The Effect of The Display Technology on the Showcase Environment and Conservation

Drawing on 20 years of experience in designing award-winning museum displays, ColliderCase has been very carefully designed to consider the conservation of your displayed museum object, and eliminate any fears you may have of how this exciting new technology might effect your objects.

Temperature and Residual Humidity

Although the visitor perceives the digital content to be within the showcase, it is in fact outside. The very small amount of heat generated by the display equipment disperses naturally away from the case - the internal temperature of the case is not effected in any way by the digital content display system. Similarly, the residual humidity within the sealed cabinet is not effected in any way by the ColliderCase equipment.

Illumination and Lighting Control

Whatever your conservation requirements, including the most delicate textiles, ColliderCase will not detrimentally effect your object. 

In fact, ColliderCase and iotaCase can be used to reduce the amount of light reaching your object, and increase your knowledge of exposure. By detecting the presence of a visitor at the case, our systems can switch on the case lighting in a controlled manor, ensuring that the object is illuminated only for as long as it absolutely needs to be. By including a Lux meter sensor next to the object you will also be able to study the exposure of the object to light over time, with maximum and cumulative measurements. This measurement includes light from all sources, outside and inside the case. This is a smarter way to manage light exposure for objects.

We can offer smart control of any type of lighting, from LED to fibre-optic lighting. The type of lighting inside the case is entirely your choice.

Conservation Sensor Options

The connected nature of ColliderCase opens up new possibilities for the management of object conservation. We can fit just about any type of environmental sensor to your case. Please see this page for details, and obtain prices here.

Normal Case Access

Since all of the virtual display hardware is mounted on the outside of the showcase, access to the case for placement or removal of objects is as normal - open the case, place the object, close the case.

Side or Front Access?

Side-loading is slightly preferred but objects can be loaded from any side.
