IMA Visitors Use Lilitabs to Explore Matisse Exhibit

It's a solid product able to withstand thousands of visitors using it.

The creativity isn’t only on the walls of the Indianapolis Museum of Art—visitors participate in exhibits with touch screen interactions using Lilitab tablet kiosks. Art lovers dive deep into collections and explore entire digital catalogs with the aid of iPad kiosks placed throughout the museum galleries. Comfortable seating stations invite visitors to relax and enjoy videos while learning more about the artists presented. Easy access evaluation stations at exhibit exits encourage real feedback with tremendous participation response. The museum’s multi-media setup highlights exhibit experiences, favorite pieces of art, key educational points, and even requests for future pieces.

“The Lilitab design is very sleek and has great aesthetic value, especially for an art museum. It’s perfect for delivering audio-visual content and accommodates many spaces well,” Silvia Filippini-Fantoni, Ph.D, Manager of Evaluation and Technology-Based Engagement for the museum. “It’s a solid product able to withstand thousands of visitors using it. It’s affordable and even easy to clean.”

Lilitabs are versatile, modular and simple to customize online using the kiosk configurator tool. The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) uses Lilitab Surface units mounted to walls, with headphones for a personal experience, along with comfortable seating to explore the Matisse collection.

This is the second IMA installation utilizing Lilitabs. T3he “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” exhibit built feedback stations into the gallery using the Lilitab Surface with keyboard mount in order to capture visitor’s experiences. Additional Lilitabs helped visitors gain a better understanding of the artist, and provided greater context for the works on display.
