Museums use digital signage to capture the imagination of the younger generation
Recognised for their historical artefacts, collections and exhibitions, and not their appeal to the younger generation, museums are adopting dynamic technology to appeal to this demographic and encourage them to discover history in a more modern way.
One of the most popular technologies being deployed is digital signage as it has the ability to engage, entertain and interact with visitors on an individual or mass scale.
Digital signage can be implemented in a number of ways within a museum venue and solutions such as Sedao Digital Signage offer customers the ability to use a single software platform to manage the many various applications.”
Applications for digital signage within the context of a museum can include:
Welcome message screens
Greeting visitors with an informative message using dynamic digital signage screens as they enter the museum door to eliminate disorder by providing directives on queues, facilities, pricing and opening hours; confusion on entry and path directions, and at the same time, information on upcoming events, special offers and merchandise sales.
Once inside, locating exhibitions of interest, amenities, stairs, lifts and exits is important to the visitor experience. Digital signage driven way finders provide interactive directions through a network of presentations and screen groups to satisfy the needs of visitors.
Exhibition video and images
Digital signage screens are used to display multiple types of media formats from images, rolling text, videos, web pages and scrolling RSS feeds enabling the writer to engage with visitors of differing demographics.
Sedao has digital signage technology that can integrate with collaborative technology to create a complete interactive learning experience for visitors. The solution enables users to activate QR Codes and manipulate physical triggers to display changing messages and content on digital signage screens.
Conference room booking
Museum facilities often include conference or meeting rooms for hire to local organisations. Room booking systems such as Sedao’s RoomXchange solution offers users the ability to book rooms through Microsoft Exchange or at the source, and when not in use integrate into the digital signage program to promote the museum's facilities.
As expectations of the younger generation drive future technological learning solutions, the implementation of a cost-effective solution for a museum is crucial. Sedao offers integrated digital signage solutions which are being continually adapted to ensure they capture the imagination of the younger generation.
