Multitouch Digital Signage Wall Provides Visitors with Interactive Curation Experience
CYPRESS, CA — Blending art and technology, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s interactive digital signage Collection Wall provides visitors with the ability to curate their own experience. As part of an new $100 million renovation, Gallery One was created to inspire visitors and motivate a younger, tech-savvy demographic to explore the museum’s vast collection. Gallery One features one of the largest multi-touch digital signage screens in the United States. The interactive digital signage system can display over 3,500 images from the museum’s world-renowned permanent collection including masterpieces by Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, Viktor Schreckengost, Giovanni Panini, and Chuck Close.
Gallery One features one of the largest multi-touch screens in the United States measuring more than 40 feet in length and enables up to 16 people to interact simultaneously with the wall using RFID tags on iPad stations. Visitors can personalize and build their collections, curating their own tours on an iPad using the museum’s ArtLens app. The wall is comprised of two 15-unit wide by 5-unit tall Christie MicroTiles and uses Christie’s Interactivity Kit which provides the wall’s multi-touch capability. The Interactivity Kit lets multiple users interact simultaneously with the wall with the resolution and speed needed to support finger-based gestures such as flicking, pinching, rotating and scrolling.
An additional 4-unit wide by 3-unit tall MicroTiles “Line and Shape” video wall with another is located in Gallery One’s Studio Play, an early childhood learning zone. The “Line and Shape” wall lets up to three children simultaneously draw lines or shapes. The content management software then finds and displays similar shaped artwork from the museum’s collection, encouraging participants to see shapes in everyday life.
