Digitisation of museum environments and creation of software and apps
By combining skills in engineering and ICT with architecture and museum furnishings, TechLab Works, over the years, has managed to create, through innovative digital technologies, environments that are characterised by a high level of engagement, which are capable of involving the visitor and leading them to discover the museum. Multimedia totems, LED walls, digital signage systems, 3D reconstructions, augmented reality and virtual tours, all combined and installed, which provide the museum with tools for innovative current uses. The DiGiMA app (Digital Guide for Museum and Art) is the synthesis of all this. Using a 3D reconstruction of the museum and a tablet it is possible to guide the visitor, enrich the descriptions of the works on display with multimedia content, and create interactive content rich video guides that are both modular and expandable. Through the use of a specially designed CMS the museum staff can modify the contents of the app, add new collections, works and descriptions, and therefore ensure the guide is always current and relevant to the exhibits.
