A podcast featuring Mad Systems' founder, Maris Ensing, who talks about our new patented technology: Recognition based media delivery.

One size does not fit all, and in a world where there is a new audience for which the previous 'magical' technology is just something they accept as the norm, it becomes essential to create something that goes well beyond that which was acceptable 10+ years ago in a pre-iPhone and pre-iPad era.


 


No longer are museums about gawking at static displays of what life used to be or reading one person’s interpretation of a work of art. The museum experience is changing thanks to technology. Convincing curators or foundations backing museums to install advanced devices, on the other hand, can still take time, said David Whitemyer, Director of Business Development for Luci Creative in a conversation on the subject with Tricia Rodriguez, our Director of Marketing.

"It will be wonderful if we could get every family member interested in museums, because they have so much to offer; however, we also need to give them a personal experience, because they’re expecting that today,” Rodriguez said. “Especially our young museum-goers – they want to be enlightened. They want new technologies. They want to be able to understand the technology at their level – the graphic panel is something they don’t take time to read any more. They need to be engaged.”

Of course, we're also talking about David's photography, his book and a limoncello recipe.


 

In our first podcast, Tricia Rodriguez talks about how our diverse team has been innovating to create a paradigm shift for the AV industry.
