The Technology

Airbus Wing A

A touchscreen interactive explaining aerodynamics, works in conjunction with a real life airbus wing situated locally, whereby different touch screen functions can be selected, resulting in a direct response with real movements from the wing to simulate aircraft flight motion.

The Technology

Consub Integrated Video System

This exhibit comprises of a 27" LCD display, a video camera and setwork speakers. A rack mounted solid-state media player provides looping video content of the consub to the screen. Visitors can use pushbuttons to switch between the Brightsign content and the live camera feed from the consub on-board camera.

The Technology

Concorde Simulator

Projection and audio systems augment flight simulator software installed within an original concorde cockpit mock-up, enabling visitors to fly the concorde using real controls in a Google earth simulated environment.

The Technology

Archive Stations

24" interactive touchscreens with setwork speakers engage visitors in additional archive reference material allowing further scope for investigation and learning. 

Next: Methodology

Creative Ambition

By connecting to the notable story behind this iconic site and its important role within the British Aerospace industry, we were able to craft an engaging interactive experience that shares the rich history within the refurbished World War I listed hangars and brand new Concorde hangar.

Customised Experience

Audio and visual installations supplemented the interpretation of the exhibits on display creating an engaging and interactive experience. Working with the client, we were able to offer valuable advice on alternative methods of presentation where issues arose relating to visitor flow and safety around the Development of the Aircraft. This allowed resolutions to be provided in situ, and within an exceptionally short time period.

Precise Execution

Working with a team of passionate volunteers, many of whom have dedicated their lives to aviation, our teams collaborated throughout the installation phase to ensure that the aspirations of the Bristol Aero Collection Trust were accurately realised. This valuable connection between audiovisual and avionic specialists enabled a sharing of specialist knowledge and skillsets, resulting in the delivery of solutions that perfectly connect and enhance the visitor encounter with the aerospace industry.

Seamless Support

Working closely with Beck and supporting all teams during the final stages of the install, we assisted with resolving problems and last minute changes. Working under high pressure, our commissioning team ensured that all media content was uploaded to AV hardware in time for the opening, despite compressed timescales. Our dedication and commitment to fulfilling these challenging demands, helped to ensure project completion in time for the public opening despite multiple project delays.
