Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition Leverages Pro AV for Immersive Storytelling

Creators of the Broadway musical Hamilton aren’t done giving their man his shot. Responding to audience demand for more, they partnered with manufacturers, integrators, and historians to create the traveling showcase Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition. The technological spectacle thoughtfully presents an immersive exhibit blending art, history, and education surrounding Alexander Hamilton, our country’s founding fathers, and the events of the American Revolution.

Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition is a collaboration among Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, creative director and set designer David Korins, producer Jeffrey Seller, orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, and Yale University historian and historical advisor to the exhibit Joanne B. Freeman. Harvard Law professor and historian Annette Gordon-Reed provided historical consultation.

To match the musical’s high production values, creators of this Hamilton project partnered with exhibition consultants IMG and integrator Design Electronics (DE). The exhibit, which opened in Chicago in April, is enjoying wide critical acclaim for the way its creators were able to blend art, history, drama, and education into one spectacular experience.

HOW TO SELECT THE SIZE OF YOUR HOME ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

The technology available to us today is fantastic and a great value. For less than the cost of a one-week vacation, you can have a home theatre system that you can enjoy for 10+ years.

One of the questions I get all of the time is: how big should my TV or my theatre screen be? Well… they can be BIGGER than you think these days. With the quality of the pictures and the content being filmed and recorded with high definition and ultra-high definition cameras, we don’t see the flaws of film and TV like we used to. As a general rule of thumb, I like to stick with 2-1/2 to 3 times the screen height to your seat.

So in other words, a 110” diagonal screen is 54 inches tall. Using my rule of thumb, you could sit comfortably 11-13-1/2 feet away from this screen size. This rule of thumb is loosely based on sitting in the middle of the commercial movie cinema (where most people like to sit). I also get the question about quality. If I have a 110-inch or 120-inch screen, can the picture quality be as good as an LED TV? The answer is absolutely.

A couple of the issues with LED and LCD projectors have always been the fan noise and the need to replace bulbs, which can be quite costly. Epson has recently launched an incredibly new BULBLESS Reflective Laser technology, The Elite Pro Cinema LS10000 home theatre projection and 4K Enhancement Technology for the ultimate movie theatre experience. This projector is unreal: it is super quiet, and the picture is jaw dropping with inky blacks, rich deep reds and greens, super bright and stunningly detailed. It has NO bulb!! If given the choice between a TV and watching hockey, football, movies and concerts in full HD enhanced to 4K on a 110-200 inch screen, there is no contest. It also has some cool features like motorized lens memory position for zoom and focus positions for 16:9 or 4:3 projection areas, and 2.35:1 wide cinema ratio for the true movie buff.
