Exhibition visitors, comprised primarily of fans of the television show, were delighted by the displays and the interactive ‘Jack Robinson Murder Mystery Machine’.
The NTAV saw over 60,000 visitors through its doors within the first three months of the exhibition - an exceptional start given the size of the exhibition - with more than 30 per cent of visitors participating in the exhibition game. This presented a positive increase from the average take-up rate of less than 10 per cent.
Martin Green, Learning and Interpretations Manager at the NTAV said, “Amber Technology provided the NTAV with extensive end-to-end support, from the initial project briefing through to post-sales. Amber Technology discussed existing and potential needs to ensure the solution we chose would be adaptable for future projects at the NTAV.
“The heritage-listed Rippon Lea mansion presented a series of logistical challenges, which meant we had to think of a flexible way of creating an engaging and visually exciting space without modifying the building’s existing fixtures.
“Amber Technology recommended a solution based on Optoma projectors, which met our requirements perfectly. These products are versatile and perform exceptionally well, projecting superior quality images in bright and dimly lit environments. Easy to use and move between different areas of the venue, these Optoma projectors are versatile for use in virtually any application,” continued Green.
The Optoma projectors will remain an integral part of the exhibition for its entire life-span. The exhibition left Rippon Lea to tour Australia and has since been installed at Ayers House Museum, Adelaide and the Old Government House, Sydney. It can still be seen at the Old Government House, Brisbane until September 2016.
