QuickTime Virtual Reality in Cultural Heritage Presentation
James Devine , University of Glasgow, Scotland
http://www.hunterian.gla.ac.uk

Session: QTVR

The use of computer-based display of cultural resources provides museums, galleries, and related organizations with an opportunity to present their resources in an innovative and interactive way to remote users, and to supplement in-house exhibits with on-line resources. This introductory level workshop will provide participants with an overview

of the issues involved, and will examine the potential of QTVR in heritage management contexts, using examples from Glasgow University's Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, the REVELATION project, and others. Participants will receive hands-on instruction in photographing panoramas and object movies in QTVR and in stitching a basic QTVR panorama file.
