Pixels supports the London Film Museum

Dunstable, June 2014 Pixels UK Ltd has supplied and configured 30 BrightSign HD players for the London Film Museum. Creative Technology, working on behalf of the museum, commissioned Pixels to supply, configure and support the media players.

Audio video is central to the concept of the museum. The reception area is filled with a 4m, 12-screen video wall and screens throughout the exhibition show information about the films featured as well as clips from the movies themselves. These screens provide a highly effective backdrop to the exhibits. 

Jonathan Sands, founder and chief executive of London Film Museum, says, “Ultimately, when it comes to ensuring the public is well-informed, everything has to be as simple as possible in terms of the journey and the experience. The minute you walk in, everything’s visualised – you’re never in the dark.”

The London Film Museum regularly hosts private receptions, and video is equally important for these. Organisers can use the screens to display specially selected themed content. The players are networked together and managed centrally. A single AV technician working from the AV equipment room schedules and updates the content, setting up different content to play during each event.

Pixels supplied and configured the BrightSign HD220 and HD1020 media players, including setting them up on the LFM’s network and training their technician in how to create, schedule and publish presentations using BrightSign’s free BrightAuthor software.  All 15 BrightSign HD1020 players are able to control the museum’s NEC projectors via their RS232 data port thereby extending the life of the projectors’ lamps and save power.

Commenting, Matt Hartfree from Creative Technology said, “The London Film Museum project is prestigious and high profile. To fulfil it, we turned to a supplier that we know we can trust. Norman Garland and the Pixels team delivered an outstanding solution for the London Film Museum, achieving all that we and the museum had hoped for.”

Norman Garland, Managing Director of Pixels, added, “Video now forms a key part of the museum experience for visitors. The London Film Museum installation shows just what can be achieved, creating a truly compelling exhibit by integrating relevant onscreen content.  We are delighted to support this project.”
