Panasonic PT-DW17K2 3-Chip DLP Projectors bring magnificent story wall to life


The State Library of South Australia has launched an exciting new state-of-the-art projection installation using imagery and sound to tell stories exclusively from the library’s collections, treasures and exhibitions. When the library closes for the day and the lights go out, the State Library Forecourt comes alive with fascinating stories, characters, history and hidden gems projecting onto the exterior wall of the adjacent institute Building. Panasonic projector technology is key to bringing these wonderful stories, with the installation using two PT-DW17K2 projectors mounted to the building’s side wall.

Offering 17,000 lumens of brightness and rich features from an extraordinarily compact body.

Alan Smith, Director of the State Library, said, “I’m delighted to see this innovative exhibition experience at the Library, the first of its kind on any cultural institution in Australia. All the content you see on the Story Wall is from our collections and showcases the richness of our State’s history in such a unique and creatively engaging way.”

The Story Wall is a permanent exhibition and screens every night of the year, featuring stories specific to South Australia such as Christmas Pageant memories, Bob the railway dog, and Festivalia. In the same way a reader seeks out new books to read, the Story Wall will be progressively updated to bring new and exciting stories to encourage people to come inside the library and find out more.


Screening time: Every night of the year – sunset to midnight during summer
Location: State Library Forecourt
