As Egyptian officials gathered together one of the greatest collections of artifacts ever discovered and prepared to show it to the world, they knew that enhancing these priceless items with modern technology would create a remarkable and immersive experience. For the multimedia aspects of the exhibition, event organizers chose Barco, renowned around the world for their innovative projectors and display systems. The decision to choose Barco as the Preferred Technology Partner aligns with the commitment of exhibition organizers to showcase each piece with quality and excellence.
In partnership with SC Media Canada, Barco’s value added distributor along with Design Electronics, the integrator on the project, and IMG, the exhibition organizer, event creators selected a projection platform that would greatly enhance the end-user experience. The F-series will be used to highlight over 150 artifacts on display, 60 of which have never left Egypt before.
“Our assigned scope of work was to deliver a ‘remarkable experience’”, said Khalil Williams, General Manager of Design Electronics. “We chose Barco projectors, not only based on their outstanding performance and reliability, but also on our working relationship them and their high level of support. Part of creating an immersive environment for museum guests, requires life like image quality and mission critical function to ensure there is no disruption to the experience. Barco is our go to partner on creative projects like this, whenever there is a need to successfully meet these demands.”
Williams was looking for a projection technology that would both deliver superior results, but also be versatile and sturdy, as the exhibit will travel to ten cities globally before the artifacts return to their final destination in Cairo, Egypt. The F-series was created for these kinds of scenarios, and also has flexibility features that make it the ideal choice.
“It’s a true honor to be chosen as the Preferred Technology Partner for this incredibly important installation,” explains Wouter Bonte, Strategic Marketing Director for ProAV & Events at Barco. “We wanted the presentation to be completely unrestrained in its ability to reflect the awe associated with these artifacts and enhance end-user experience. As such, we hand-picked three different F-Series projectors for the specific attributes they offer.”
