Content Conversion Specialist’s MagicBox is a revolutionary fusion of display cabinet and fascinating hands-on experience. It is set to introduce a new era of how libraries and archives will be able to give access to their valuable yet fragile materials.

The MagicBox technology is installed in an illuminated display cabinet. It produces a transparent and touch sensitive layer of digital content that visitors can browse while at the same time having full sight of the original item behind glass. Rare publications, up to now limited to a look-only display spread, will be fully tangible at the fingertips of the audience, who can virtually leaf through the superimposed pages.

The MagicBox app that operates the digital content not only lets you display and browse digitized print media, but also image galleries, 3D views, and movies. Display cabinets will become pulsating windows to a world of wonders, enriching the exhibition not only with more information, but by making it a truly memorable visiting experience.
