A new partnership between media campus Television City, Academy-Award-winning tech company Magnopus and Holocaust Museum LA will create new and engaging ways for people to learn about the Holocaust virtually.
On Jan. 27 Television City, the media campus owned and operated by Hackman Capital Partners announced it contributed $100,000 to the museum to sponsor the development of a virtual museum experience, designed by Magnopus. The shared virtual immersive experience will enable individuals anywhere in the world to engage with some of Holocaust Museum LA’s exhibits from the comfort of their own home.
While plans are still in the research and development stages, this is a big step forward for the museum. Beth Kean, executive director of Holocaust Museum LA, was first introduced to Magnopus through Television City and has been actively working with Magnopus for over a year to find innovative ways to incorporate immersive technology into their programs.
