Cambridge Filmworks have teamed up with computer technology superstars Raspberry Pi to create an inspiring new aerial screensaver for their PIXEL technology.
The Cambridge theme pack for PIXEL takes the viewer on a birds-eye tour of the city, across hidden college gardens and back streets to some of Cambridge’s most iconic views.
Raspberry Pi is based in Cambridge and has a long history with the city. Raspberry Pi was founded with the aim of increasing the number of applicants to study computer science at the University of Cambridge. The processor core which powers the Raspberry Pi was developed in the city by ARM, the hugely successful microprocessor company which itself grew out of Acorn, one of the original pioneers of the 1980s home computer revolution, and another Cambridge success story. The original VideoCore graphics processor was designed by staff at Cambridge Consultants, one of the first technical consultancy firms in the UK. They spun out a company called Alphamosaic to sell VideoCore; that company was subsequently acquired by Broadcom, and it was the engineers at Broadcom’s Cambridge office who updated and improved it to make the version which provides the multimedia for Raspberry Pi.
