Mixed Reality Heritage Experience Design at a UNESCO World Heritage Site

"IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK..."

CAVA is leading a collaboration between Culture Liverpool, Draw and Code, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and Immersive Storylab to develop a groundbreaking interactive mixed reality Hololens experience. The digital experience will be developed for and tested in one Liverpools' most iconic buildings; the 19th Century Unesco Heritage St. Georges Hall.

The R&D prototype will be using leading-edge holographic capture and projection technology and incorporated live performances and interactions with characters from the past. This mixed reality immersive experience will take visitors on a journey back in time; to experience and feel what it was like in a 19th Century prison and justice system.

Prof Koeck states: "We are immensely proud to create the first holographic, mixed reality experience I know of in the UK where such technology is being used in a UNESCO heritage building. The lessons learned and impact from this will hopefully be considerable."

The project produced by Richard Koeck and Pete Woodbridge, directed by Philip Wood and kindly supported by St Georges Hall and the Liverpool City Council as well as the University of Liverpool through its Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. The project uses state of the art technology, such as Mircosoft Hololens as well the world-leading volumetric filming expertise of Dimension Studios in London.
