digital audio guide and app for visitor guidance and information transfer
The Mathematical-Physical Salon, housed in the Dresden Zwinger since 1728, is one of the most visited museums in the Dresden State Art Collection. The museum presents unique scientific exhibits, such as telescopes, globes or clocks. A collection of historical instruments that form the basis of our knowledge today.
As part of the planned digitization of the audio guide, we installed shoutr.Boxxes, throughout the exhibition space to create an information network that works independently of the in-house WLAN.
For the development of the app, shoutr.labs cooperated with Linon Medien, which was responsible for the concept and content creation.
Visitors can access the audio guide directly via the browser of their smartphone. At several film stations in the museum, the sometimes very complicated functions of the exhibits are explained with the help of shoutr.Audiosync.
With our shoutr.Audiosync function, we ensure multilingual and synchronous audio playback on the visitors’ terminal or rental devices.
Bring your own device
Likewise, loaner devices (Ipad mini) were set up for the exhibition. The system has replaced the classic audio guide since October 2017. Furthermore, users can save all information about the exhibits on their own devices and download it worldwide via the additional app, “MPS Museums-Guide”.
