For the first time in over 200 years, the Brooklyn Navy Yard opened its doors to the public to debut a world class museum dedicated to the rich history of the yard. November 15, 2011 marked the opening date for BNY92, located in a former officers quarters on Admiral Row.
VideoSonic designed and installed the Show Control and media Playback system for an immersive show inside the hanger deck on board the Intrepid. A VideoSonic Information Display Systems (VIDS) automated the entire operation of the show; audio, video, lighting, and flame effects – even the (5) motorized screens roll up and down on cue. All of this runs in synch with 13 tracks of multi-channel audio to bring the audience back in time to an event in the Intrepid’s history: A Kamikaze attack that occurred in 1944.
When the Statue of Liberty re-opened to the public in 2003, visitors were welcomed with a new Wayfinding and Information Display Systems designed and installed by VideoSonic. Careful attention was made to assure that the new technology blended well with the historical interiors of this National monument. An example of that is the Lobby Information Display; the antique bronze monitor surround matches the existing 150 year old metalwork.
