Networked exhibition technology for an entire interactive museum
On behalf of Ars Electronica Solutions, who conceived and planned the exhibition, Garamantis designed a software system for Deutsches Spionagemuseum Berlin (German Spy Museum) that can feed content to 200 (mostly) interactive screens and several single installations, like a large display-wall that plays more than 150 videos simultaneously (“Spy Watch”), an encryption/decoding-device, as well as the operating panel for a laser game.
With the help of the CMS, the museum’s staff members can easily organize all the content on every single screen, and even the allocation of installations to any monitor and their functional testing can be managed via CMS. A synch-system ensures that only new or altered content is transferred to the museum`s single-screen installations. All the installations remain fully functional even in the event of a network or CMS breakdown.
