The U-Boat Story in Liverpool is a museum that let’s its visitors explore a German U-Boat that was used in World War II. The Submarine they have on display is split into 4 sections with glass viewing partitions. They also have some interactive and audio-visual exhibits that offer a unique insight into the life on board the submarine during war time.
Back in April last year we were contacted by the museum. They were initially looking for a medium sized IP65 panel monitors to be fitted into an enclosure which had already been built for their new exhibition. They wanted a twist of modern technology to show their visitors inside the exhibition without actually stepping foot inside.
The display that we provided was our ‘IPPMW 19-TR-V’, which is fully weather-proof (IP65- sealed), is housed in a durable metal case and has transflective technology, which enables the panel to get brighter when faced with ambient sunlight thus preventing any of the content getting distorted.
Four cameras were fitted inside each chamber of the boat, and were then linked to our display. People were then able to use a small joystick on the enclosure which The U-Boat Story had created, to navigate around inside the exhibition whilst being outside.
The U-Boat Story were very pleased with the several IP65 panel monitor as they worked great in their application. If you have any applications or projects that are similar our IPPMW range is perfect.
