California Science Center Interactive Displays
The California Science Center has seen more than 17.5 million visitors since it opened in 1998. Its permanent and rotating exhibits, educational programming, and IMAX theater span more 400,000 sq. ft of gallery space. It is one of the cornerstones of Exposition Park, "a collection of world-class museums, sport facilities and recreational areas," just next to the University of Southern California main campus.
The California Science Center is currently undergoing a three-phase expansion and when completed will feature four worlds, each focused on a different theme. In the process of completing phase two and three of the project, when finished, the science center will be the largest center of its kind in the western United States. Four Winds Interactive (FWi) is proud to develop the California Science Center digital signage in coordination with this premier Los Angeles attraction.
The California Science Center Digital Signage System
Currently, FWi's California Science Center digital signage is used to display show times outside of the box office at the IMAX theater. Other digital displays will soon expand to other areas of the science center. Indeed, the next wave of digital displays should increase the use of California Science Center touchscreens. These new touchscreens will include a wayfinding component to assist in helping visitors navigate throughout the center. Additionally, the next round of California Science Center digital signs will take advantage of FWi's built-in emergency messaging feature which dynamically alerts visitors and staff of important safety messages. These technological innovations are not new to the venue. California Science Center touchscreens are already in use at the CSI Exhibit, where computer touchscreens teach guests about the challenge of solving crime mysteries.
