Smith & Jones Design Consultants were commissioned by the Centre to overhaul the reception area and create a space that better communicates all of the amazing things the National Oceanography Centre does to a wide audience.

This includes a 75″ Screen activated by a large turnwheel! and three 43″ touchscreens running our flagship museum software, Lightbox 3.

Lightbox 3 is our unique software package that includes a wide range of extremely flexible applications developed primarily with museum and heritage use in mind. Working closely with Smith and Jones Design Consultants who provided the graphical elements, we used Lightbox to create three unique Hotspot interactives which help demonstrate the significance of the organisation’s goals and the impact we have on our oceans in the present. This setup allows visitors to view videos of bizarre sea creatures, a timeline of significant events related to the Centre and a virtual tour of the RRS James Cook, viewable thanks to the ‘Web Browser’ App. You can see these in action below:

These new additions fit wonderfully with the overhaul to the reception area. Visitors are able to learn more about the value of the Ocean and its preservation in a fun and interactive manner.
