WA Museum

The Antartica Experience

The Challenge

In early 2018 we were approached by the Western Australian Maritime Museum to help them mount a large scale presentation of an upcoming 360 film they had partly commissioned from local filmmaker Whitespark Pictures. Rather than using individual VR headsets, with headphones and swivel chairs to show the film, the team deployed our dreamdeck360™ immersive cinema system, within their theatre.

The Execution

It was a bold and innovative move which paid off, allowing the Museum to process much higher numbers than a traditional VR headset model.

Using our system allowed them to process a high turnover of visitors with little ingress and egress time wasted and supervision coming from existing visitor experience staff there was no need for specialist staff. The dreamdeck360™ team trained members of the museums staff and provided on site technical support throughout the activation.

“I have to say watching the Antartica Experience with my grandson was one of the most special moments in my life, the fact that we were watching it together with 5.1 surround sound was incredible”  Malcolm Tunbridge UK

The Results

Because of the innovation provided by the dreamdeck360™ system the WA Museum achieved more than 20,000 visitors across a 12 week activation.
