The Event

Visitors to this year’s Museum Association Conference and exhibition at Manchester Central Convention Complex enjoyed two days of practical workshops, presentation and access to view solutions from over 80 different suppliers to the Museum sector.

The Pure AV team had an exciting couple of days at the exhibition, joining leading projection manufacturer Epson to showcase a range of solutions ideal for creative story telling and showcasing exhibits.


New from Pure AV

The Story Scanner is a new solution from Pure AV that allows visitors to take an object and place it into a scanning area to find out more about its background story. Provide visitors with interesting videos, images and facts about the object they are holding. Encourage interaction and let your visitors focus on the areas of information that interest them the most.


The system is customisable and content can be quickly and easily changed or updated. If you are interested in finding out more about this solution please fill in the contact form below and we will get in touch to explore how the system can be used in your environment.

Get in Touch

We hope you enjoyed the exhibition. We certainly enjoyed the many discussions that took place with delegates. For those that didn't manage to see us (and even those that did), please feel free to get in touch with us using the form below.

The technology on show

Bring your exhibits to life, and take visual creativity to the next level with Epson’s range of laser and lamp-based projectors, transforming the way your audiences look at museums and galleries.

EB-L1755U & ELPLX02 Ultra Short Throw Lens (click here)

Create stunning large scale visuals with Epson's 15,000 lumens 3LCD Laser Projector

Laser-sharp images

Ensure that your presentations, images and video pack a punch with the vivid, sharp projection offered by this 3LCD laser projector. Designed for larger venues, its high resolution WUXGA images are vivid and bright, even in daylight, while inorganic phosphor wheel technology provides superior light and heat resistance to deliver excellent reliability that lasts for up to 83,000 hours¹.

4K enhancement

For a next-level viewing experience, the projector features ingenious 4K enhancement technology, giving images exceptional sharpness and clarity, and ensuring that text in presentations is clearly legible.

Flexible positioning

Thanks to a wide range of motorised lenses, including optional ultra-short-throw (UST) lens, the projector benefits from true 360° installation flexibility, allowing it to be placed virtually anywhere - without loss of brightness or distortion of image. The projector also has a built-in camera to ensure accurate calibration and capture diagnostic images (this can be fully disabled to prevent remote access).

Versatile new software

All models in the EB-L1000 series can take advantage of free Epson Professional Projector Tool software from December 2017. It allows you to set up multi-projector installations straight out of the box, simply and quickly, as well as utilising advanced techniques such as projection-mapping and edge-blending

Laser signage solution

Bring displays to life with a scalable image up to 130 inches

A large image size of up to 130 inches combines with a bright, sharp 4,000-lumen WUXGA resolution to offer a great ultra-short-throw signage solution. It's ideal for museums and galleries wanting to use striking projection as part of exhibits, or display visitor information that changes regularly. It's equally useful for retailers wanting to display eye-catching information and advertising, and corporates looking for an ultra-short-throw meeting room solution.

Affordable, reliable display solution

The EB-700U is an affordable display solution that that will work reliably with minimal regular maintenance. Thanks to laser technology there are no lamps to replace, and its inorganic panel and phosphor display wheel are so reliable that Epson offers an up to five-year/20,000-hour warranty.

Versatile and easy to install

Compact and light enough to be installed by a single technician, the EB-700U offers the flexibility to fulfil the most exacting brief, and the versatility to work in narrow or awkward spaces. Its ultra-short-throw design enables projection of large images from a short distance, even in narrow areas such as shop windows, plus it can be rotated 360 degrees in any direction, and supports portrait projection.

Moverio - Augmented Reality

A visit to our stand gave visitors the chance to experience Epson's Moverio BT350 smart glasses.

No longer do visitors need to imagine how a long-extinct dinosaur may have walked or roared, or how a 2,000-year-old statue may have once looked. Using the power of augmented reality, these things can be brought to life in front of a viewer’s eyes, automatically overlaid onto exhibits, ruins, statues and more.

Enhanced Interactive Technology

The brightest Si-OLED-powered, binocular see-through smart glasses* designed specifically for commercial uses, such as visitor experiences.

The BT-350's cutting edge technology enables augmented content to be immersively overlaid over the real world, making culture, events, performance venues and factory tours more accessible and exciting, without distracting visitors from exhibits and attractions.

Designed for multiple users and heavy usage

The BT-350 offers a durable build and comfortable ergonomics, meaning it can be worn repeatedly for long periods by lots of visitors, in complete comfort, no matter their head shape and size, or if they wear glasses. Up to six hours battery life gives visitors plenty of time to explore.

High contrast for true AR

With the BT-350, unused display space appears truly transparent thanks to our Si-OLED micro display technology and its high contrast ratio of 100,000:1. This means augmented content can be immersively overlaid onto the real world, making culture more accessible and exciting.

Amazing image quality and performance

720p HD display and high brightness ensure a crisp image and vivid colours to bring exhibits to life. The powerful Intel® Atom™ x5 1.44GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB RAM ensures smooth performance. Built-in connectivity and sensors include Bluetooth Smart, Wi-Fi, Miracast and motion sensors. The smart glasses can also deliver 3D content.

Easy management and operation

The BT-350 can be used both outdoors and indoors thanks to the flip-up shade, or completely hands free thanks to the controller pouch and neck strap. Two years warranty and additional warranty are available on purchase via our Cover+ packs.

Several units can be charged and updated simultaneously via an optional charger, making device management easy.
