One of the oldest cathedrals in Wales, St Asaph was recently awarded major Heritage Lottery Funding to protect and promote its important Welsh heritage. The cathedral will soon be able to share its history with all its visitors, bringing the museum’s artefacts into the 21st century for younger visitors, and including those who would not normally be able to enjoy a museum visit.
As part of the project the Cathedral engaged specialist media developers Fuzzy Duck to create a smartphone app. This is being delivered by them as a turnkey solution pre-installed on an Info-Point unit. Alistair Monaghan, Head of Digital at Fuzzy Duck, says “We already had experience of using Info-Point as a platform to deliver creative media. The advantage for our clients is that we can reliably deliver a mix of smartphone apps and other digital content at any location, and don’t need to worry at all about connectivity. Religious buildings can serve visitors very effectively, but in a discreet way, without compromising their primary mission or distracting from their services.”
