          Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for the advancement of applied research has created a “Virtual Heritage Expo” as a contribution to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018: It consists of several virtual exhibition halls presenting the research and technology development performed at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for the protection of historic monuments and artefacts. Over hundred individual objects, 3D models of significant artefacts from 20,000 years of human history, virtual projection screens and complex installations are used in this exhibition. The Virtual Heritage Expo can be visited in two ways: By individual visits using Virtual Reality glasses or as a multi-user experience, by watching a virtual tour on an ultra-high resolution (2000 × 7000 pixel) curved screen. Different technologies have been used to create the content for these virtual experiences: Render engines for high resolution CGI, Lidar and 3D scanners for scanning 3D objects, 360° cameras with up to 10.000 × 3.500 pixel resolution and a volumetric studio, to create dynamic 3D models of persons.
