Events Sponsored by the Excellence Cluster TOPOI and Staatliche Museen zu Berlin: Lecture and Workshop

TOPOI Institute and Staatliche Museen logos

1. “Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Its Application in Museum and Field Contexts” (Lecture)

This lecture by Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer of Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) will present recent work in computational photography as it relates to cultural heritage. The talk will include examples of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), algorithmic rendering, multispectral imaging, and photogrammetry. (Registration for the free lecture)

Berlin, Germany: Monday, October 22, 2012, 7:00–8:30 pm

2. “Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) for cultural heritage documentation” (Workshop)

The CHI team will present two identical half-day workshops (October 16 and 22). These morning workshops focus on Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and include introductory lectures as well as RTI demonstrations. They are open to anyone interested in RTI technology and its practical application. (Registration for the free workshops)

Berlin, Germany: Tuesday, October 16, 2012 and Monday, October 22, 2012, 9:30 am–12:30 pm

Mark Mudge to Participate

CHI President Mark Mudge will participate in a new forum presented by the Gordon Research Conferences, entitled “Scientific Methods in Cultural Heritage Research: Non-Destructive Imaging and Micro-Analysis in Cultural Heritage.” The conference agenda aims to advance the frontiers of science and knowledge connected with the material components, structures, and degradation processes of cultural heritage objects.

Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, VT: July 29–August 3, 2012 (see the conference web site for details)


NCPTT 3D Digital Documentation Summit: Presentation and Demo

1. “Advances in computational photography techniques for cultural, historic, and natural history materials” (Video and transcript)

The CHI team—Mark Mudge, Carla Schroer, and Marlin Lum— present advances in robust new imaging tools from the emerging science known as Computational Photography. Included are the latest developments in Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), Algorithmic Rendering (AR), camera calibration, and methods of image-based generation of textured 3D geometry. The talk includes RTIs of subjects under magnification using macro- and microscopic optics, as well as updates in viewing technology. New software tools to better collect and manage the metadata yielded in RTI and AR processing will also be discussed.

San Francisco, CA: Wednesday, July 11, 2012, 4:00 pm PDT

2. “Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Algorithmic Rendering (AR)” (Demo)

The CHI team demonstrated the capture of a photographic sequence to be used for RTI and/or AR using off-the-shelf DSLR camera equipment. The demo provided an overview of the software pipeline for working with images and producing and analyzing RTIs. The software is free and open source.

San Francisco, CA: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 3:40 pm PDT


SPNHC 2012: Presentation and Democamp

1. “Advances in the computational photography tools: Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Algorithmic Rendering (AR)” (Presentation)

CHI's Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer present an overview of recent developments in Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), including multi-spectral RTI; Algorithmic Rendering (AR), which uses the same data sets as RTI; and new software tools to better collect and manage the metadata surrounding the creation of RTI and AR. Also discussed is the “digital lab notebook”, an essential element in the generation of scientifically reliable and reusable digital representations, enabling data reuse, long-term digital preservation, and aiding in physical conservation.

Yale University, New Haven, CT: 9:45 am, Thursday, June 14, 2012, in the College Room (see the conference web site for other information)

2. “Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) for empirical documentation of natural history collections” (DemoCamp)

CHI's Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer demonstrate how Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) has the potential to revolutionize the documentation, treatment, and research of natural history and art museum collections. Included will be an overview of the inexpensive and easy-to-learn image capture methodology and image processing based on RTI open-source software. Examples of the resulting RTI images using the RTIViewer, a viewing and analysis tool, will also be presented.

Yale University, New Haven, CT: 1:50 pm, June 14, 2012, in Ballroom C (see the conference web site for other information)


Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Artificial Intelligence Center (AIC): Seminar

“Advances in computational photography techniques for cultural, historic, and natural history materials”

CHI's Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer will present this talk in SRI AIC's seminar series on robust new imaging tools from the emerging science known as Computational Photography. The common feature of the computational photography imaging family is the purpose-driven, selective extraction of information from sequences of digital photographs for use with a wide range of cultural and natural history materials and associated research.

SRI's Artificial Intelligence Center, EJ228 (SRI E building), Menlo Park, CA: Tuesday, May 29, 2012, 4:00 pm
