Paul Noceti of NextEngine, a Santa Monica based technology company, will be giving a demonstration on the application of the NextEngine 3D scanner and software package for the management of archaeological objects and cultural heritage. This hardware is currently in use by Prof. Tom Levy and his graduate students at UCSD. Because of its archaeological applications and reasonable cost it is likely to be of interest to many at the Cotsen.

This scanner is of particular interest because of its ability to overlay a high-resolution photo on the surface of the scanned object. Furthermore, derivatives from the scanned objects permit the generation of publication quality photographs and ceramic drawings (cross-sections), in addition to the 3D objects that are produced.

The demonstration will be held in the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Seminar Room (Fowler A222) and the hardware will be employed to scan a ceramic vessel and cuneiform tablet, as examples of archaeological artifacts that might be scanned.
