In collaboration with the RICH project and the ESAT labs (both KU Leuven) the Royal Museums of Art and History coordinates a pioneer project in which the multi-light Portable Light Dome is transformed into a Multi Spectral dome equipped with IR, Red, Green, Blue and UV LED light sources. This short video demonstrates the acquisition process with the fist developed MS microdome prototype of a Fayum mummy portrait (Egypt, Roman era) at the Brussels museum.
Early Summer 2013, via an easy to browse and use webviewer the images recorded and calculated via the Portable Light Dome system can be published and consulted online. As testcase the Leuven Cuneiform Collection can be viewed via the link below. For the online interactive images click the blue icons. This application works on all webbrowers supporting WebGL, in general these are Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
ESAT-PSI/VISICS has published several examples of objects captured with the Portable Light Dome on their website. With the downloadable Unity viewer you are able to rotate and relight the objects yourself.
The 17th Century Flemish painter, Anthony van Dyck, has been brought back to 3 dimensions, thanks to the latest image processing techniques. In cooperation with Prof. Katlijne Van der Stighelen of the Art History department of KU Leuven, the PSI-VISICS group has been studying a painting of the artist as a young man.
