By bringing the story to life, Panasonic technology is helping visitors to imagine what it would have been like to live and work at the wartime bank.

Panasonic technology is used to evoke the feelings of those hearing Neville Chamberlain's pronouncement that Britain was at war with Germany. Thanks to Panasonic’s ultra-short-throw lens, large-scale projections will light up the dining room ceiling from a very short distance.

Back projection through the mothballed fabric of Lady Bearsted’s four-poster bed adds atmosphere to her wartime story, and this technique is also used to animate the story of Lord Bearsted’s work in the Special Operations Executive.

In the long gallery an interactive touch screen will bring to life the stories of what M. Samuel & Co was doing for the war effort. And it’s also Panasonic projection and display technology that powers the wartime cinema.

Did you know Panasonic is a corporate partner of the National Trust?
