Museums Turn To Mccann Systems For Audio Visual Expertise
Today’s museums are becoming increasingly interactive. Visitors expect not only to learn but also to be involved and entertained. It is a growing trend for museums to turn to audio visual specialists to engage their attendees. McCann Systems, an innovative design-build audio visual firm, has seen a spike in interest by museums to introduce compelling audio and visual elements into both new and existing exhibits. The goal? Engage visitors, remain contemporary and stay competitive when vying for visitors.
This trend is illustrated in the recent integration by McCann Systems of all audio visual elements into the museum at the new Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located on the original site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, in Bethel NY. The purpose of the museum is to commemorate the famous Woodstock Festival and through audio visual technology, tell the story of the 1969 festival and its significance in a time of unrest and change. Through immersive multimedia exhibits and interactive displays, McCann Systems helped to bring this monumental moment in history to life.

For the Sports Museum of America, the nation’s first and only “all” sports museum, located in downtown Manhattan, McCann Systems was selected to integrate all AV elements into a multitude of unique interactive exhibits. McCann’s designers, engineers and programmers worked on dozens of technology-driven displays, delivering unique experiences to visitors. From the heart-racing NASCAR experience, pulse-pumping ice hockey exhibit to immersing visitors in the middle of parachuting, skateboarding, base jumping, surfing, cycling and other extreme activities, McCann Systems integrated highly original and inventively interactive audio visual elements.

This trend is also supported by recent AV integration for the esteemed Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, universally viewed as one of the oldest and premier centers of science education and development in the United States. When the Franklin Institute wanted to introduce an immersive AV show to their rotunda, home of the colossal seated memorial statue of Benjamin Franklin, they turned to the AV expertise of McCann Systems. Through custom projection and a precisely engineered show control system, the rotunda now engages visitors during museum hours as well as having the AV versatility of hosting corporate events and private parties. McCann’s original AV integration for the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial at the Franklin Institute illustrates how innovative audio visual technology can greatly increase the vitality of an existing exhibit.
