Digital Heritage Interpretation with the Visitor Information Service BOX

It is a fact of modern life that devices such as tablets and smart phones are the medium of choice when it comes to engaging the interest of technologically active and younger people.

VIS-BOX promises to bridge the gap between the important messages to be given by our vital establishments and the learning choices of a technologically modern society.

VIS-BOX can provide real time, searchable texts such as hymn sheets, book and psalm readings along with exciting multi media presentations and historically educational walk throughs.

VIS-BOX generates a local, independent network that devices such as phone, tablets and laptops can connect to. Once connected, a visitor interacts with the media which can include video, audio, images, slideshows and documents, that have been prepared for the specific environment, via the internet browser of the device. There is no internet connection required or made available to the visitor and no network costs are incurred.

A case study can be seen on this web site where the progressive thinking and engaging leader of Polesworth Abbey; which has deeply set roots in history; has engaged the local community with a VIS-BOX, providing videos of historically important events such as archaological digs, through to interpretive media of how life was at different periods in history. The VIS-BOX has even given the congregation a chance to feed back and comment , whether that be by complementing a particular sermon or highlighting matters of importance.

With an ever increasing need to engage the attention of a technological generation, products such as VIS-BOX can provide an establishment of social or historical importance with the edge that they need to recruit and retain a younger audience.
