The Crown Property Bureau of Thailand has recently opened the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, an interactive self learning center and venue where invaluable pieces of information and artifacts on the history, arts, and culture of the Kingdom of Siam (also called Rattanakosin) era are compiled and maintained in the most extensive range ever found in Thailand.
Based in Bangkok, this fount of new form of education and knowledge, has been designed and managed by Rightman Co. Ltd, a company specialized in exhibition designing and set-up.
Advance Technology Contracting Co. Ltd (ATC), a famous Thai-based AV system integrator, was in charge of supplying the AV equipment and turning into life Rightman Co. Ltd's creations.
A Medialon control system has been integrated by ATC. “Medialon Manager software is the best AV interactive control system solution”, declares Noppharit Neansa-ard, AV and Lighting specialist for ATC. “It allows to remotely synchronize and control any of the AV devices spread into the seven exhibition rooms of the Rattanakosin center, along with other equipment such as an hydraulics lift, automatic doors, etc.”, adds Noppharit Neansa-ard.
The Rattanakosin's exhibition rooms are located on three storeys. One Medialon Manager V5 Pro software, as well as two Medialon Showmaster ST units and seven Medialon MIP players have been installed in the centre. Thanks to Medialon's free Manager Panel software, ATC designed a user-friendly touch control panel which allows the Rattanakosin's staff to remotely and automatically turn on/off the AV devices in each of the exhibition rooms or launch any of the multimedia spectacles they want to, and even check shows' status for instance. The touch control panel system is made through a Medialon Rugboard Wi-Fi Touch Screen.
Inside the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, visitors can discover the “Grandeur Rattanakosin Room” which brings them back 200 years ago, to the Kindgom of Siam era via a four-dimensional multimedia show which mixes audio, lighting, video as well as scent and sensory effects, all controlled by Medialon. Inside the “Remarkable Entertainment Room”, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the olden days of Siam with Thai traditional entertainment spectacles. The visit goes on with the “Renowned Ceremonies Room”, which is a place where three-dimensional spectacles and grandeur of royal ceremonies and royal waterway processions may be appreciated by the visitors nowhere else but in the Rattanakosin center. In addition, with the “Sight-seeing Highlights” exhibition, people can live a brand new audiovisual experience by being part of a video allowing them to travel across the great old city of Rattanakosin.
“This exhibition hall has been designed with the objectives to create Thai public awareness of greatness of our nation”, declares Mr. Upatham Nisitsukchareon, Director of Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall, in charge of designing work, renovation and Rattankosin Exhibition Hall management. “State-of-the-art multimedia technologies, as well as interactive animations were also a main focus to be present in each of the seven exhibition rooms. In brief, not only knowledge but also entertaining pleasure had to be obtained in the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall.”, adds Mr. Upatham Nisitsukchareon.
With the Exhibition Hall, “foreign guests who come to Thailand are able to learn about the beauty of Thai culture. Our people, especially the youth, can be proud of the Thai way and being Thai.”, concludes Mr. Sermkhun Kunavongse, in charge of Nitas Rattanakosin Special Events.
The Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall plans to open two more exhibition rooms in 2011.
