Inside the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science, BenQ is bringing some of the action to life. Well, larger-than-life.

Designed to create a slew of interactive experiences, the new 180,000-square-foot, $185 million museum opened its doors on December 1, 2012. BenQ projectors are a big part of that process.

BenQ’s MW860USTi short-throw projectors are being used in the museum’s Sports Hall to create a “running wall” exhibit. The setup has six of those projectors and uses image blending that helps create a 55-foot interactive exhibit where museum visitors test their speed along a 50-foot track against projections of dinosaurs, animals, and professional athletes.

BenQ’s MW860USTi works well in the setup, thanks to 3,000 ANSI lumens and sustained color quality in short-throw settings

“Since our recent opening, the interactive running wall has become a popular exhibit at the museum,” says Justin Ashford, director of technology and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. “You can feel the excitement as families, especially kids, compare their speed alongside vivid projections of Dallas Cowboys’ Running Back Felix Jones, a full-size cheetah, a gigantic Tyrannosaurus Rex, and gymnast Emily Richardson.

“We are extremely happy with the quality of the exhibit and performance of the BenQ projectors. With this interactive display, we have created a truly immersive and memorable experience for our visitors, and it’s just one of the many highlights that the Perot Museum has to offer.”
