Dome Interactive Wins Award in Paris

February 12, 2016

What if, through a monument, you could travel back in time, rather than being a simple observer imagining the past? Picture the last resting place of Napoleon, and the beauty of his tomb. That’s exactly what we’ve helped deploy at the Army Museum in Paris with “Dôme interactive”, the new interactive multimedia tour on iPad mini. Art graphique et patrimoine (AGP) who created the content, have made it possible for visitors to see inside and around the Dome Chapel and the various tombs in a way never before experienced. We have provided all the equipment, and the staff who run the operation.

Using 3D modelling and the iPad Mini, the tour allows visitors to see what the original building looked like during the reign of Louis XIV, and look at an impressive reconstruction of Napoleon’s ceremonial coffin the day it was presented. And in a brave departure from traditional audio guides, the client chose to forego any audio commentary and instead place the emphasis on a shared, social, headphone free experience that visitors could experience together. The value of the 3D models in particular is undeniable and continues to be praised by visitors.

Just recently, at their annual event, the RNCI 2016, Clic France ran for the only 2nd time ever the ‘Prix Patrimoine & Innovation’ (Heritage & Innovation Awards). Out of 6 categories and 36 projects, the award for ‘Dispositifs in situ’ (On-site Tools) went to the Dome Interactive Tour.
