Fredrikstad, Norway — Underlining its ability to provide projectors of different types and specifications to support a single AV project, Norway’s projectiondesign® has supplied core technology to Electrosonic for the new building of the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. Electrosonic was the main contractor involved with the installation of audiovisual equipment and systems throughout the building.
Electrosonic was tasked with delivering AV systems that met the needs of media consultancy RomeAntics and media designer and producer Local Projects.
“Almost all the smaller screens at the NMAJH that require projection use projectiondesign,” explains Bryan Abelowitz, system sales consultant at Electrosonic.
Depending on the throw distance, image brightness and resolution required at each location, Electrosonic selected projectiondesign F12, F22, or F32 projectors, and Abelowitz is pleased with their size and performance.
Anders Løkke, Marketing Director, projectiondesign, adds: “Integrators are often asked to specify equipment from as small a number of suppliers as possible, and in circumstances like these it’s important for a manufacturer to have a wide range of products to meet different technical and application needs. This is exactly what we at projectiondesign strive to achieve, and we are delighted to have been able to supply projectors from three of our product lines to Electrosonic for the new NMAJH building in Philadelphia.”
The NMAJH is the only American museum dedicated solely to telling the story of Jews in the US, from their arrival more than 350 years ago to the present day. The museum’s new building offers exhibits over four floors, with themes ranging from ‘Dreams of Freedom’ to ‘Moving to America’, ‘Establishing Communities’, and ‘It’s Your Story’.
A variety of AV techniques are used to bring these themes to life, including the edge-blending of multiple projected images, image-masking, and a mixture of flat and curved screens, as well as the integration of projection and LCD panel technologies.
