Salzburg Museum & spo-comm – Tradition supported by modern technology

In the Salzburg Museum valuable art objects, aesthetic presentation, interesting content and multimedia installations form a harmonious whole. The Salzburg Museum is proof that a modern museum can be informative and entertaining at the same time. The Salzburg Museum was awarded the European Museum Prize 2009 and the Austrian Museum Prize 2007 for its successful concept.

Task

The exhibition concepts of the Salzburg Museum are based on an interplay between the material presence of the object and the corresponding media support. One thing is certain: The focus must be on the content, the presentation technology should remain barely noticeable to the visitors. The most important hardware requirements were silent, flat, easy to assemble and universally applicable. A system, as far as possible without moving parts, should ensure a high level of reliability and thus, remain “invisible” not only to the visitors but also to the technical management of the museum.

Product / solution

Several of our models could have met the requirements, but in order to be able to display sophisticated graphic content, the performance of the system had to be right. So, the choice fell on the WINDBOX III equipped with an SSD. The ultra-low-voltage Core 2 Duo CPU and the fanless and flat design of the system were able to convince the museum staff after a few test installations.

In order to inspire the 800,000 annual museum visitors, new presentation options and innovations are always sought after. With the WINDBOX III, a reliable base for supporting the exhibition concept was found and successfully integrated.

Above all spo-comm’s management is very pleased about the strong commitment and voice they have during the development process in the meanwhile. [description] =>

Michael Sporrer, CEO spo-comm GmbH, says: “Since 2008 we work very close with MSI and are nowadays the most important partner for IPC systems in Europe. Our cooperation is now that trustful and close that the design of the products in the systems division bases on our suggestions mostly.”

While housing and connections are identical to the predecessor model, the mini pc’s functional inside is available in two different variants: On the one hand as a basic model with an Intel Celeron CPU for WINDBOX newcomers, on the other hand as top model with a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU. What both models have in common: They run with the operating systems Windows 8, Windows 7 Embedded and Ubuntu 12.04. The basic model will be less expensive than the previous WINDBOXIII – which will still be available of course – the top model’s prize will be a little bit higher.

As usual the latest model of the mini PC specialists captivates through its simple elegance, good design and lightness as the WINDBOXIII+ weighs about 1,5 kilogramme and therefore is simply to handle in terms of installation. Furthermore it requires less space at the same time. For those who want to see more details, please have a closer look at the spo-book WINDBOXIII+ nearly in real in a 360 degree view with zoom function at the website's product presentations.

spo-book WINDBOXIII+ is probably available for spo-comm partners exclusively in August 2012, all others can buy it at the beginning of September 2012.

23 Dec 2012 Array ( [id] => 634 [title] => LMU Munich and MOVE T56N – Researching under extreme conditions [authorId] => [active] => 1 [shortDescription] => The Ludwig-Maximilians university in Munich is one of the leading universities in Europe and has an over 500 year-long tradition. With its broad and fully differentiated range of subjects, it has great potential for innovative basic research - whether it is in the core of the individual disciplines or in the inter- and transdisciplinary network of different fields of knowledge. The success of the LMU in the excellence initiative confirms the university's outstanding research performance. [description] =>

Task 

What was needed, was a suitable Mini-PC system for a measuring station that measures and analyzes the snow water equivalent and the moisture content of the snow 2500 meters above sea level.

In addition to the constant availability, the challenge was to cope with the restricted infrastructure and the extreme climatic conditions that prevail there. 

The technical adaptability to extreme conditions was the most important criterion for the scientists at LMU Munich.

Product / solution 

The perfect system is the MOVE T56N. Next to withstanding temperatures from -30°C to +60°C with a passive cooling, the system has an input voltage range from 9V to 36V.

The voltage converter, optimized for the automotive sector, reliably compensates for temporary irregularities and, with an additional fuse, ensures the protection of the entire system. 

Another advantage is the high-quality workmanship of the internal and external plug connections, which do not loosen even in the event of vibrations or strong thermal differences.

Conclusion

A Mini-PC that was developed for extraordinary burdens in vehicles, also withstands the extreme conditions in a measuring station in alpine mountains. Like that, the water content of the snow in this area is no secret.
