Case Studies

Cool new features!
If you’ve used IGOR in your museum please let us know, we’d love to turn your story into a case study!

The Seagulls have put IGOR front and centre in their new museum!

Opened in early 2014, the club's new museum - housed in the award winning Amex Stadium - takes a supporter's look at the club's history and players.

Working closely with the club's archivist, Tim Carder, we helped to create three digital exhibits using IGOR. The first looks at the history of the club's kits; the second delves into club facts and figures, including a 'did you know' section; and the third is a video jukebox which gives visitors access to some of the classic games from the past.

All three exhibits were up and running in time for the museum's launch and Tim has now taken control,  updating and enhancing them on a regular basis.

Using a number of IGOR licenses, the Digital Programmes team at the NPG, led by David Saywell, have created a video jukebox based around a series of artist interviews. Using IGOR they were able to create the exhibit in days - and once the exhibition is finished they can re-purpose the exhibit for another artist (or topic, or idea, or narrative) at no extra cost.

David told us, 'IGOR provides us with a well-featured toolset to deliver in-Gallery interactives quickly and for free!'

IGOR has recently been installed in two galleries at the Science Museum: Oramics and Antenna.

Dave Patten, their Head of New Media told us, 'We have a requirement for software that allows us to quickly and cheaply put together information points, especially for temporary exhibitions. We identified that a template-driven solution was a great way to do this as it means that non-technical staff can create the exhibits. We've reviewed a number of solutions in the past, and were looking to buy in a system when Digital Opportunities demoed IGOR (Interactive Galleries On Demand) to us.'

The Science Museum worked closely with us during the final stages of IGOR's development and provided a wealth of valuable insights and on-gallery testing to ensure the interface and functionality were optimised for museum and gallery deployment.

Dave added, 'We were able to carry out some evaluation work to ensure it all worked as planned. We put it into one system in the Oramics gallery and five in the Antenna gallery.'

'We were able to add the content simply and easily - photos, videos and a deeper level of text than you might find on a panel. Igor's easy to use interface meant that we could hand the development to small content teams, who would not normally be involved in technical work.'

IGOR's first success story. If you'd like to find out more about this project please contact us. Or you could do worse than visit the Science Museum to see them for yourself!
