Short throw LCD projectors at Sant Boi museum (Spain)
Bringing history to life – short-throw projectors at Sant Boi museum
Just 11km from Barcelona, Sant Boi de Llobregat is a region with many important cultural and historic stories from the past.
From Iberian artefacts, to Roman baths and civil war – with a rich history and cultural background, the museum of Sant Boi needed a display installation that can clearly show visitors the cultural impact of each historic period, and give them a memorable experience.
Transparent technology in an ancient architecture
Teaming up with Espai Visual, the museum of Sant Boi wanted to create displays with great visual impact while educating the people about the history and diversity of the area.
Seeing the success of an immersive exciting experience
Using Hitachi's short throw projectors, the design team manage to create an immersive experience that impressed the young and old alike.
Future projections for the perpetuation of an ancient heritage
Through innovative technology, Hitachi has enabled the rich culture and history of Sant Boi de Llobregat to be passed down to the next generation, while bringing communities together.
The museum's challenge
- Create an experience that is dynamic and easy to understand – something for everyone, not just history experts.
- Design and display with great visual impact, while working within the constraints of the small spaces inside the 17th century buildings.
Seeing the success
- See some of the display in action.
- Understand why the visitors want to come to the museum again and again.
Enabling history to pass on to the next generation – inspiring communities.
