Interactive touch screen terminals are modern technology made for the multimedia preparation of information and content in museums, making it graspable in the most literal sense. Conventional, printed signs and posters only offer a limited amount of space for texts and pictures, but the shape and number of media that can be displayed on a touch screen terminal with audio and visuals is virtually unlimited!
FrontFace offers you an inexpensive software solution to convert any normal Windows-operated PC into a professional multimedia presentation system for use in museums. Our efficient software guarantees a highly intuitive use and allows you to use existing content out-of-the-box on your media station. The included "FrontFace Assistant" software helps you create the graphic user interface and allows easy design of interactive elements - without any programming skills!
You can also use the software for media control and presentation: E.g. you can combine a multi-touch terminal with a projector or jumbo screen to show content appropriately, even to large visitor groups or school classes. Integrate available building management systems and room control to allow for additional, fascinating light and sound effects when interacting with the terminal and excite your visitors' curiosity about exhibits in your museum! Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions about further options of integration and use of FrontFace.
