The National Museum of the Pacific War George Bush Gallery located in Fredericksburg in Texas, USA, was recently renovated to expand the gallery’s footprint to 33,000 square feet.

The museum asked the american-based AV integrator and provider Bowen Technovation to update the gallery with the latest in AV and information technology to provide visitors with unique experience.

Bowen Technovation selected Medialon to be the main AV controller of the entire museum.

When entering the museum, visitors are immersed into media-rich presentations, meaningful testimonials and historical artifacts which offer them a better understanding of what the Pacific War was like for the US and how it impacted the world.

A wide array of exhibits are spread throughout the museum, each of them including specific video, sound and lighting effects. « We had to find a control system that would receive and deliver the information we needed for each exhibit, while making it easy to maintain and use by the museum staff. », says Brien Norris of Bowen Technovation.

Bowen Technovation selected a Medialon Manager V5 Show and Media Control software because it gave the gallery the ability to trigger certain events in each exhibit with sensors. The Medialon system also allowed the timeline-based exhibits to run simultaneously.

« This control system was also chosen because it provides for real-time editing during show production. », said Bowen Tehnovation crew member David Bennewies. « This was needed because there were several exhibit elements throughout the museum that required tight integration between lighting effects, soundtracks, and video. », he concluded.

The new gallery features several 84 inches to 103 inches LCD screens, a Dataton Watchout system, a 48-inch Global Imagination projection sphere, video servers, several Projectiondesign projectors, audio systems with speakers, etc. In one exhibit room, a Projectiondesign F32 projector displays animations and video onto a 360-degree by 320-degree sphere where visitors can walk around while listening to a prelude to the war.

One of the centerpiece of the exhibition is a captured Japanese miniature submarine that what used during the attack in Pearl Harbor. Bowen Technovation installed water effect lights to give visitors the feeling of being underwater. Thanks to lighting effects and LED fixtures, it allow to simulate explosions and fire of the famous attack. All the devices are entirely controlled and synchronized by Medialon Manager. « One of the major challenges in this exhibit was having an image of a torpedo shoot across the floor over the distance of 80 feet and explode in a ball of fire. », adds Norris.

Thanks to up-to-date AV technology, the National Museum of the Pacific War offers a high-emotion experience to all visitors.
