They learned about Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities’ artifact digitization projects, while experimentally connecting some precious artifacts of Hue royal court to reality-digital space. These efforts have generated encouraging results and being ready to be introduced to the general audience and visitors.
These activities will continue to deepen and comprehensively align with the Digital transformation program of Hue Monuments Conservation Center. In the near future, the center will continue to collaborate with relevant units to accelerate the progress of digital transformation, focusing on the development of practical technology platforms that apply virtual reality technology in heritage preservation, enhancing the value of heritage.
