The Estonian National Museum has chosen ePaper displays for it’s multilingual museum signage, which provides information about the exhibits as well as the Estonian history and culture in several languages. The solution makes it possible to provide personalized information to the visitors, hence increasing engagement and improving the visitor experience.
Visitors will receive a ticket that contains an RFID chip. The ticket is used to enter the exhibition via the turnstile and to read information from the ePaper devices in their preferred language whether it is Estonian, English, Finnish, Latvian, German or French. All of this becomes available to the visitors by a simple action – presenting the ticket to the turnstile or an ePaper device.
The installation features 6.8-inch, 9.7-inch and 32-inch E Ink displays that blend into the surroundings with its natural tone and sleek design, therefore, reducing visual noise and keeping the attention of the visitors on the exhibits. The low power consumption, wired data connections and batteryless installation of the devices ensure that the EMC and heat dissipation are kept at a minimum, which is crucial to the preservation of the exhibits.
The installation includes a Content Management Server (CMS), which makes it possible to easily monitor and configure all 867 displays via a single Web interface.
