Project Description

How do take a static museum exhibit and breathe life into it to attract the interest of patrons?

If you’re the New York State Museum in Albany, NY, you employ Keywest Technology’s digital signage system in the lobby to playback video, graphics and text to promote the treasures inside.

The New York Museum offers science, education and art exhibits and programs to satisfy the appetites of young and old alike. Every year, the museum offers about 12 new exhibitions a year on a variety of topics.

Building interest in those exhibits among patron waiting to enter in the museum lobby are two large flat panel LCD monitors mounted to pylons as well as two projection screens.

The screens and monitors are used to playback promotional videos on the exhibits as well as schedules for upcoming exhibitions, museum hours and special programs. Using Keywest Technology media players makes it easy to playback all types of media, including video, graphics, text and animation, as well as making it simple to update what’s played back as museum needs and exhibits change.

Audio Video Corp. in Albany, NY did the design and integration of the digital signage system.
