More interactivity for visitors in the permanent exhibits
Very much a living museum, the Porsche Museum is continually working to further develop its viewing collection. At the end of a tour of the exhibits, there is now an interactive “Porsche Touchwall” that invites visitors to research the company’s history in a playful way. When the visitor approaches the 12-metre long touchwall, the intelligent person tracking system opens the wall’s contents level which enables virtual time travel through nine decades of automotive history. Visitors can browse through the wall’s collection of over 3,000 photos, drawings, posters and advertisements of the period of 1931 to the present – including an extensive selection of images and technical data about nearly all street vehicles and race cars that sport the Porsche logo.
New contents are imported and added daily – fully automatically – via the wall’s interface to the database of the historical archives. Another special feature is navigation by touch frames, which allow several different visitors to control the media simultaneously with multi-touch gestures. Even the smallest of details can be viewed using the zoom function. What seems so playfully easy to visitors is actually an exceptional piece of high-tech wizardry. The 20 full-HD 55” displays with natively prerecorded content are driven by five graphic PCs with a 3D real-time application that also enables functions such as moving images over the entire length of the touchwall.
Another new highlight of the permanent exhibit is the interactive sound installation “Porsche in the Mix” which is a unique type of exhibit worldwide. Here, the visitor first chooses a favourite from seven vehicle models. The exhibit plays back the characteristic sounds of vehicles ranging from the 356 to the 911 and up to the 918. The visitor can then activate and deactivate eight additional sounds via a touchscreen. Sounds like indicators lights, doors closing and engine sounds are integrated into the “base track”. This progressively leads to a complete composition. The sound sources are based on original Porsche vehicle sounds that are visualised by video and animations on the wall surface. The LED sound level indicators hover in the space and vary in height and movement according to the vehicle sound and its volume. Finally, visitors can compose their own musical piece and send it home by email. “Porsche in the Mix” gives visitors a dynamic, audio-visual experience that lets them experience the Porsche brand emotionally in a unique way.
In future, modern channels will be increasingly used to enhance the presentation of Porsche’s origins and its experience in vehicle construction. The Porsche Museum now has a new multimedia guide. The previous audio clips have been expanded to include 5,000 pictures and 700 films of all exhibits in the permanent exhibition, which can be accessed via a high-resolution touch display. As a result, visitors will be able to immerse themselves even more deeply into the sports car manufacturer’s history in the future. The guide is available in the following languages: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. A children’s version is also available for our younger visitors.
在观展即将结束时，参观者将看到一面交互式“保时捷触摸墙”，其邀请参观者利用多媒体技术了解公司历史。 当参观者靠近十二米长的触摸墙时，将打开一个新的层面，为参观者提供一场领略九十年汽车发展史与保时捷历史的虚拟时间旅行。 参观者可以浏览从 1931 年至今这一时期的 3,000 余张图片、图纸、海报和广告——其中包括带有保时捷盾徽的几乎所有街车和赛车的大量精选图片及技术数据。
新内容通过墙上的一个接口每天全自动导入历史档案的数据库并显示出来。 还有一项功能是通过触摸框导航，支持多名参观者同时通过多点触摸手势控制媒体。 缩放功能使最小的细节信息也可一览无余。 这在参观者看来轻而易举，实际上是采用了不同寻常的高科技手段。 20 个全高清 55" 显示屏由五台图形 PC 通过 3D 实时应用程序控制，也可实现在整个触摸墙上移动图片等功能。
常设展览的另一个亮点是交互式声音装置“保时捷之声”，这是全球独一无二的展览方式。 在这里，参观者首先从七款车型中选择一款自己最喜欢的车型。 通过声音装置相应播放从 356 到 911 直至 918 等车型系列具有特性的声音。 然后参观者可通过触摸屏打开再关闭另外八种声音。 指示灯、关闭车门和发动机轰鸣等声音均已纳入音轨。 由此逐渐形成完整的声音组合。 所有声源基于原装保时捷车辆声音，可在墙体表面上通过视频和动画观看。 LED 声级指示器悬在空中，并根据车辆声音和音量改变音高和音律。 最后，参观者可谱写自己的音乐作品，并通过电子邮件发给自己，将其带回家。 “保时捷之声”带给参观者动感的视听体验，让他们以独特方式体验保时捷品牌的魅力。
未来，保时捷博物馆将更多地利用现代技术介绍其起源和汽车制造经验。 博物馆现推出全新多媒体导览。 在以前的音频材料之外增添了有关常设展览中所有展品的 5,000 张图片及 700 部影片，可通过高分辨率触摸屏加以获取。 未来，参观者可以更加深入地了解这家跑车制造商的公司历史。 提供以下语言的导览： 德语、英语、法语、西班牙语、意大利语、俄语、日语和中文。 我们也为我们的小游客准备了儿童版导览。
