Dassault Systèmes (DS) announced that its 3DVIA Virtools 3D application development platform is being utilized by the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria, to allow visitors to make a virtual journey through time and space. Treasured masterpieces or world cultural heritage sites can now be seen without posing a threat to their conservation. Thanks to 3DVIA technology, visitors learn in a new, intuitive way as they directly interact with the 3D scenarios of the proposed experiences.
The Ars Electronica Center is considered a prototype of the museum of the future for digital media and culture and new technologies. When it opened in 1996, the center was the first of its kind to house an immersive virtual reality room tailored to the public. When the City of Linz was declared Cultural Capital of Europe 2009 major renovation work preceded the re-opening of the New Ars Electronica Center. Today, visitors can enjoy an even more exciting hands-on experience of immersion and interactivity. 3DVIA Virtools emerged as the only 3D application development platform capable of meeting this challenge. The centers modernization program was behind schedule, which left very little time to create new 3D content and ready the new virtual reality space, called Deep Space, based on learning through fun and play. Because 3DVIA Virtools is technologically very mature, it was remarkably easy to use, fast and reliable, allowing us to finalize the first immersive experiences for the new facility on time for the opening of the Ars Electronic Center, said Horst Hörtner, Director of Ars Electronica Futurelab, the Ars Electronica Development Department.
