Project: Supply of Orpheo Touch multimedia guides for Andy Warhol exhibit

Location: Whitney Museum of American Art (United States)

Year: 2019

Orpheo is stoked to announce our new partnership with the Whitney Museum, recognized as the foremost institution for 20th-century and contemporary art in the United States. The Whitney Museum has chosen our cutting-edge technology to enhance the visitor experience during the two-year tenure of the Andy Warhol exhibit, running until March 2019 in New York. Specifically, Orpheo will be providing 200 Orpheo Touch units, the latest innovation in our extensive range of devices.

The Orpheo Touch combines the advanced capabilities of a high-end smartphone with the durability essential for an audio guide in a museum setting. Boasting an ultra-clear screen, the Touch introduces an array of features that go beyond traditional audio guides. Visitors can now enjoy augmented reality experiences, interactive games, sign language videos, and other functionalities tailored to meet the diverse needs of a contemporary museum audience.
