Complete renovation of the building of the Archaeological Museum of Istria (AMI) in Pula is one of the largest investments of the Ministry of Culture and Media and the Museum itself. The project also includes the renovation of The Small Roman Theater, which will be able to accommodate about 2,000 people just like in the time of ancient Rome, and the installation of the largest screen in this part of Europe, with a dimension of over 400 square meters. In the first phase of renovation, several multimedia indoor kiosks and outdoor totems were installed, as well as the players for digital signage screens and video walls.
The Archaeological Museum of Istria is one of the most famous museums in Croatia, founded in 1902 in Pula. It covers an area of 3600 m2. The museum preserves exhibits from Istria and Primorje from prehistoric, ancient and medieval times. The museum works on the improvement of professional, research and scientific work, in addition to the activities of presenting archaeological material.
The Archaeological Museum of Istria has decided to initiate a project through which the building of the Museum and the Small Roman Theater will be completely renovated. Therefore, the Museum decided to set up multimedia indoor kiosks and outdoor totems with a multitude of interactive applications and content.
To deliver a quality visually impressive, and at the same time cost-effective solution of multimedia kiosks and totems that will be well noticed and accepted by the Museum and its visitors.
The solution needed to be equipped with a package of centrally managed multimedia applications and in the creative part of the project it was necessary to study the cultural heritage of the area, develop visual content and design user interfaces.
With the installation of the players for digital signage screens and video walls, PandoPad® 22 ”FLOOR and PandoPad® 55” TOTEM units, all interactive services necessary for informing and presenting content have been realized. Multimedia totems consist of an interactive touchscreen. The screens are of the most modern technology, they have high brightness, they are anti-glare (visible in the sun) and they have high resolution.
The project includes the renovation of an old Austro-Hungarian building on 4,500 square meters, which was built in 1890 as an Austrian gymnasium. In 1925 it was formed into the Royal Museum of Istria, and adapted in 1930 and formed into a city museum.
The first phase of the museum renovation includes the installation of outdoor and indoor multimedia equipment.
Modern indoor multimedia kiosks fit into the space and become a focal point for providing information for visitors.
The housings of our totem units are modern, attractive in appearance, specially designed for outdoor installation and easy installation.
Video players for digital signage screens and video walls provide support for displaying digital content (video, animation, images).
The kiosk is set up on the sideway where it can be easily spotted by a large number of tourists and visitors.
In order to prolong the life cycle of outdoor interactive totems as much as possible, we have placed special emphasis on different levels of security such as resistance to vandalism, weather conditions, fluid accumulation, etc.
