Business Challenge

Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping made a decision to overhaul its Surakhani tanker, which had carried crude oil and oil products for decades, and to transform it into the first interactive digital museum in Azerbaijan. Hence, the ship needed a unified management system, as it was to be used as an art space. The project required the entire museum service to be digital, including its audio and video materials, and to have a necessary data storage infrastructure.

ED designed a digital data storage centre for the first and, so far, only interactive museum in the country. Then ED created a general information management system for the museum to enable optimal management of the museum. The video stream control system allowed for secure transmission and display of information, as well as for its integration into the digital networks.
