A multi-screen system using several small rear projectors as a low-cost, space-saving solution for seamless large screen display.
Any display on a large area requires the choice of a customized technological solution—whether in the form of a panel display or projector. In a panel-type multi-screen system display, for example, it is difficult to obtain a sense of unity over a large area due to the device’s prominent joints. And as large projectors require long projection distances, much space is needed. HD projectors that provide satisfactory image resolution at short projection distances do exist, but their cost is prohibitive.
Despite their low individual resolution, by using several small rear projectors combined with a multi-screen system, the overall projection result provides an image quality that exceeds Full HD. Compared with large displays or projectors, this therefore affords a low-cost, space-saving, seamless solution, which enables multi-image display with no sense of cockling even when close up to the screen.
A 4K High-Definition Movie Theater—super high-definition images at work in a museum
Museum Lab has developed the world’s first projection system to screen and compile super high-definition still images of 4 times the Full HD resolution (3840x2160pixels) from non-compressed image data, in an audio-visual program of exceptional quality at work in a museum.
Original programs are devised in every exhibition on this high-performance system—by comparing, for instance, the works on display with other works that it would be physically impossible to exhibit alongside them, but which can be reproduced actual-size or enlarged due to the superior image quality available.
When this diffusion system is combined with a high-definition ultra-contrast screen, it is possible to project high-resolution, high-contrast images of uniform brightness onto a big screen.
Image recognition interactive table—a more durable touch panel interface
As interactive tables using touch panels are constantly subjected to visitor operation, they often suffer damage or breakage. Various measures have been implemented to enhance the devices' durability, such as reinforcing their solidity, but these are limited by physical and financial constraints.
To solve this problem, Museum Lab has developed a user interface that allows operation through the awareness and tracking of hand movements via image recognition. Moreover, by installing the sensors in a location some distance away from the table, those elements liable to be damaged may be replaced easily and at low cost.
