  • 1TB SD Card: Enhance Storage on Your Projector / Camera

    If you take as many photos and particularly videos as we do these days with an SLR, you'll find you quickly run out of storage on your device especially if taking Full HD or 4K videos. Also the device can start to run slower as soon as it fills up the card. Well now Sandisk have brought out a solution to this problem with a 1TB ultra fast SD card to solve these issues.

    Whilst the storage is expensive its very fast and means you can avoid expensive monthly cloud subscriptions by retaining data on your card for longer without overwriting.

    We recently did an exhibition where a fast storage device would have really come in handy allowing large storage of 4k videos from our photographers SLR camera and then direct transfer to the projector for instant playback (although transfer needs to be done via wire as most portable projectors use micro SD or USB but it does mean you have more freedom to take videos without constantly transferring).

  • Creating a sensory visitor experience at National Trust

    The National Trust's Dunster Castle in Somerset is notorious for its ghostly goings-on which never fail to spook both visitors and staff. As part of a wider project to bring the Castle to life for new and existing audiences, 20/20 has created an exhibition in the Castle's Crypt that showcases the ghosts as well as the castle's history and resident bats.

    For this project 20/20 co-ordinated all the interpretation elements including design, artwork, copy, illustrations, additional photographic images and audio visual, as well as all carpentry, manufacturing and installation.

    Step inside the Crypt and it appears as any other store room would; full of crates and barrels. But take a closer look and the castle's hidden history, myths and unusual inhabitants start to come alive.

    A spooky atmosphere is created through an audio exhibit documenting real life ghost stories told by the castle's staff and residents, whilst other ghost tales are brought to life by the voice of actor Clive Swift - famous for his role as Richard Bucket in Keeping Up Appearances. Using a black light torch, visitors can also find hidden messages written in UV ink on a collection of photos and sketches, and a shadow theatre enhanced by a selection of props is a fun interactive for children.

    The immersery, audio-visual experience is continued into the bat room. A batcam monitor shows live footage of the bat roosts in the chapel and a virtual bat roost has been created by projecting archive footage from the batcam into an alcove. Bat sounds can be heard via a wind-up audio device, whilst a calendar documents the fascinating year in the life of a bat.

    The kitchen rooms tend to be the most popular at National Trust properties, however visitors are unable to access such rooms at Dunster Castle. To provide a sense of what the kitchen was once like, we created an audio exhibit telling real stories from kitchen staff records down a 'waste pipe' from the kitchen located above the Crypt.

    Despite budget and listed building constraints, the Crypt – an empty, dark room that once confused and disappointed visitors, has been transformed into an truly sensory visitor experience.
