CONCORD, ONTARIO--Omnivex Corporation announced that the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute has implemented Omnivex software as part of its art exhibits. This system overcomes the traditional challenge museums face of representing an artist’s work with the few pieces in its possession. The result is a richer, more educational experience for the art enthusiast.

The Omnivex software makes it easy to view works of art and information to gain a much deeper understanding of an exhibit. The system also gives visitors access to videos and other rich media relevant to the exhibit. For instance, at the Lucile Ball exhibit, visitors can view TV shows, movies and other media featuring the actress, all through the kiosks powered by Omnivex software.

“The flexibility of the Omnivex software made this an easy fit,” said Jim Oremland, account executive at solution integrator Nelson White Systems. “The museum wanted a touch screen system that could interface with many different types of media and file formats. Omnivex content management software allowed the museum to easily create visually appealing content using their existing media assets.”

As a result of Omnivex’s strength as a data platform, content can automatically respond to current conditions, such as an input from a touch screen, to provide a more relevant experience for the viewer. Additionally, the software fulfilled the museum’s requirement to manage the entire network remotely from their design studio.
