The interactive display case is a product innovation suitable for trade fairs, museums and point-of-sale
This product combines multi-touch technology, interactive screens and means of immediate interaction with the object/product on display. The user controls the object and various screens by touching the display case’s crystal clear multi-touch glass surface, and the focus is always on the object or product itself.
The most remarkable and important feature of every Garamantis display case is the clear, unobstructed view on the object it provides, made possible by the multi-touch glass designed especially for this novelty. The interactive display case is constructed to always keep the object in the foreground, in front of the monitors with additional information.
It is exactly this feature from which you will benefit and that makes it superior to any other digital display case, where the object is placed behind a “transparent” monitor – in fact, in those the object always appears slightly blurred, as the semi-transparent monitors used in them have a light transmission of only 15 % max.
Movement of the object inside the case is achieved by means of a powerful and noiseless turntable that reacts to intuitive touch-gestures on the multi-touch glass surface without delay. In addition, an LED light on the turntable visualizes the user’s control (e.g. by indicating “left” or “right”, depending on the direction the user’s hand moves in).
The lighting inside the display case consists of several dynamic spotlights that change in accordance to the object’s actual position. They can point out interesting details and create a harmonious lighting concept, together with the monitors.
The large high-resolution background monitor serves to embed the object into its “natural environment”. The backdrop rotates along with the turntable and thus creates an atmospheric 360°-setting.
Depending on the viewing angle an additional smaller screen shows morde detailled information or videos about the illuminated parts of the object. By touching a "button" on the surface the user is able to change the language of the display case. The operator himself manages all the digital content of the display case via the Garamantis CMS.
Audio explanations or background music can either be played with the display case’s built-in speaker system or received via smartphone: if the user scans the QR code printed on the display case he immediately gets the matching audio content, in synch with the video footage and in his own language.
All this is just a selection from Garamantis’ interactive display case’s possible configurations. We also can integrate our multi touch controlled turntable technology into existing museum display cases or even into store windows. Just let us know your ideas for your display case’s utilization, and we will get back to you with suggestions about configurations that meet your needs!

The interactive display case is an innovative product designed for exhibitions, trade fairs, museums, and for stores as well. This item, too, employs multi-touch technology paired with interactive screens that allow immediate interaction with the product on display.

Mit Multitouch- und interaktiver Technologie das Einkaufserlebnis steigern
Our product, an intelligent control unit, is technically complex and requires intensive explanation. In Garamantis’ interactive display case, we were able to put it on view in an attractive fashion and at the same time comprehensively explain all its functions to the viewer. The display case was a high-quality experience for our visitors. It enjoyed a lot of attention, and many people interacted with it.Dr. Friederich Kupzog, Senior Scientist at Austrian Institute of Technology
Our latest product innovation, the interactive watch showcase, invites customers to a playful “hands-on interaction” with the watch!
By swiping across the showcase’s clear multi-touch glass surface, the customer turns the watch on a barely noticeable turntable. A movable high-resolution 360° panoramic backdrop serves to embed the watch into the desired brand environment.
This demo application with a Porsche model car shows the possible usage in an automobile museum. The model car rotates on the glass surface, controlled by touch-gestures on the display case’s glass pane. The user can scroll in text or additional information with touch‑gestures as well. The car rotates in front of a high-resolution backdrop and appears in varying lighting conditions.
An interactive showcase offers museums a number of advantages over a conventional museum showcase. The screens embed the exhibit in its original surroundings and give the visitor a great depth of additional information. The most important thing, however, is interactivity. The visitor can turn the exhibit and look at it from all sides, but it is still protected.
