Rundle Lantern Simulator

The result is a content-rich portal that services PCA’s national and statebased divisions, highlighting the raft of information PCA produces and distributes for its advocacy role in championing the interests of the property sector.

The Rundle Lantern Simulator is the next step in the Adelaide City Council’s (ACC) innovative plan to enliven the city centre and create a community masterpiece of digital urban art. makes use of Web 2.0 concepts and technologies in the form of Blogs, YouTube videos, Google maps, Micro-site engine and Podcasts, ensuring a rich and informative web experience. Thousands of articles, submissions and multimedia elements are maintained using Helium®, Fusion’s .NET based Content Management System. Within the portal, targeted third party advertising provides revenue generation for the Council, as well as alerting visitors to sector-relevant services, products and events.

Fusion have developed a rich-media web application that allows people to upload and preview how their video content would be represented if delivered on the Rundle Lantern. The first use of the simulator was La Lumiere, a Fringe event that brought together a select group of 20 South Australian digital artists to create content that was showcased on the Lantern throughout the duration of the Fringe Festival. The simulator now provides a globally accessible online gallery of current and archived content that can be viewed by

anyone in the world. The next use of the simulator will consider a younger audience for this year’s Come Out 09 Australian Festival for Young People. All future events planned by the Adelaide City Council will use the simulator for the testing and submission of content from the community.
