Audiovisual specialist, DJ Willrich Ltd (DJW), has contributed to the success of Bristol’s recently opened M Shed museum, which includes the completion of a brand-new multimedia installation.
The firm has installed several pieces of audio and visual hardware within the city’s flagship museum, which recently opened its doors to the public.
The attraction, which received over 5, 000 visitors on its opening weekend, features three galleries showing the history of Bristol, from prehistoric times to the present day. The museum challenges the perceptions of what it has meant to live in Bristol over the centuries, through the recollections of the people who shaped the city.
Experts from DJW installed two projections and 60 ICT points, with touch-screen computers for public interaction. Visitors can input their own thoughts and opinions into the computers and contribute to the changing story of the city.
The award-winning firm also installed video and audio points which members of the public can scroll through and select to play their own choice of sound bites and videos taken from the community, all sharing their memories of Bristol.
Project Manager, John Doe, said: “We were delighted to hear that on the opening weekend such a large number of people visited the exhibition, with lots of positive feedback. “
“To provide so many individual areas for public interaction proved challenging but as a company that’s what we thrive on and during the project we have also learnt how Bristol has grown and transformed over the years.”
Andy O’Brien, Bristol M Shed museum’s ICT Project Manager, said: “DJW has been great to work with. Their expertise and willingness to go the extra mile played a big part in the project’s success."
