To meet visitor expectations in a rapidly changing digital world, museums of all kinds are embracing display technologies which are reimagining the museum experience and providing curators with creative new approaches for engaging audiences in thoughtful and exciting ways.
Museums offer the ideal environment for impressive, large-scale installations that draw attention, captivate visitors and create unique learning experiences. Video display canvases and expansive interactive media walls provide a compelling platform for dynamic simulations and presentations that absorb audiences and activate the senses.
In museum spaces, immersive display solutions take visitors on journeys exploring worlds of science, art, history and culture, inspiring imagination and discovery. Displays featuring adaptable designs seamlessly blend with physical and scenic elements to craft deeply engaging exhibits that bring concepts to life.
Storytelling is a key part of the museum experience that can be enhanced with digital interactive tools, which empower visitors to engage with narratives on deeper levels. Touch screen displays and multi-touch video walls encourage more active participation with exhibits, forging stronger cognitive and emotional connections.
To meet the demands of public museum venues, video walls and displays require designs that protect equipment and ensure performance reliability over long time periods. Proprietary coating LCD and LED technologies—such as Planar® ERO™ (Extended Ruggedness and Optics™) deliver durability in high-traffic environments. Solutions with off-boards electronics and built-in redundancies guarantee uninterrupted operation and minimal downtime.
Large video walls welcome guests and set the tone for wonder and exploration while also providing guidance on how to optimize the museum experience. Stunning LED and interactive video wall technologies offer educational value and make information more tangible, enhancing presentations and lectures.
