Digital Signage Media Players for Museums
We've all been there. We look for ways to disconnect our families from the hectic, high-tech world we live in; perhaps finding a place to learn about history or art. We suggest a local museum and hear the collective moans from our kids. "Oh mom, that's boring," or "I'd rather play on my iPad," or "I'm Instagramming/Facebooking/Tweeting right now."
But today’s museums are definitely not what they were 20 years ago. They have integrated advanced components into educational exhibits. In fact, kiosks and digital signage help history go high-tech. From video walls to interactive educational kiosks, the integration of digital signage in museums is becoming the norm. Museum directors understand that in today’s fast-paced world, the average attention span of an adult can be as little as eight seconds. They must grab and maintain that attention quickly. And that’s why interactive digital signage is going to continue to expand in the museum marketplace.
As a museum director, you’re competing with the day-to-day technology that entertains, organizes and literally runs everyone’s lives. Today’s young visitors want more interaction. Gone are the days where they stop to read static signage. Your exhibits need to be interactive, perhaps integrating push buttons or motion sensors that trigger content based on an interaction.
From interactive kiosks to digital directions throughout your museum’s corridors, Videotel Inc. can provide you with the hardware to ensure you’re getting the best ROI out of your digital signage solutions.
