Zoom webinar at 11:00 CEST on Monday 4th April 2022.

Do you work in Cultural Heritage and are considering or using complex visual assets to showcase your movable objects and artefacts? The Visual Media Service (VMS) provided by the ARIADNEplus Project enables large datasets to be processed and displayed seamlessly and quickly, enabling end users to view and explore in detail:

  • 3D objects ranging from size from a few mm to tens m, e.g. from beads up to statues and friezes.
  • Large, high resolution images (that can’t usually be easily displayed online), e.g. gigapixel photographs of frescoes, paintings, or any other planar artwork.
  • Relightable images (RTI and PTM) commonly used on artefacts such as coins.
  • Sets of images such as a time series or sequence of pages relating to the same item.

The VMS technology provides a full set of interactive tools for the displayed object(s) and can be accessed for free through the ARIADNE Portal. As such, this service provides a valuable tool for the publication, exploration and dissemination of various aspects of Cultural Heritage.

The Workshop, which lasts around one hour, will be focused on the latest improvements of the Visual Media Service, and in particular on the brand new setup system for the advanced management of 3D content. It will start with a brief introduction of the ARIADNEplus Project followed by a presentation of the Visual Media Service with some case studies and use case scenarios and will be followed by an open discussion for all involved.

This event is aimed at people working to promote cultural heritage in museums and galleries, in heritage preservation and conservation, heritage-based regional development, cultural tourism, creative businesses providing heritage presentation services and products, Open Source software development and research, etc.
