The Tower Bridge Exhibition is home to the original steam engines that used to power the Bridge lifts, plus hands-on mechanisms, models and information panels.
Saville’s installation includes a bank of NEC LCD display screens providing up-to-the-minute information at the visitor reception desk, with a further 40-inch information display at the entrance to the exhibition. The information is delivered using Sedao digital signage software also supplied and installed by Saville. The programme content is designed for simple remote updating by Tower Bridge staff.
In the exhibition area, Saville has also installed a powerful Sanyo widescreen projection system alongside the scale working model of the bridge, providing visitors with an added multimedia experience of the Bridge’s history and working mechanisms on a 3.5m wide screen. An induction-loop audio system has also been installed for people with hearing difficulties.
