Protech Integration Help Create New Spectacular at the Tower of David Museum

Tower of David Museum Night ShowTower of David, the Museum of the history of Jerusalem in Israel, launched a new spectacular night show. Protech Integration was the leading integrator, in-charge of all technical aspects including: project management, system design, installation and ongoing maintenance.

The Tower of David, considered as a central cultural institution in Israel, is located in the magnificently restored citadel in the heart of Jerusalem. Within the citadel’s walls, the museum initiates and undertakes projects that try to add additional dimensions to the usual museum experience. The new spectacular night show joins a long tradition of exhibits and projects, which herald the juxtaposition of ancient and modern.

The night show, with its mesmerizing film footage, envelopes the spectator in a unique multi-sensory experience. Composed of motifs connected to the history of the city, its significance and its spirit, the show’s dynamic collage changes our perceptions of time and place.

Created by Skertzo, the show is a combination of artistic techniques including a giant sound and projection systems that work together to create a powerful experience.
“We had complicated technical challenges: sensitive electronic equipment that needed to be installed in open space under severe climate changes all year round. There was also the need to overcome problems stemming from working in an archeological site with complex physical conditions, strict aesthetic demands and extremely difficult cable laying? said Yehuda Vaknin, whom was in charge of the complete technical management, “We selected Protech Integration for their proved capabilities, a company that could lead us through this complicated project so we could open according to the time goal we set for ourselves?.

As soon as the project was confirmed, Protech Integration and ETC France, had less than three months to decide on equipment, install infrastructure, design and assemble weather-proof projection rooms, lay fiber optic cables for video and control and design command rooms.

“Because of the impossible time schedule, we had to install equipment and design the system at the same time, the only way to succeed was to work in a very precise time table? said Asi Goren from Protech Integration. “Thanks to the experienced Protech team and the devotion of our people, we identified and solved the problems before they arise, so we did not waste presses time on fixing faults?.

The show is comprised of characters that are projected onto the walls, archeological ruins, bridges and hidden pathways of the ancient citadel, the Tower of David.

Medialon Manager controls the entire AV equipement used on the show, including twenty projectors driven by ten Onlyview servers and ten Adtec High Definition players, as well as Alesis hard disk audio player used for the multichannel soundtrack. The sound system is by NEXO.

Medialon Manager is also used to overview and maintain the system (projector errors, lamp life, etc.).

The show will be running four times a week, under almost any weather condition.
