Magnolia, OH (PRWEB) October 17, 2010
When launched in 2008, Opus offered a new world of possibilities that changed the way museums and heritage sites provided interpretation with audio and multimedia guides. Full color playback video, still images and animation have created unlimited opportunities for interpretive content with videos and images of artists at work, visual references to art history and interviews with curators and experts. Any institution could now offer visitors access to various digital resources, packed in a platform that has been specially designed to fit the needs of its visitors.
Since 2008, the Opus Series has remained the state-of-the-art multimedia interpretive device. In 2010 its innovative functions continue to expand interpretation possibilities and offer intriguing content. Noteworthy features include interactive games, map orientation, remote activation and video synchronization; it is also ADA & DDA accessible, allowing the creation of sign language tours and tours for the visually impaired. Opus Content Management System (OCM) enables sites to take their content to build and update their own tour.
Designed with Acoustiguide expertise and substantial knowledge of the industry, Opus optimally responds to the industry’s variety of visitor demographics: programmed content can be anything from a traditional audio tour or image-enhanced tour to a full multimedia tour. At the same time, its high-performance computing capabilities are tailored for 21st century visitors who are accustomed to sophisticated graphic images, digital movies, fast processing speed and the memory capacity that enables delivery of high resolution video files and the high quality sound that current users of consumer technology demand.
New clients that launched Opus tours in 2010 include Beijing’s National Museum of China, Barcelona’s Picasso Museum, Pasadena’s Norton Simon Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, New York’s Rubin Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum, Toronto’s Casa Loma, Vienna’s Museum of Fine Arts (KHM), Dresden’s State Art Collections (SKD) and Manchester United Museum.
This obviously makes us very proud. With 20,000 players offered at over 100 sites with 15 million users this year alone, Acoustiguide’s Opus is the leading multimedia interpretive guiding system throughout the world.
