Ideum delivers touchscreens to the Smithsonian
Ideum has installed touchscreen displays at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery America's Presidents Exhibition. Visitors can use these touchscreen kiosks to explore portraits of U.S. presidents in high resolution, according to a press release.
Ideum integrated custom software with the multitouch kiosks to display portraits of the first ladies, as well as artwork by Andy Warhol, George Tames, Peter Hurd and other famous artists. Users can use a 3D timeline to look at portraits throughout history and they can rotate 3D models.
The displays are integrated with 4K support, and built from aircraft-grade aluminum with lockable ports, according to the release.
"We wanted to design and integrate touchscreen technology into this classic gallery in a seamless way, to extend and deepen the visitor experience without competing with the portraits themselves," Jim Spadaccini, creative director and founder of Ideum, said in the release. "Ideum is proud to have played a part in giving people new ways to explore this unique historical collection."
