As visitors move through the maze-like structure of Madame Tussauds, they reach the ‘Music Stars’ gallery. In contrast to the incredibly realistic, but static, silent figures throughout the museum, visitors are suddenly surprised by the sounds, sights and energy of a ‘live’ performance on the video wall.
Music videos play behind models of iconic musicians, adding a more immersive element to the figures on display creating a more lively environment in the gallery.
An existing video wall provided a focal point for this gallery, but Merlin Entertainment wanted to bring the installation up to date and make use of the latest display technologies. Electrosonic collaborated with LED manufacturers Unilumin and media player specialists Brightsign to ensure the replacement would provide the optimum visitor experience.
To display the music videos in extremely high resolution Electrosonic recommended a higher pixel pitch for the 12 x 6-foot LED wall. The Brightsign media player delivers content with full HD and 4K playback to create greater impact and a more realistic impression.
To ensure reliable operation, Electrosonic trained the Tussauds team on proper use of the new system and provides preventative maintenance service from the local Electrosonic office.
