Multimedia world of experience

In close cooperation with DIA - Dittel Architekten, Stuttgart, we were responsible for the conception and implementation of a multimedia information and experience world for visitors to the new TransnetBW system control centre (SCC) in Wendlingen am Neckar.

The aim of the concept was to illustrate the complex content of the transmission system operator and to make it possible to experience it in space: from the reception area via an interactive zone to the gallery on the first floor with a view of the actual control room. 

In addition to the general conceptual, creative and content-related tasks, we were particularly responsible for the conception and implementation of all audiovisual formats.

Interactive visitor zone

The heart of the visitor area is an interactive zone where visitors can gain a comprehensive insight into the work of a transmission system operator. 

The focus is on interactive experience. From transmission line planning at a multi-touchtable with object recognition to "Zeitler's world", a specially developed audiovisual format where visitors have various topics explained by a systems engineer using a wall projection.

Form, content and function - thoughtfully combined

The core furniture of the interactive zone is a multifunctional, space-creating exhibition table with topographical model and integrated multi-touchtable for transmission line planning.

Playful experience of transmission line planning

Using a 'gamification' approach, visitors can playfully experience the challenges of transmission line planning at a multitouch table with object recognition.

Complex facts explained in a simple way

At the entrance to the control room, visitors can call up various film formats on a media wall with touch function.

In the gallery on the first floor with a view of the control room, visitors can call up detailed information on the activities in the system control centre (SCC) on several touch screens embedded in a counter.
