Video guide brings museum experience to life
Museums are continuously focused on attracting more visitors by expanding the accessibility of their exhibits and programs. Technology has been proven to be an effective tool for creating interactive learning programs and making them accessible to a broader audience.
Representatives from The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia approached First Line Software about an idea they had for an alternative to their existing audio tour – to accommodate hearing-impaired visitors. They wanted to create a mobile app for a video guide that uses sign language to communicate exhibit details.
Without this digital communication vehicle, hearing-impaired museum visitors would be limited to walking through the exhibits and reading signage that provides basic details compared to an audio tour. Or, they might simply forego visiting a museum rather than endure a subpar experience.
Mobile video platform now available to other museums
First Line built a mobile platform to host and implement the museum video guide – at no charge - for The State Russian Museum. We are also making this platform available at no charge to other museums.
The mobile video guide platform for museums can be customized by First Line. Once requirements are provided we will prepare a project proposal for consideration. Contact us today to learn more about how your museum can benefit from implementing the platform to publish your video content and interactive programs.
