The Al Shaheed Park in Kuwait City is home to two museums, the Remembrance Museum and the Habitat Museum.

While the former focuses on the critical – and often violent – moments that shaped the nation, the latter is more concerned with its natural flora and fauna, containing a large number of interactive exhibitions and scenic recreations.
The museum’s centrepiece boasts a 26-metre audiovisual projection that displays the beauty of the different habitats of Kuwait with panoramic views.
Although this has remained a visitor favourite since its introduction, the museum’s management decided that a projector upgrade was required and turned to integrator Smartentity (SEC) which recommended Digital Projection’s new E-Vision 13000 projectors with Red Laser colour boosting technology.
The museum’s existing backbone dictated that seven E-Vision 13000 projectors were required to cover the 26-metre screen.
The company also provided four more E-Vision units that would be installed facing directly downwards – to cover a 4 x 3 metre table surface.
The content in the newly upgraded part of the museum charts thousands of years of the region’s natural history and was created by UK-based audiovisual specialist, Electrosonic.
“With the new Digital Projection units and their wider coverage, the edge blending has become more of a challenge because blending areas are much bigger,” said Youssef Ismail, deputy managing director of SEC. “We still have the same content, the same Dataton Watchout media servers, and the same Cisco networking, so some recalibration was needed. This was also the first time we have installed Digital Projection projectors with ColorBoost + Red Laser. It was a challenge, but we were able to overcome it and the area is certainly better off for the upgrade.”
Carrying out the integration without affecting the flow of visitors required a lot of night work, and it was assisted by a full-day visit to the museum by Digital Projection Middle East regional manager Rayan Soumsom who assisted with calibration and was in constant contact with a technical support team in the UK.
“Having seen Digital Projection’s full support during the installation, we want to continue working with them,” said Ismail. “The next project will surely require us to use the colour calibration service that Digital Projection offers, which colour-matches projectors before shipping them.”
