C-nario, a global provider of digital-signage software solutions, today announced that C-nario Messenger digital-signage platform, the company's flagship product, has been selected as the main engine behind the new multimedia displays at the museum of Brazil's Sport Club Internacional (a.k.a. Inter), one of the country's leading soccer teams.
The display was implemented by EAV - Engenharia Audiovisual, an engineering company in Brazil that specializes in consulting, training, designing and integrating of professional audio visual systems. The museum is located at Inter's stadium in Porto Alegre and attracts 1,500-2,000 visitors every week.
Inter's museum displays the club's trophies, medals, documents and photos, as well as other memorabilia and documents related to the club's history. In addition, the museum shows data about each match played with the players' names, goals, referees, etc.
The museum also conveys Inter's spirit using multimedia. Visitors can watch and listen to memories about the club's history and experience the emotions and feelings of the fans and supporters.
The visual display includes two large LED screens (400 by 200 cm) at the entrance to the museum. These function as a sort of TV news channel of Sport Club Internacional, showing team matches and other sports activities, training sessions, facts related to soccer and more, according to C-nario.
A special section of the museum, called "Ser Gigante" (To Be Giant), includes three large front projector screens presenting the club's historic path, including major achievements. Another section, called "The Torch," contains 36 TV screens displaying scenes from Inter's matches, plus images that show teams, flags and fans. The Torch is actually a kaleidoscopic mosaic of moving images portraying scenes of the team.
A section called "The Arena," equipped with two large screens, honors the players and shows films and TV shows connected to Inter. Additional 58-inch TV screens (called "The Prisms") display information about every player who has played with the team.
The "Fan's Virtual Deck," an interactive front projection large screen, enables fans to have their image inserted into a clip commemorating a goal on the screen. Fans are assembled in rows filled with other fans' clips (up to 30-40 images together).
"Our main consideration in implementing the Inter Museum project was to create a unique and unforgettable visitor experience on the one hand, and to assure the delivery of the complete audio-visual information according to the museum's demands on the other," said engineer Flávio Loureiro, CTS, EAV - Engenharia Audiovisual. "We chose C-nario Messenger due to its excellent ability to handle high impact displays."
Tamir Ginat, C-nario's CEO, said the museum joins other museums and visitor centers in which its solutions serve as the driving force behind the displays.
"Sports is a strategic market for us, and we are happy to help Sport Club Internacional display its achievements and history in the best possible way," Ginat said.
