Abstract

A research team engaged in a user experience and usability evaluation of a large wall screen display for multimedia exhibitions. This process included two concept tests and two task-based usability tests to understand how storytelling, usability and user experience intersect on a large wall screen presentation. This approach illuminated key requirements for designing for large wall screens that supports multimedia storytelling.
