National Museum of Northern Ireland

One branch of the museum is found in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Ulster, housing treasures of the past and present, home to a rich collection of art, history and natural sciences. It reopened in October 2009 after a 3 year, £17million redevelopment project.

D J Willrich Ltd became involved in the project in October 2008, to advise on, provide, and install the hardware, and also in a consultancy role for the lighting design.

DJW began the installation of the hardware in March 2009 and successfully completed in time for the opening in October. The challenge was to provide this large building with suitable and adequate audio visual to allow for these exhibits to be shown off to their best advantage.

DJW designed the system to facilitate control and updates to multimedia exhibits over the Museum network. This enables staff to ensure that all multimedia stations are up to date, access the Internet if required, and to monitor lamp life on video projectors.

All the media was supplied from the James Bond films, but was edited and developed into an experience and immersive show by DJW and all lighting was by DJW.
