Technology has been accompanying the human journey in research of the past for years, and has frequently helped solve archaeological mysteries through dating, analysis of chemicals in findings and much more.
But slowly, a new connection has been forming between the two and that may make your next visit to Jerusalem an exciting and powerful experience.
The City of David National Park is a focal point for pilgrimages and a must-see site for anyone visiting Jerusalem. The unique artifacts found at the City of David excavations, and the various tourist sites where guests can visit and vacation, showcase to visitors the ancient picture of the long history connecting the story of Jerusalem’s residents in the days of David and Solomon’s kingdoms to our days – and to local residents and visitors to Israel.
Advanced technology is often used to explain the various stories and facts to the audience. These technologies help illustrate the stories, simplify the complexities and enrich visitors’ experiences.
Recently, two new shows that use advanced technology were launched simultaneously: Hallelujah Fire and Water – the City of David’s night show lights up again, and the Spring Fortress exhibit.
The Hallelujah night show has been using breakthrough technology known as “video mapping”, since its launch in 2017. Video mapping is a technology that uses a number of powerful projectors, projecting on a still object (in this case – the City of David ruins), at the exact same time and with accuracy to the millimeter from a few different angles, in a way that creates a spectacular 3D illusion that does not require 3D glasses or heavy equipment.
