Magian is well placed to assist clients in planning for the integration of media into either a single exhibition or an entire site. Magian staff can offer experience gained over many years working with hundreds of people – clients, artists and other designers, architects, story-tellers, hardware specialists and our gifted staff. We have gathered around us ways of looking, thinking, and being that contribute strongly to communication practice in the fields of culture and science.
Reviewing client multimedia briefs
Magian is practiced at being able to make rapid assessments of multimedia in existing exhibit designs. Our process typically covers a review of functionality within the planned built environment, suitability of delivery in relation to such things as light-levels and circulation, hardware costing against available budget, hardware suitability and lead-times, and scheduling for production.
Magian has a great deal of experience in the planning of projects. We take into consideration the procurement of hardware, sourcing and development of content, both graphic interface design and software development, rigorous testing and on-site implementation.
Hardware Advice and Specification
Over many years of developing projects in many different countries, Magian is expert at sourcing information for the needs of technical infrastructure as well as the specification of hardware of all types. We are also able to work within the requirements of different countries to minimise hardware costs.
Multimedia Hardware and Production Budgeting
Magian is practiced at providing reliable budgeting for hardware, technical infrastructure and multimedia production in the early stages of conceptual design for exhibits for all types of museums, visitor centres, zoos, aquariums, science centres and theme parks.
