9:00 AM – 3:30 PM
National Institute of Physics and Vargas Museum.
The workshop will demonstrate the capabilities of Niji-S, a digital scanner developed by the team of Prof. Ari Ide-Ektessabi of the Advanced Imaging Technology Laboratory (AITL) of Kyoto University. It shall also foster discussions on possible collaborations for recording and research on cultural heritage.
Prof. Ide-Ektessabi’s team has been commissioned to perform several digitization campaigns around the world and in the process, he has had extensive experience in the intellectual property rights of data derived from cultural heritage objects.
Because of its mobile, configurable design, overall cheaper operation cost, and open platform, the Niji scanning system has been used in Japan, Korea, China, Egypt and the United Kingdom. The objects that have been digitized are a wide variety of artifacts from different civilizations and empires like Pharonic period, Coptic period, Islamic period, Greco-Roman period, Tang era, Edo era, the Renaissance, Meji era as well as the modern era. To date, more than 3000 important cultural heritage objects from different UNESCO World Heritage sites have already been digitized using the Niji scanning system.
The workshop is limited to 20 participants. To reserve a slot please preregister through the link below:
