Inexpensive web and multimedia interactivity to enhance your collection, venue or museum
Multimedia and the web are inexpensive tools much under-used by many museums, heritage sites and archives because people mistakenly think they require big budgets.
At Footmark Media, we believe multimedia can be an empowering and cost-effective way for museums to:
- offer more information, interactivity and learning
- reach a wider audience serve the community, researchers, schools and enthusiasts
- create an interactive community between experts, curators and the general public
- offer accessibility and language options
- create pre- and post-visit learning experiences
- provide more access to collections where display space is limited
Interactive web technology-based multimedia can be delivered online, in-gallery and on CD-ROM or DVD. CD-ROM archives are ideal for staff management, providing information for researchers and students, and for creating school resources and ‘collection highlights’ to sell. Production can be simple, phased and inexpensive to meet small budgets. See > FAQS and > Is it expensive?
Multimedia content can include text, images (maps, photographs, paintings), audio (recordings, transcripts), film (archive materials), video (demonstrations, visual guide), and animations and fly-throughs. When combined with interactivity they can create a wide range of exciting learning experiences, flexible exploration routes to differing levels of information, and the ability to become part of the exhibition itself whether onsite or somewhere else in the world!
