Armenian Heritage: A Virtual Pilgrimage
Thursday, May 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
A presentation by internationally renowned TUMO Center for Creative Technologies and leading preservation non-profit CyArk about their collaborative project to digitally preserve Armenia’s cultural heritage using state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology. Tumo and CyArk have joined forces to digitally preserve Armenia’s cultural heritage and train students in the principals and practice of 3D scanning for cultural heritage preservation. The beautiful and rock-hewn Geghard Monastery in Armenia was the first historical site to be digitally preserved through the collaboration and they plan to expand the cutting edge program to additional historical sites in the next year.
The presentation is hosted by ANCA Professional Network and is part of the ANCA-PN Talks series.
