Lincoln Library Gets MediaMation

MediaMation's contributions to amusement and museum industry AV and show control have reached historic proportions with the Torrance, CA-based company's involvement with the new $150M Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, IL. Next-generation technologies are combined with world-class scholarship and the globe's largest collection of pre-presidential materials related to the 16th U.S. president. The Library and
Museum buildings are now open to the public.

The Museum houses a 250-seat special effects theater created by museum exhibit designer BRC Imagination Arts of Burbank, CA. MediaMation was chosen as a subcontractor by BRC to provide a variety of technological components to the theater, including VIDSHOW HD+ with three synchronized channels of high-definition video, feeding three Sanyo UF10 projectors and two Sanyo XP41 projectors; multiple touchscreen interfaces and remote operator control panels; automation of doors and other safety elements; lighting systems interfaces, including under-seat strobes; 24-channel synchronized audio with PAS speakers; as well as mechanical effects and rigging.
