Artec at the Acropolis Museum – Chicago Tribune
What goes on behind closed museum doors? Like all museums around the world, the Acropolis Museum in Athens closes on Mondays to allow for cleaning and restoration of its exhibits. The Chicago Tribune discovered how statues from the archaic period were digitalized with an Artec MHT.
The scanning was organized by CHESS Experience, a European project that aims to integrate research into digital storytelling at cultural sites. The objects scanned by IMA Solutions will be used for interactive iPhone and iPad applications by the Acropolis Museum in Athens.
IMA Solutions purchased the Artec MHT scanner from BOREAL, an authorized Artec reseller in France.
Over decades, the Iraqi people have faced bombing, war, and destruction – and the heritage that makes up the cradle of civilization has greatly suffered, too. The challenge here was to scan these lands as part of a film made by filmmaker Ivan Erhel.
An archaeologist needed a faster and more precise way to digitally document an important site where the ancient Colombian Muisca civilization was being explored.
From industrial design to manufacturing to healthcare or CGI, with Artec scanners, ‘impossible’ is a word that we have little reason to use.
