Submission + - on demand video + cms + interactive for museum 1

remolacha writes: I've been given the task of tech chief for a biggish art museum (1300 m2, or about 13,000 sq ft) in Spain. The museum's designers want 20 "terminals" that will offer on-demand video and interactive content. the terminals' content will change with the exhibits. many will have touchscreens, more interesting forms of input are planned as well (floor sensors, big buttons).

It's all on one floor, and the floors are raised, so I can run cabling and set up floor ethernet jacks. max cable run is 60m / 190ft. The museum may expand to 4x it's projected size once open by comandeering other floors in the building.

To give an idea of where the designers heads are, they were talking about a massive dvd changer in a closet somewhere.

I am thinking an intranet running a webserver with a CMS and flash media server, terminals running firefox in kiosk mode. I'd love to do everything on linux. does anyone have experience with a setup like this, better ideas, or advice?
