SCALEX is an easy to use toolbox for museums and companies that deal with the creation of digital content. With SCALEX it is possible to combine digital content, as for example texts, images, videos and audios, with real exhibition objects. In addition to that SCALEX also supports the creation of purely virtual exhibitions. The presentation of the digital media is directly coupled to the interests of the specific visitor. Exhibitions that are enhanced with digital media open up new interaction possibilities and thereby offer the visitors a completely new experience during exhibition visits. With the help of SCALEX museums can realize adaptive, knowledge based exhibitions that use the possibilities of the digital world. The use of SCALEX is not strictly limited to museums. It is useful wherever the goal is to present information that is adapted to the viewers needs. This includes Fairs, Visitor Information Systems and many more.
