Digital Art Gallery on the AIDAnova

The new flag­ship of AIDA Crui­ses, AID­A­no­va, delights pas­sen­gers with a wall-fil­­ling digi­tal art gal­lery on board. The Ham­burg sys­tem inte­gra­tor Amp­town Sys­tem Com­pa­ny has deve­lo­ped and instal­led the mul­ti­func­tion­al concept.

As the lar­gest media tech­no­lo­gy instal­la­ti­on in the gal­lery on deck 6, Amp­town Sys­tem Com­pa­ny (ASC) has moun­ted a split screen LCD video wall con­sis­ting of 6 x 2 Pla­nar dis­plays. During the day, dif­fe­rent the­mes are dis­play­ed, inclu­ding snapshots, lively pic­tures taken by the ship’s pho­to­grapher and art­work that can be purcha­sed on board.

Sen­s­Flo­or is instal­led direct­ly in front of the screen under the woo­den flo­or, invi­si­ble to the guests. The sen­sors detect when peo­p­le are stan­ding in front of the screen and trig­ger actions: For exam­p­le, a vir­tu­al veil opens and, depen­ding on the move­ments, the view of images in the back­ground is released – an unex­pec­ted and attrac­ti­ve eye-catcher.
