Museums and planetariums
Passive audiences are a thing of the past. To be competitive, today's museums and planetariums are telling their story with complete, high-impact visual and immersive narratives.
The innovators are re-defining their place in society. Their role is to educate, and to do that they must engage their audiences at every level. The most successful venues are often also the most immersive. So curators and integrators are looking to combine rich content with bold, impressive storytelling.
The twin challenges for reaching the audience
On the one hand, museums and exhibitions are working to make their collections as immersive and interactive as possible. This requires a high degree of coordination between the story-tellers and integrators. It also requires a good understanding of the possibilities that enable them to tell those stories in engaging and practical ways. This could be interactive screens, projection, LED screens and show control software.
Barco's experience is in bringing high quality, reliable products that do all this while meeting the second important challenge for museums and planetariums: the need to offer long-lasting consistent performance for very long periods at a time. So museums can build appealing, immersive shows that also make sense in financial terms for the long-term.
