Christie projectors enhance exhibitions at Lisbon’s National Museum of Ethnology
Christie has announced the integration of its laser projectors into Portugal’s National Museum of Ethnology as part of the museum’s digital transformation initiative.

This project, executed by Christie partner Total AV, represents an upgrade to the museum's AV capabilities, enhancing the quality and impact of its permanent exhibitions.

The museum has equipped its spaces with seven Christie Inspire Series DWU760-iS and three Christie Captiva DWU500S projectors. These models were selected to meet the museum’s current and future needs for high-quality audiovisual presentations.

“As part of our digital transformation, we endeavored to equip the museum with reliable equipment. Our new laser projectors allow us to face the future with peace of mind,” says Dr. Paulo Ferreira da Costa, director of the Ethnological Museum of Lisbon. “Our existing equipment was outdated and could no longer meet today’s AV needs.”

The National Museum of Ethnology opened in 1965 and its collections are representative of 380 cultures from 80 countries and include photos, sound, and film archives from the extensive fieldwork surveys done by the museum.

The majority of the new projectors are used in the museum’s permanent exhibitions and its large auditorium.

Luis Carmo, from Total AV, says: “The various AV projections immerse visitors in high-impact images which are only possible thanks to the power of the projection, giving great dynamism to the museum, captivating the public and creating an atmosphere full of colours and impressive content.”

Total AV’s post-sale support has been exceptional, according to the museum’s director. “Fortunately, it couldn’t have gone better. Luis Carmo didn’t just make the sale; he provided comprehensive after-sales support and training, which has been fundamental and invaluable for us.”
