MESO acted as the general media planner for the permanent exhibition “Friedland — Perspectives of Migration”, developed by the scenographers Gillmann Schnegg. By using an intelligent media system the visitor can explore more than 400 documents, photographs, videos and personal objects within an extremely small space. Our “networked operating system” with various multimedia elements essentially shapes the experience of the museum.
As the overall technical planner and technology provider, who have been working with the scenographers from the beginning, we were responsible for all media technology in all exhibition spaces.
This role enabled us to find smart solutions to exceed the expectations of what the scenographers wanted in each case, while staying within the preset budget limits.
With their wide-ranging content, the media installations represent an integral part of the exhibition. The exhibition creates a multi-sensory experience that invites all interested persons to explore the history of the Friedland Transit Camp.
Any type of content is activated just by holding the media guide casually against the orange play buttons.
Driven by the integrated NFC functionality, this technology is simple and proven.
It can distinguish between a large number of different exhibits within a very small space and serves content language-aware.
The museum presents more than 400 exhibition items in a total of 400 m² (4,300 square feet), including photos, text items, other objects, and multimedia exhibits. More than 100 information points are linked to each other through our specially programmed operating system.
The information points can be programmed to start different video clips, illumination effects, or play back media on the audio guide. We developed various customized video player solutions that send special synchronization signals to play lip-synced multilingual audio on the audio guide.
This project is a very nice definition of how we see museums in the future, as the role of media has changed very much. We are getting to a point where relatively sophisticated programming is becoming a standard in a museum system.
Multiple projection mapping installations show material on a large number of screens using only a single projector. The video and information graphics combine to form a scenographic medium.
Newspaper articles and handwritten comments are viewed augmented with transcriptions and translations. Small-format original photo prints can be enlarged to full-screen.
