Audiovisual and Lighting integration.

The numerous benefits of AV integration in any space is always an added bonus that sets apart one business from the other however in museums it is becoming a necessity for the following reasons:

2- Introducing history to the future: With the help of lighting schemes, screens, visuals and audio, a museum can generate many optical and sensory illusions. This gives a chance for ancient pieces to come back to life, tell their own stories and be a part of modern times.

3- Auditoriums: Audiovisual integration is the main source that powers any auditorium, without AVL it would simply be incomplete. in order to properly hear the information being spread or to play visuals that back up a speaker’s text, speakers, screens and lighting need to be installed.

4- Let there be light: any piece of art or history needs to have a properly lit space in order to accentuate its value. In dim or ill fitting areas, many details can be missed or looked over which can be the cause of a great disaster for any museum.
