In Arles, tradition and digital

The Muséon Arlaten has just opened its doors after ten years of work for a transformation carried out by the Tetrarc architectural firm. The aim was to keep the initial spirit of Frédéric Mistral for this museum of popular arts and traditions, which recounts two centuries of Camargue history.
Within the museum, more than sixty interactive devices were designed by Pierre Lavoie and produced by Mazedia, based on Wezit, the real conductor of multilingual content.

Multicartels : Discover more than 4000 objects

Throughout the visit, the museum is punctuated by digital labels that provide the public with an interpretation of the objects in the display cases. The content is very detailed and can be accessed by pointing to the object on the display case located in the interactive label. The system, based on Wezit, can be easily updated when the layout of the showcases is changed, or when new information or new languages are added.

“Enriched” game and interpretive devices

Numerous interactive devices are proposed on semi-transparent screens. They can be entertaining or educational, but always challenge the visitor to immerse him or her in the culture of Arles: the Provençal language, the use of the Rhône River to transport wood, etc.

Transparent screens

In order to interpret objects within a display case, some interactives use transparent screens. This allows the user to superimpose information on the object physically located in the background of the screen.

Dynamic display

Wezit is also responsible for updating the digital signage. It presents temporary exhibitions, gives practical information on opening times and presents the thematic conferences offered to the public.

Opening Wezit to third-party applications

Wezit is also used to update augmented reality devices made by another agency: onsitu.
