SCANNING AT THE STATE HERMITAGE MUSEUM
This time Drake Midi helped the State Hermitage Museum in their project: digitization of the cultural and historical heritage. The purpose of the project – cultural preservation of the key exhibits.
Worldwide, cultural preservation is the matter of highest importance. Modern technologies allow the museums to not only digitize rare art pieces, but also make their exhibits more available to the wider audience (photo galleries, online archives and digital libraries). 3D scanning widens the possibilities of digitization and brings it to the new level.
Our specialist scanned the staircase fence, the door and the bas-relief. The scanning took a couple of minutes and Drake Midi easily coped with the objects. Watch the video to see the scanner catching the smallest details!
