Adaptable, personalizable and multi-user museum exhibits

Adaptable, personalizable and multi-user museum exhibits

A complete solution to enhance visitor experiences within Cultural Heritage Institutions (CHIs), by augmenting two dimensional paintings.

A complete solution to enhance visitor experiences within Cultural Heritage Institutions (CHIs), by augmenting two dimensional paintings. The complete solution integrates:

a) an augmented digital exhibit capable of representing two dimensional artifacts

b) a museum information kiosk that allows browsing collections, way finding and information retrieval

c) applications for interactive surfaces within a museum’s main and leisure spaces

 

The augmented digital exhibit enhances physical and digital artefacts towards a personalized user experience, delivering content through various devices (e.g., tablets, mobile phones) and supporting alternative modalities. In more details, visitors can receive personalized information according to their position in front of an exhibition wall, which may comprise digital or physical 2D exhibits. Furthermore, users can receive personalized information for the exhibit (e.g., description, video, high-resolution images, etc.) by digital signs placed next to the exhibit. Portable tablets, rented or carried by visitors can also be employed as information displays.

Visitors’ experience can be further enhanced by additional applications deployed in interactive surfaces placed at the museum’s leisure spaces.
