IWM teams up with Sharp UK for upgraded exhibitions

Sharp UK has expanded its partnership with Imperial War Museums (IWM) to provide new Audio Visual (AV) solutions that enhance the presentation of its exhibitions across its five locations. The collaboration is part of Sharp’s Connect Partner Programme which covers a range of their products and services, from digital signage to interactive display screens.

IWM, which attracts over 2.5 million visitors a year at its 5 sites across the UK, curates and promotes exhibitions and experiences that tell the story of people who have lived, fought, and died in conflicts involving Britain and the Commonwealth since the First World War.

Shane Hamilton, Account Manager at Sharp said, “We are delighted to continue building on our successful relationship with the Imperial War Museum and further expand our offering. We are proud to help enhance the experience for visitors through our latest audio and visual offering and bring to life key exhibitions curated by the museum.”

The screen technology supplied through Sharp’s Connect Partner Programme will enable IWM to display its vast photography and video collection at forthcoming exhibitions in new, creative, and engaging ways through Sharp’s latest technologies, including Professional display systems for both passive and touchscreen digital signage environments. The partnership will cover all IWM’s sites, beginning with the new Blavatnik Art, Film, and Photography Galleries at IWM London in Autumn 2023.

Ian Crawford, Chief Information Officer at IWM added, “We are continually looking for new and better ways to help our visitors engage with the stories our collections tell, and increasingly we’re using AV as an essential part of this. With Sharp’s expertise, we can better understand what will benefit our visitor experience, and what new technology we can use to continue to innovate and remain a sector-leading heritage organisation.”
