MTG Hawkes Bay has recently upgraded to version 6 of Vernon Browser.
This includes the Bird’s Eye View, where all the collection images can be viewed on a single page as a large mosaic.
This feature is ideal as the home page for a touch-screen kiosk. The work that has been done to share their collection online can now be re-used for visitors to the physical venue. A large touch-screen table has been installed in the gallery, with the Bird’s Eye View as the home page.
Kiosk mode in Vernon Browser
We have put in a lot of work optimising the Bird’s Eye View, generating special thumbnail images for this page and caching the final view using Amazon’s Content Delivery Network.
MTG Hawkes Bay touch-screen kiosk
Vernon Browser includes the option to set a particular device into ‘kiosk mode’. Vernon Browser then changes some parts of the site, such as hiding the social sharing buttons which aren’t applicable on a shared public screen.
This allows MTG Hawkes Bay to publish their collection to a single site and use it to serve two different audiences.
