FAMSF Improves Museum Access with Beam Device

Patrons with disabilities that prevent them from visiting the de Young in person can now visit the museum remotely with the use of a computer with a camera and a Wi-Fi connection. The new Beam Tour program uses an ambulatory device known as Beam and allows for an independent and interactive experience. The device’s sensitive lenses allow the offsite visitor to see the art in high resolution, while its microphone, screen, and speakers enable interaction in real time with guides or friends in the museum.
