Leading provider of multimedia content and technology solutions, Imagineear, has provided its MediaPacker™ devices to the National Museum in Warsaw.

News of the prestigious contract follows the company’s recent announcement of a similar deal with Poland’s Museum of King Jan III’s Palace at Wilanów.

The National Museum of Warsaw will use the handheld devices to host its permanent collection visitors’ tour. The tour is available in six languages. The museum also intends to use the MediaPackers™ to guide visitors around temporary exhibitions.

Imagineear’s MediaPacker™ devices have been designed as a cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for museums and other institutions and attractions.

Accessible technology gives clients full and intuitive control over their content. The full-colour player with numeric keypad delivers audio, video and images. It also offers the option to display slideshows, video sync and text. What’s more, it holds a virtually unlimited number of languages making it ideal for international audiences. Tours can as many stops as required and can be navigated by number, map or by automated triggering.

The MediaPacker™ platform is supplied complete with 10-unit modular chargers, headphones, data capture, storage and analysis capability and the Reptor™ upload and download software suite, as standard.

The National Museum of Warsaw opened in 1862 as a Museum of Fine Arts. It is one of the oldest museums in Poland. Since then, it has diversified to showcase around 830,000 works of art and design. The objects originate from both Poland and further afield, dating from ancient times to the present day. These include paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, coins, as well as utilitarian objects.

‘The National Museum chose our MediaPacker™ devices because not only does it fit their needs but it was also selected because our service was considered to be the best,’ commented Ziv Kushnir, a Founder, and Commercial Director at Imagineear.
