Philips Professional Display Solutions has won the Smart Buildings 2019 Best Commercial Installation Project of the Year award.
The award recognises the exciting digital signage installation that brought the museum of the National Bank of Belgium into the future – from its rich heritage dating back to 1850, future-proofing it for tomorrow – with displays that captivate and engage a new generation of audience. The perfect project to showcase a best in class solution that exceeded the end-customer’s design brief.
Partnering with Ocular, Philips Professional Display Solutions installed five jaw-dropping 98” screens at the Museum of The National Bank of Belgium. With an approach that’s sympathetic to the historic surroundings, these mammoth screens now hang two metres above the ground between the building’s pillars – giving visitors of the museum a spectacular experience.
The screens work in harmony with 20 x 10″ Philips T-Line touch screens and Ocular’s custom Audioguide system to bring the exhibits to life through an interactive visual display. In this unique installation, guests can connect with the exhibits as well as with each other through collaborative guidance.
Speaking of the award, Roeland Scholten, Sales Director Benelux said: “We were very excited to work on this project for the National Bank of Belgium project, together with our partners, Ocular. It provided us with a great opportunity to showcase how cutting edge technology can fit into historic surroundings to engage new generations and bring a new lease of life. Now, to receive such great recognition for the installation is fantastic. The whole team is delighted.”
