Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim, Minister State of Antiquities, met Dr. Yasser El Shayeb (Director of the Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage- CULTNAT) to discuss the ideas of co-operation between them concerning documentation and preservation of the archaeological and cultural heritage. They reviewed during the meeting the possibility of implementing a project to portray three-dimensional images of the Egyptian antiquities by using laser to produce holograms on screens or in the open air without the use of display screens to promote for the less visited and known sites such as Hibs Temple, near Khargha Oasis in the western desert, both nationwide or internationally through the international travel markets which could be a factor to attract tourism and increase national income.
The minister also asked Dr. Yasser to contribute in implementation of Heritage display panorama in Sharm El Shiekh Museum (Under construction) through the Heritage documentation centre’s modern technologies to introduce the Egyptian history and civilisation through the ages. Dr. Yasser welcomed the idea and promised to implement the Culturama in one of the halls allocated for this purpose in the museum.
CULTURAMA, is a Cultural Panorama over nine screens, the first ever patented 9-projector interactive system. It is an innovative harmonized mix of cultural and natural heritage information, using an informative and attractive multimedia program and the latest display technology.
