The Visitor Audio Experience at the Australian War Memorial is intended to provide additional layers of engaging and informative curated content to enhance the visitor experience rather than provide a traditional ‘guide’ to the galleries. At this stage it has been rolled out for the “Australians in the Great War” galleries but the intention is to further expand the concept to encompass all galleries. The delivery platform for the experience is a modified smartphone device, enclosed in a specially designed case and the visitor is provided with the device and headphones for their visit.
The experience commences with the visitor receiving a ‘smart device’ on arrival in the Orientation Gallery. They are provided with a simple instruction to place it on the bench that is part of a large-scale multimedia touch wall comprised of twenty MT553UTB MultiTaction Cells. The cells are arrayed in seven columns, each with two vertical and one horizontal cells. The horizontal cell in each column is partially obscured by the vertical cell above to reduce the depth of the ‘table’, allowing easier visitor access to the vertical touch surface.
Each ‘smart device’ has a fiducial marker applied to the back cover. When the device is placed on the table the cell recognises the device and initiates the tour selection system, and reveals a tour selection menu on the adjacent vertical ‘wall’ cells. The visitor can review the available tours by touching on the tour icons, revealing details of the tour content, and the selected tour is dragged to a placeholder that animates then ‘loads’ the tour on the ‘smart device’. Once selected the visitor removes the device and makes their way into the gallery for their tour.
