IBC exhibitor NEC Display Solutions has been chosen as Technology Partner for the eagerly anticipated Sherlock Holmes exhibition at the Museum of London.
Sherlock Holmes, which opens in October 2014, is the first major exhibition since 1951 on the world’s most famous fictional detective, to be staged in the capital. It will illuminate the man who never lived and will never die, and consider why Sir Conan Doyle’s character has endured for more than 125 years, appearing in print, radio and on screen in numerous incarnations. He is now arguably the most iconic fictional Londoner, with a global reach and worldwide fan base.
The exhibition curators will make extensive use of film and photography to stitch together the many faces of Sherlock Holmes. With NEC’s expertise, the museum is planning an ambitious and impactful climax of the exhibition, which will give visitors a fully immersive Sherlock Holmes experience.
“We have identified NEC videowall display equipment as the best technology solution for this part of the exhibition, which will also be the final section and the one that all our visitors will leave talking about,” says Rebecca Gilmore, exhibitions project manager at the Museum of London.
Throughout the exhibition, NEC desktop, large format displays and a PX750U projector convey the narrative, whilst sixteen new 46” NEC X464UN LED backlit videowall displays will create the canvas for the exhibition’s final compelling reveal.
“Building on the success of recent high profile exhibitions at the museum, combined with the public interest we have already seen, and the global phenomenon which is Sherlock Holmes, we expect to attract in excess of 100,000 visitors over the course of the exhibition,” says Rebecca Gilmore. “To have NEC on board as our Technology Partner for Sherlock Holmes bolsters our audio visual capabilities to add to this world class exhibition. We look forward to working with them in order to deliver this.”
The exhibition opens on 17 October 2014, running until 12 April 2015, tickets are available now from The Museum of London.
