In the first 5 years, the Google Institute Cultural (Google) scan to get to the 200 art works, but also with super high resolution image recording. In the past few months, Google Cultural Institute and scan another 1000 copies, thanks to the latest development of a Google camera, called Camera Art art camera.
This Camera Art is much simpler than other camera settings, so that the museum and other art institutions to achieve digital art and documentation more convenient. And, more importantly, Camera Art is also very fast.
In a few years of efforts to develop, Google to build a 20 Camera Art camera, but also to lend the camera to other people, to facilitate the digitization of art works. Art camera is like this: put it on the hanging in front of the painting of wall, the operator then camera pointed out that the boundary of the picture; camera will know how much the work area and prepare for a start shooting, and it can automatically move, to take a very close close-up picture. Then these images will be sent to Google server, and the synthesis of a separate file, a few hours later will be able to see.
Before the advent of the Camera Art camera, Google Cultural Institute, or those of the art institutions, are required to pay to find third party organizations, the use of image scanning equipment. Now that Google has its own camera, the cost of the entire process is much lower. And Google does not charge fees for the use of Camera Art, but encourages them to make the full use of this tool. Niccolai said that Google cultural students have to the world's art institutions outside the Camera Art, including Brazil, India, Hongkong, etc..
But Camera Art also has its limitations: it can deal with such a thing like a painting, but can not handle 3D works, or is particularly large works. So to deal with these things, Google still need to introduce other technologies.click hereVisit Google Cultural Institute website, which can be found in many famous works, including works from the Mo Nai, Okeefe, Van Gogh, etc..
