Museums are increasingly using digital video presentation to engage with visitors. Moving away from traditional VHS and DVD delivery, new dedicated digital media players offer an extremely low cost, yet highly reliable option for all types of looping content.
Digital View – a specialist in the provision of these solid state digital media players – has even added a range of low cost interactive options to its range of ViewStream™ & VideoFlyer™ digital presentation tools. Everything a museum needs; from buttons, levers and motion sensors, to touch screens, RS-232 and full AMX / Crestron connectivity. Interactivity that is simple to program, simple to integrate and fast-to-the-touch – ensuring the best visitor experience.`
Digital View’s newly released free-to-download content management software DV Studio 2 makes the creation of digital presentations and interactive exhibits even easier. DV Studio 2 enables the simple creation of playlists (much like Apple’s iTunes) from a standard PC or Apple MAC. Simply drag and drop your content in the playlist, set up any interactive trigger commands and copy it all across to the memory card within the media player. A scheduling tool allows for content playback to be timed and a data log tool delivers a field record of all content playback and track selections. This makes is possible to see how popular elements of exhibitions are with visitors.
Whether working in standard or high definition – Digital View’s ViewStream™ media players can be used to drive any LCD, Plasma or Projector systems – either individually or synchronized together in a video wall. Rugged and silent the players will work constantly 24/7, for over 100,000 hours in the most demanding of installations.
