With more than 850 000 visitors in four months at the Hong Kong Science Center, exhibition “Egyptian Mummies from the British Museum: Exploring Ancient Lives” continues its international  Asian tour at the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan from 14th of November 2017 to February 2018. Six Egyptian mummies with more than 200 artworks from the British Museum’s collection are on display. Visitors can explore in 3D the inside of the six Egyptian mummies thanks to the collaboration between IMA Solutions and the Egypt & Sudan British Museum Department team: 3D CT scanning of the mummies, high performance data processing and cutting edge 3D visualizations.

IMA Solutions collaborates with the British Museum since 10 years to create interactive exhibitions using the last 3D technologies: high end xray scanning, high performance computing and the use of the last computer graphics techniques.

We made a 3D scanning mission with our swedish partner Interspectral to 3D scan a wide variety of artworks and artifacts nearby the Norköpping city: historical Vuitton trunks, outdoor Vikings carvings and a reliquary from the medieval era housed at the Linköpings Slotts- & Domkyrkomuseum. These 3D digitizations will provide to Swedish archeologists new opportunities to study these artifacts and to digitally preserve their cultura heritage.
