Microsoft Surface, the Perfect Home for the Digitized Garibaldi Panorama.
Microsoft Surface is the perfect home for the digitized version of a 19th-century relic known as the Garibaldi Panorama. The Redmond company’s tabletop computer will be used to bring the 140-year-old print to the public, marking the culmination of a consistent digitizing effort that was announced initially back in 2007. The Garibaldi Panorama on Microsoft Surface will be the centerpiece of an exhibition focused on the evolution of digital scholarship, which will kick off this fall at the British Library.
“The Garibaldi Project by Brown University with support from Microsoft Research’s External Research and the British Library, offers access to the panorama on Microsoft Surface with images, documents, web pages, video and audio narration. You can even use a pen to make notations. With a large vertical screen on the wall, you can also share both the panorama and other resources with others. This was a joint project at Brown with the Department of Italian Studies and the Library’s Center for Digital Initiatives where most of the effort started late last summer,” Eric Havir, Sr. manager, Digital Communications at Microsoft/Surface, revealed.
