What We Do

MediaMerge's experience in the museum world has been both fun and challenging. We take simple exhibits and make them extraordinary using cutting-edge technology and our talented AVL team. We're your partners throughout the process including the creative development, the content production and the design and installation of the technology. From the exploration of the initial idea to guests engaging with the exhibits, we're with you every step of the way.


Over the last decade we’ve pioneered a number of technologies and techniques that are truly unique in their approach to solving problems in our industry. These technologies have been used in projects across the country, and a few of them are inspiring audiences on the other side of the globe.

ShowSource Media Server - To state it simply, the ShowSource media server is a very powerful computer with software that can play audio and video files for specialty cinema presentation, museum exhibits and themed-attractions. The software also includes a timeline-based show control system that can be used to automate lights, playback announcements, and trigger special effects.

Control Apps for TabletsMediaMerge has been developing control applications for sound, video and lighting systems for the last ten years, but the new possibilities presented by the advent of portable, tablet computers is truly exciting.

Blended Projection - Blended projection can often provide a great solution for projection in spaces with limited ceiling height. By pushing elements out horizontally, more content can appear on a screen without increasing the screen’s reach upward. Also, blended projection has application on curved screens and dome theaters where the unique geometry of the screen makes standard projection difficult.

Holographic Projection - Holographic projection has been used in a wide range of venues including live teleconferencing, international music awards shows, and museums. MediaMerge’s implementation of holographic projection at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and the temporary exhibits for the Boston Symphony Orchestra represent some of the best examples of the practical application of this technology in the United States to-date.

Talking Portraits - Imagine walking into a portrait gallery, and while you quietly contemplate the historic significance of the work, the character in the portrait springs into life and begins to speak. This twist is the reality of MediaMerge’s Living Canvas™ Talking Portrait technology.
