The Scientific Center Kuwait [TSCK] is both a science centre and an aquarium with displays of fish and animals from the Gulf region.
Magian worked with staff at TSCK to review the original exhibits in the aquarium as well as the animal exhibits. A plan was developed for the refurbishment of the interpretive messages through the introduction of approximately fifty new multimedia exhibits including touchscreens.
Magian designed, developed and produced more than forty media programs of various types including a suite of Species Identification touchscreen programs located beside the live animal enclosures and the tanks in the Aquarium.
Magian also designed the technical infrastructure for the media, specified all hardware and supervised the installation. Media programs include video programs, soundscapes, and touchscreens. Magian also implemented a wireless iPod Touch program that allows staff to interrupt the exhibit multimedia programs and deliver presentations of additional content to enhance and amplify visitor understandings of the natural world of the region.
Magian installed and commissioned all software and conducted training sessions with relevant technical staff at TSCK.
All programs operate within the Magian MMaPS database Content Management System [DAMS] allowing complete updateability of all content including the Species ID content by husbandry staff as they manage the live collections.
The Magian DiAC System is used to manage and control the dynamic randomized soundscapes in response to visitor numbers.
