Face of Britian audio guide installation

Client

Historian Simon Schama joins forces with National Portrait Gallery curators to create five new displays exploring the development, character and meanings of British portraiture.. The exhibit were split into five themes: Power, Love, Fame, People and Self.

Challenge

Provide a seamless “automatic audio guide” experience ,allowing guests to explore the exhibit enjoying the collection in their own language without having to think about controlling the audio.

Solution

BLE  beacons were positioned in a way so that when guests were within a certain proximity of an exhibit, the audio guide would play the corresponding audio for that theme. The temporary exhibit was published to both app stores whilst the exhibit was shown.
