blackdove subscribers can purchase NFTs granting them the permanent right to display their favorite pieces. Limited edition pieces and unique commissions are also available for purchase as NFTs. Customers can also upload privately owned digital artwork to Blackdove, taking advantage of the advanced management system for their entire collection.
Blackdove subscriptions start at $99 a month.
