Museums are wondrous places where people of all ages can learn about art, history, science and nature. According to the Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS), there are an estimated total of 17,500 museums in the U.S. alone. Each and every one of those institutions uses AV technology to bring life and interest to their exhibits with audio excerpts, video clips and 3D projection technology.
Vivid content is key to capturing the attention and imagination of the approximately 2.3 million visitors per day at American museums. AV technology plays a large part in bringing the subject matter to life, and presenting the information in modern, multimedia formats. Recent AV advancements in museum applications include targeted audio using precision loudspeakers, 3D video presentations and motion sensor digital signage.
