Join us at the stunning Port Eliot Estate on 13th March to experience a series of digital tech demos, featuring Face-Recognition, Voice Control, ARKit, HoloLens, 360 and Haptics. We are inviting arts, culture or historical organisations to Port Eliot’s fantastic Round Room to experience and question over coffee, a few curated ways that technology can positively intervene with tradition.
If you work with technology, art, collections or historic buildings we’d love to hear from you. Please register before 1st March to be considered for a place. As the space at the venue and opportunities to interact with the tech demos are limited, we may not be able to accommodate everyone. We’ll let you know by 5th March if you’ve been allocated a place.
Throughout the day, we’ll demo a unique mix of new media technologies chosen for their suitability to the increasingly delicate and beguiling surroundings in which we propose they can be situated. This concise suite of technology demonstrations is themed to show ways of enhancing an audience’s experience without being too overt and so maintain any historical venue’s original characteristics.
● Video Analytics & Face Recognition Technology – examples of a greater more personalised visitor experience and a safer place to be.
● Voice User Interface Experts – demonstrating the promise of conversational interfaces on Google Assistant, Alexa, personal robots, ambient and embedded hardware.
● AR / VR Creative Technologists – using groundbreaking XR content including room scale VR, custom-built mixed reality viewer and augmented product showcase.
● VR / MR Production Agency – presenting the Agatha Christie HoloLens Edition (pre-booked only) and VR Archeology Experience (in the basement).
Assistants will be on hand all day to take you through each demonstration and answer questions. From 10 am – 11 am, prior to the symposium discussions, artists and experts will be in the Round Room, available to provide brief feedback on any questions specific to your venue.
