After a long day of traveling, Senior Project Manager, Andy Scherr, and I arrive at the hotel to get a quick briefing on the install progress before getting dinner. Our AV Specialist, Tom Brissette, has already been onsite for three days, and we’re all about to go into the home stretch. Our work here is culminating months of planning, design, programming, and prototyping several new exhibits at the National Museum of the Pacific War.
Bright and early the following morning, our BPI team is ready to head over to the museum to meet with our clients, and continue our work to get everything online. At an install, the best thing you can do is be ready and willing to lend a hand wherever needed. So while I was there specifically to configure our programs onsite and train museum staff in using their brand-new content management system, I wound up pitching in for other odd jobs, and even found myself sitting outside the new museum building, painting speakers to match the ceiling.
The content management system training went off without a hitch, since we had planned for all the content they might want to change down the road. Our interactive developers built a robust program that allowed the museum to make updates, changes, and additions to the program content whenever they needed.
It’s always satisfying to see an install progress smoothly according to your plan. There’s nothing better than seeing our products installed in their new homes in the exhibits. All of it comes together when our team plans for anything and anticipates everything.
After days of hard work, we always reward ourselves with some good food. The best part of traveling to museums and visitors centers is getting to try the local cuisine, and we can eat (almost) as well as we can imagine.
(PS - Look out for more photos of the exhibit space coming soon!)
