E-mail Print PDF

AUSTIN, TX -- Electrosonic helped the Bullock Texas State History Museum upgrade its 190-seat 4D Texas Spirit Theater recently. Although the original AV system, also installed by Electrosonic, was still functional, the gear was also a dozen years into its life cycle. For the refurbishment, Electrosonic replaced the existing show control system with an Alcorn McBride V16 Pro show controller and swapped out HD-MPEG video players in favor of a Dataton WATCHOUT video playback system. The project was complete in time for the Nov. 2013 premiere of the short film, Shipwrecked, which supports a new exhibition on the excavation of the barque La Belle, which sank off the Texas coast in 1686.
