An Updated Control System
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is a national museum that first opened in 2014 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This museum is the first national museum to open in Canada outside of the National Capital Region. Although they specialize in Canadian human rights history, they also showcase some global history as well. With a mix of permanent and ever-changing exhibits, they aim to highlight the various fights for and aspects of human rights. One of their exhibits, the Nelson Mandela exhibit, has been travelling across different locations in Canada.
Nowadays, extraordinary museum exhibits are made possible only with access to the latest technology. Advanced technology is crucial for keeping museum guests engaged with the educational material. Knowing this, the CMHR wanted to upgrade their existing presentation equipment in certain exhibits. They also required updated audiovisual equipment in other parts of their museum as well.
Matrix is very proud to have completed projects within this museum! The CMHR takes care of their equipment design and installation themselves, so they only required our services for the equipment supply and control programming. The projects described below include upgrades for their boardroom, their meeting room, and their Nelson Mandela exhibit.
The Sony projectors and lenses were supplied for the Nelson Mandela exhibit. This equipment allows the CMHR to provide their guests with impressive educational presentations, ultimately enhancing their guests’ experiences. Meanwhile, the videoconferencing equipment and the control panels were supplied for the boardroom and the meeting room. Matrix programmed the touch panels to control the entire videoconferencing systems in each of the rooms. Our experienced programmers ensured the touch panel interfaces were simple and easy to use.
