I went to a cool presentation on Monday at the Carroll County Governmental Complex. It was about a new 3D Projection company call 3DH. They were promoting the technology for business and education. I went for my company to investigate using this projection system for trade shows and possible design review meetings. Basically, it is a two projector system that projects on a flat screen. It’s really amazing to see how the image “jumps” off the screen and seems to come out of the screen all the way to the viewer. Here is some info from their site.
“3DH has developed a patented process to capture, produce, and display images in a revolutionary way. This process allows the brain to perceive the imagery as real, with no nausea or unpleasant side effects. …”
The equipment is extremely expensive, but it’s really awesome to see. But what got me really interested was a demo video clip they showed of the Holy Land in Israel. They have filmed different locations in Israel and are planning on showing the 3D movie and images in a traveling museum show called “From Abraham to Jesus”. It will be in Charlotte from March 14, 2007 – March 31, 2007. After seeing the intro video, I think this will be an awesome opportunity to see the geography and places of the Bible. This really will make it come to life and impact the way you view the stories of the Bible, especially for those who have not been able to travel to Israel. This is an awesome use of technology in helping people understand the Bible.
This groundbreaking touring exhibit features the largest most breathtaking, collection of Holy Land antiquities to ever hit U.S. soil. The multi-media exhibit combines the awe of over 240 priceless artifacts, some dating back to the time of Abraham, original video footage shot throughout the Holy Land, and the power of modern multimedia technology presentation, propelling visitors on a landmark walk through 2,500 years of Biblical history that they will never forget. This event will also feature the U.S. inaugural visit of some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Ossuary (bone box) of Simon the Cyrene, the man who carried the cross for Jesus. This stunning 30,000 square foot walk-through exhibit will travel to 28 cities nationwide, beginning September 2006 and concluding December 2008.
