Electrosonic Enhances the New York Historical Society Museum Renovation with Innovative AV Technology

Electrosonic provided a 21st-century update to the venerable New-York Historical Society Museum & Library, which underwent a three-year, $70-million renovation. Electrosonic designed and supplied all the audio, video and control systems for the renovation of New York City’s oldest museum.

The New-York Historical Society Museum predates the founding of the Metropolitan Museum of Art by nearly 70 years. The Museum supports the New-York Historical Society, one of America’s preeminent cultural institutions, whose mission is to explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City, New York State and the nation, and to present history and art exhibitions and public programs that reveal the dynamism of history.

Platt Byard Dovell White Architects and Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership were the design team on the project. Included in the scope of the project was a sweeping new 3,400-square-foot space that combines museum admissions, the adjacent Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery for American History and Robert H. Smith Auditorium on the first floor, and the only children’s history museum and library in the city.

The Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History forms the new Great Hall. “It’s an impressive admissions area that fascinates visitors with multiple multimedia exhibits,” says Andrew Kidd, Electrosonic’s sales consultant.

At the theater entrance and over the admissions desk are striking, sleek, semi-mirrored glass digital signage cases. Designed by Lee H. Skolnick Architecture & Design and built by DCL in Boston using Ad Notam glass, the signage provides visitors with information about the museum’s offerings and Historical Society activities. With the help of AV consultant TAD, Electrosonic supplied C-Nario signage software and players, which Unified Field used to craft the signage content.

Near the admissions desk is an interactive ‘living painting’ by Small Design Firm of Cambridge, MA. The living painting, based on Pulling Down the Statue of King George III, New York City (1852-1853) by Johannes A.S. Oertel from the museum’s collection, is displayed on a 2×5 landscape-oriented videowall made up of ten narrow-mullion Planar Matrix 55-inch monitors supplied and installed by Electrosonic. At first glance the painting on the videowall appears to be static. But behind the monitors, Dell computers run an application that makes the picture come alive.

Using a Microsoft Kinect camera, which tracks the movement of visitors, the computers launch a sequence of activities that change the content of the painting. Initially, visitors can hear the crackling and burning sound of the fire in the painting. When they approach the monitors, the dog in the foreground starts to move. As more visitors gather in front of the videowall and the longer they remain, captivated by what they see, the painting continues to come to life. The Revolutionary War colonists begin to tug on the ropes around the man-on-horseback statue in the midground, and sounds of their struggle increase. Finally, the statue crashes to the ground and smoke and ashes rise in the air. Then, miraculously, the painting returns to its original state.

In the Smith Gallery, which is capped by a remarkable ceiling by the late artist Keith Haring’s Pop Shop Studio, Small Design Firm created two interactive experiences relating to the historical artifacts on view. The New York Rising exhibit, which features a huge array of paintings and artifacts, uses five rotating display housings which contain portrait oriented 46-inch Samsung touchscreens installed by Electrosonic. When a visitor rotates one of the touchscreen cases, panning across a portion of the exhibit, the graphical images on the touchscreen pan with it, thereby highlighting the artifacts on the wall directly in line with the display. The visitor touches the image in the viewfinder to discover more information about the particular piece of artwork or artifact.

In addition, six pairs of 55-inch displays, mounted in portrait orientation, are mounted on the east and west building columns, showcasing treasures from the museum’s collection. Four Sony Vaio 22-inch touchscreens are on hand for further information gathering.

Adjacent to the Smith Gallery is the 420-seat Robert H. Smith Auditorium. This multi-purpose space, expanded with a mezzanine floor to greatly increase its capacity, hosts presentations in the form of a “distinguished speaker series” and other public programs and performances in the evenings, but during the day showcases an 18-minute multi-screen media experience titled “New York Story”. Produced by Donna Lawrence Productions and narrated by Liev Schreiber, “New York Story” traces the history of the city from its beginnings as a remote outpost to its current role as a world force.

In the auditorium, Electrosonic installed a three-projector blend system comprising Christie WU12K-M projectors fed by Extron JMP 9600-2K JPEG2000 video players controlled by a Medialon show control system. “New York Story” imagery begins at the front of the stage on four 6-foot wide screens, which roll up and down and widen to a total of ten as the tale unfolds. Images are also shown on gray drapes, set just behind the white roller screens. Midway through the show, some of the movable screens lift up to reveal the center portion of a 72-foot wide backscreen bearing a single image. During the last five minutes of the experience, the entire 72-foot span is revealed. The stage machinery for the display surfaces was provided by PDO and LA Propoint. Electrosonic designed the projection system to cover the three screen planes, which are sometimes used simultaneously. To ensure that it was feasible, Electrosonic and Donna Lawrence Productions did full size tests at Electrosonic’s Burbank facility one year prior to installation.

Electrosonic installed 38 Renkus-Heinz speakers for surround sound, augmented by two double 15″ JBL sub-woofers. Digital sound processing is by MediaMatrix Nion.

To maximize usability of the theater, an AMX-controlled full presentation system allows for everything from a complete band set up to a simple PowerPoint presentation. It features a Panasonic projector, connections for up to 18 microphones, Blu-ray and DVD players and podium control for the PowerPoint computer. The presentation system only shares speakers and the screen with the show. The theater’s mezzanine houses a touchscreen control position for Medialon and AMX, and features a Yamaha LS9-32 sound mixing board.

Outside the theater, Electrosonic equipped the Smith Gallery and Dexter Hall with fixed speakers and portable special events audio and video systems that allow presentation in either gallery with either local or theater generated audio and video. The portable part of the system can be used as a stand-alone setup anywhere in the building.

Downstairs at the New-York Historical Society, kids get their own taste of the past – even its dark side – at the DiMenna Children’s History Museum, the first ever museum devoted to children’s history. One exhibit introduces kids to Newsies, the newsboys who eked out a living selling papers on the street, while another tells the tale of the Orphan Trains used to ship destitute children out west to work on farms.

The DiMenna museum features exhibits designed by Lee H. Skolnick, with fabrication by Explus, Superior Exhibits, Murphy Catton and DCI. Interactive software and video media were created by Unified Field.

Electrosonic’s design consulting team provided design services for the auditorium as well as portions of the Great Hall and Dexter Hall. The team worked closely with Donna Lawrence Productions on the auditorium’s schematic and design development, creating two different full-scale mock ups of a section of the theater to test the design against the unique demands of the multi-screen projection.

The design consulting team also devised an innovative solution for the auditorium’s sound system. Since the main screen had limited space behind it for speakers, and placing speakers behind the main screen could not be used once the 2-foot wide screens were deployed, they opted to hide speakers in the apron and ceiling of the stage to give the audience the illusion that sound is coming from the center of the screen. The design consulting team continued its audio role post-installation, supporting Donna Lawrence Productions with the final audio mix on site.

Electrosonic’s project managers were Jackson Benedict and Ellen Simich, and commission engineer and programmer was Tony Peugh.

Ladysmith Federal Turns to StrandVision Digital Signage for Customer Communications

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ladysmith Federal Turns to StrandVision Digital Signage for Customer Communications

LADYSMITH, Wis. – June 21, 2012 – StrandVision Digital Signage and Ladysmith Federal Savings and Loan Association today announced that a bank digital signage system from Menomonie-based StrandVision has been deployed in its lobby for customer communications.

The 40” digital sign is an important part of Ladysmith Federal’s communications mix. The StrandVision system supplements Ladysmith Federal’s other communications, which include the Web, Facebook and brochures. It has replaced flyers that were routinely posted throughout the branch making the lobby area less cluttered and more attractive.

Digital signage content ranges from savings and loan financial information to community announcements, including Ladies Pink Night, a Ladysmith Federal/business community event and fundraiser for Women with Courage that recently took place at Colonial Nursery.

Customers routinely notice the digital signage announcements prompting them to ask bank tellers about an upcoming event or a product promotion.

Simplicity is Key

Sara Baker, Ladysmith Federal consumer loan officer, is the system administrator. She develops the slides using PowerPoint and sends them to the StrandVision server, which promptly updates the display in the lobby. The process is quick and easy. “I was looking for a product that is simple and easy to use because I don’t have a lot of time to spend on bank marketing,” said Baker. “StrandVision Digital Signage works. I can quickly make my content updates and then move onto my next task for the day.”

“Ladysmith Federal is making good use of their StrandVision Digital Signage,” said Mike Strand StrandVision founder and CEO. “They conducted an in-lobby promotion for St. Patrick’s Day where customers counted the shamrocks in the digital signage content to enter a drawing. That was a creative way to engage bank customers while promoting their normal business marketing announcements.”

About StrandVision

StrandVision LLC, based in Menomonie, Wis., delivers low-cost, Web-based digital signage software through a patented Software as a Service (SaaS) approach that delivers content to subscribers’ LCD flat panel screens, as well as computer screens and websites. StrandVision’s service distributes text and graphics pages, video content and national and local weather and news. It is ideal for many large and small business marketing applications, including medical and dental offices (patient education); banks, retailers and industrial distributors (video merchandising); education (student communication, staff and visitor information); employee break rooms (employee communication of events and benefits); nonprofit and religious organizations (member and supporter communication).

StrandVision also offers PC-2-TV.net, a fully digital, high-definition (HD) video extender to connect a computer to a television over long distances for use with digital signage and many other applications. StrandVision Digital Signage services and PC-2-TV.net are available directly from StrandVision and through registered affiliates and system integrators.

Image Engine Chooses Christie 4K Solution for Its New State-Of-The-Art Screening Room

Image Engine, an award-winning visual effects company, has chosen a Christie® 4K DLP Cinema® projector for its new state-of-the-art screening room. The installation is the first in Vancouver to offer 4K technology for visual effects services.

“Today’s developments in digital cinema technology are giving filmmakers new opportunities to raise the bar and output their feature films at higher resolutions,” said Greg Holmes, Chief Executive Officer. “At Image Engine we are committed to providing not only leading-edge talent, but also the most advanced technology available for our clients.”

Founded in 1995, Image Engine is known for investing in local infrastructure to help filmmakers bring increasingly ambitious productions to the Vancouver region, and the investment in Christie technology is part of that commitment.

Christie’s CP4230 was chosen for its advanced technical capabilities, which include greater image detail, truer and more accurate colour rendition and crisp resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, with 34,000 lumens brightness and 3D capabilities. Providing four times the resolution of standard 2K digital cinema, the facility can now review its work at the highest image resolution possible today.

“Working with leading edge technology is part of our company DNA,” said Academy Award®-nominated Visual Effects Supervisor and Chief Technology Officer Peter Muyzers. “4K technology is part of an evolution of filmmaking that we all need to embrace, and this investment means our clients can take full advantage of the latest technology right here in Vancouver knowing that our infrastructure supports them 100 percent.”

“We are already seeing the benefits,” Muyzers added. “Our clients really appreciate being able to come to our facility and see their vision realized as it’s meant to be seen, at the maximum resolution. It gives them the much-needed confidence that they just can’t experience without this technology.”

Kathryn Cress, VP, Global & Corporate Marketing at Christie, said “We offer an unparalleled range of leading-edge product, support and partnerships to make the benefits of digital projection available at all stages of the movie-creation process. Our 4K Christie Solaria® series helps world-leading post-production houses like Image Engine stay true to their client’s visions, showing where any corrections or adjustments are needed every night when reviewing the day’s work. Whether it’s enabling the highest resolution standards or walking hand in hand with them on high frame rate (HFR) production, Christie unleashes the creative freedom of directors, producers and the post community.”

Added Dave Muscat, Sr. Director of Sales, Christie Digital Systems Canada, “Helping Image Engine access the most advanced 4K technology available, in turn helps the firm attract clients, strengthening the local film industry in Vancouver. And with the industry’s only professional-grade quad 3G-SDI connection, Christie ensures that post-production facilities have a robust and convenient, uncompressed digital interface for flawless viewing of 4K digital cinema content.”

The screening room was inaugurated by “District 9” Director Neill Blomkamp, whose upcoming 2013 feature film “Elysium” (Sony Pictures International and Media Rights Capital) is currently in post-production at Image Engine.

Image Engine intends to attract more high-resolution productions by offering 4K services at minimal additional cost to clients. “Our goal is to provide this resource without the high price tag that people might expect,” said Shawn Walsh, Visual Effects Executive Producer. “A top-notch reviewing environment is essential for our clients’ projects.”

Image Engine provides world-class visual effects for feature films. With over 15 years in the industry and several award wins, the company has accrued feature film credits including the Academy Award®-nominated “District 9”, “2012”, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” & “Breaking Dawn, Part 1”, “The Thing”, “Immortals” and “Battleship”.
