Solution – Museum & Gallery
Museums and galleries are commonly used both the hardware and software from Weiss AG to record existing exhibitions or physical spaces digitally, manage digital collections, produce virtual exhibition or tour, and further, using all of these digital resources to produce new contents and materials with other parties and contractors. The digitalisation process supports better resource management and project management for the art institution and unleashes new ways to exchange or share information via new media.
The Civetta is used to capture 360×180° HDR panorama images for indoor and outdoor areas, perfectly suitable for digitally replicating exhibition hall, large-scale artwork, physical buildings, and outdoor scenes. The VR tour and 3D models captured by the Civetta, including geographical location and measurement data, are essentials metadata for developing the digital twin portfolios. The I-Detics photogrammetry camera is used to create a customised digital capture system for artworks and collections.
All data captured can be stored and managed in the Visual Asset Management System. The system combines complex measuring techniques and advanced data processing with a user-friendly interface and various options for individual system customisation. The result is a highly flexible, high-performance system delivering easily understood condition information straight to the user. Along with the image and 3D models captured in the field, other digital assets are collectively managed in the Visual Asset Management System VAM2 provided by Weiss AG.
A comprehensive digital twin of the cultural heritage can be produced via the VAM2. A multidisciplinary group can work collaboratively to support the development and use of digital heritage files. 2D/3D data of the heritage can be captured over time for comparison, analysis and evaluation purposes.
Here are some of the assets that might be collected to create a digital twin for the platform.
Digital collection management for museums and art galleries
Online curation and exhibition planning across different disciplinaries
Virtual reality museum tours
Virtual exhibitions based on real-360 VR contexts
• Virtual exhibitions based on a 3D rendered environment
Virtual gaming and new media productions
