Sarner deploys AV Stumpfl for immersive exhibits at Malta war museum17 November 2015
Sarner has created and installed a multimedia installation utilising AV Stumpfl media players and 700 graphic panels and content for over 100 AV productions at the new National War Museum in Malta.
Sarner worked with design consultants, Forward Architects Joint Venture and main contractor Camray to tell the story of Fort St Elmo’s history, including Malta’s pivotal role in World War II.
“Exhibits date back to the Bronze Age, around 2,500 B.C,” explained Ross Magri, managing director at Sarner. “AV Stumpfl players are configured to display our content onto the screen. We remotely access the severs to update as necessary using a FTP server or if there is a particular event or archaeological discovery made.”
Each player loops all data and multimedia-based content created by Sarner that is frame synchronised ensuring failsafe presentations when they are switched on in the morning till when the museum closes.
“As visitors walk through the museum they are told the stories of the people, battles and ages in chronological order using visual displays and interactive elements.”
“A highlight of this brand new attraction is undoubtedly the immersive show, set inside the historic Cavalier, propelling visitors into the heart of these experiences,” added Magri. Here, a Wings Engine Play is used to manage content over three projection areas.
Wings Engine Play is an industrial standard hardware platform that uses AV Stumpfl automatic camera-based alignment calibration and has production and show control capabilities.
“This is yet another amazing use of our technology by Sarner. With thanks to the dynamic content, we’re delighted that the museum has wowed audiences since it’s opening,” said Tobias Stumpfl, CEO at AV Stumpfl.
