Electrosonic, an international audio-visual company that creates tailored, state-of-the-art solutions for a wide range of markets including theme parks and museums, has provided their audio-visual systems expertise for three Thea award winning projects.
The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA)’s annual Thea Awards recognise creative excellence in theme parks, museums and other attractions.
Commenting on the awards, Bryan Hinckley, Entertainment Solutions Director at Electrosonic, said, “Electrosonic is honoured to have participated in three projects named as 2015 Thea Award winners. For a number of years we have contributed to multiple projects honoured by TEA as outstanding examples of their craft. That honour continues with the trio of Thea Award winners just cited for outstanding achievement in their categories. Our congratulations to the winners!”
National September 11 Memorial & Museum (Extraordinary Cultural Achievement)
Electrosonic provided the audio-visual systems for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which opened in the footprints of The World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The museum is primarily located about 70 feet (21 meters) below ground offering a unique and moving visitor experience.
“The audio visual media and interactives are powerfully dynamic but sensitively engaging, giving visitors many alternate ways to connect to the story.”
Harry Potter & The Escape from Gringotts (Outstanding Attraction)
Electrosonic provided the projection system design and integration for Universal for Harry Potter & The Escape from Gringotts, a new ride attraction at Universal Studios Florida.
“In the themed entertainment industry, this attraction seems clearly to be the new yardstick by which all will be measured … using what must be the largest screen images ever employed in a ride-through attraction, combined with extremely sharp-filmed imagery, [the ride] delivers the convincing illusion of absolute reality.”
The StoryGarden (Outstanding Corporate Brand-land)
Electrosonic handled the design and systems integration for BRC Imaginations Arts, and maintains a service contract for Amore Pacific at The StoryGarden on the Amorepacific Beauty Campus in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
“The arrival, interior design, media installations, interactives and galleries all deliver on the essence of Amorepacific’s brand while also delivering a distinctive experience.”
