International audio-visual company, Electrosonic, has provided a suite of AV solutions to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute to help visitors understand the function of the U.S. Senate.
Experts in audio-visual engineering, integration and programming, Electrosonic was selected by general contractor Lee Kennedy Co. to create an interactive and dynamic guest experience.
750 Google Nexus tablets with interactive software by Control Group, allow users to select their favourite political party, vote, take photos and ‘become’ a senator in the U.S. Senate chamber.
Visitors begin their journey with a short film in the Orientation Theatre where three projectors display edge-blended content on a curved screen. Elsewhere, dynamic content depicts current events while projector blends focus on topics such as “What is the Senate?” and “How a Bill Becomes a Law.”
At the centre of institute is a unique Senate Immersion Module within a full-scale model of the U.S. Senate chamber. The space features three videowalls and a full sound system, plus a number of cameras that broadcast simulations to the classrooms. An extensive video matrix system allows any source to be switched to any room.
Electrosonic was founded in 1964 and has won numerous awards across a range of disciplines including “Service Company of the Year”, “Systems Company of the Year”, “Business Installation of the Year” and “Consumer Installation of the Year”.
