Shine Interactive created a software solution, combined with some hardware, to operate the buzzer system for SA’s Got Talent 2015 as well as the upcoming 2016 season of the popular television show for Rapid Blue.
The system reads the various button presses by the judging panel and would then, based on the rules of the game, relay the correct queues to the lighting system to trigger the various events. Once a buzzer is pressed, it would light up the corresponding X on the podium and front of house. With the golden buzzer, once the button is pushed, it would trigger the lighting effects for the auditorium.
The Success Story
The world’s biggest talent search returned to eTV for another scintillating, entertainment-packed season. Fresh, Shado Twala and Lalla Hirayama were once again our judges, and host Tats Nkonzo presented in his inimitable, infectious way. Although thousands auditioned in the nationwide search for talent, only 21 acts would go on to compete in the Live Semi Final rounds for the R500 000.00 prize. The show itself was a winner, dominating its time-slot with unprecedented viewership numbers. The nerve-wracking finale culminated with 3-year-old DJ Arch Jr taking home the prize, and at the same time becoming the youngest winner of the format worldwide.
