Training: Two-Day Workshop with the Portable Light Dome System  

On 13-14 December 2021, VIEW, the KU Leuven Core Facility for Heritage Science and Digitisation Technologies, will be organizing a two-day workshop with the Portable Light Dome system.  

The Portable Light Dome system is a dome-shaped structure allowing the automated capture of objects from a fixed position with varying light angles. In total, 228 captures are made in five different spectra: IR, red, green, blue and UV. After processing, interactive visualization of the topography is possible with the five individual spectra or a combination of three (RGB or false color). An open source online tool has been developed for the visualization and dissemination of these datasets: Pixel+ viewer 

The workshop will be a combination of lectures, demonstrations, visits, and hands-on work with the Microdome, the software, and the viewer. Participants will have the opportunity to work with KU Leuven’s heritage, rare book, and manuscript collections. 

The workshop is geared toward heritage scientists, technical art historians, museum collection researchers, manuscript scholars, book and bookbinding historians, book and paper conservators, object conservators, curators, archaeologists, historians, epigraphists, imaging specialists, photographers.
