Vizara To Showcase Digital Tech In Heritage Preservation At Dubai Expo
The India exhibit will showcase 5 heritage monuments – the Stone chariot, Taj mahal, Kashi Vishwanath temple, Sun temple, and Rani Ki Vav.
Vizara, an Indian technology start-up is all set to showcase India’s rich heritage at the Expo 2021 Dubai in its most contemporary and new age form.
In association with the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Vizara will present five true-scale 3D printed replicas of Indian monuments with a linked augmented reality (AR) application.
Vizara has also created three films on Gandhi @150 which were shown at the virtual dome screen that opened at the India Pavilion on 2nd October 2021.
The Dubai Expo event creates an ecosystem where all stakeholders working in the digital and cultural heritage domain, come together and identify open issues in the management of heritage globally. The Indian monument models aim to present state-of-the-art technology being developed and tested in recreating monuments digitally to help in digital preservation and archival of the world heritage sites.
The Expo 2021 Dubai comes at a perfect juncture when India is celebrating 75 years of independence. Vizara’s proposition offers a creative and relevant solution to bringing Indian history to the fore leveraging new-age expressions.
Anupama Malik, Managing Director, Vizara Technologies, said, “It gives me immense pleasure and pride to be representing our country at a global platform like the Dubai Expo. It has been our endeavour in partnership with the DST and Ministry of Culture to make our heritage relevant in contemporary times and for the future. It is our duty to spread information and knowledge about our heritage, and technology makes the path easy in many ways. We are the only Indian company showcasing heritage monuments digitally, therefore, we look forward to receiving visitors from around the world and experiencing the power of AR, 3D printing, and our history.”
Vizara is the only Indian company that will showcase the Indian heritage monuments digitally, 4 out of these 5 are UNESCO world heritage sites and were digitally documented and then 3D printed.
