Connecting to Living History with Volumetric Video

Mar 16, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

The mid 19th century saw the introduction of photography as witness to history. Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War are approachable to us in the 21st century in many ways due to the use of the camera as witness. As we move forward, spatial computing offers a similar inflection point, and volumetric capture offers a way of connecting to the people who make history in ways that are entirely novel. This panel discusses their experience with capturing legacy, and where they think the future lies.
