Dead Sea Scrolls Project passes a significant milestone
JERUSALEM, Israel, December 2012 - MegaVision’s multi-year Dead Sea Scroll project passes a significant milestone with the announcement by the Israel Antiquities Authority and Google that the multi-spectral Scroll images captured by MegaVision’s EV system are now available for public access at the IAA official website:
MegaVision began working with the Dead Sea Scrolls over three years ago. The first Scroll images captured with MegaVision’s EV system were sufficiently compelling as to end the multi-year search by the Israel Antiquities Authority for the world’s best multi-spectral imaging technology; a technology that would not only reveal the hidden text buried beneath black layers of age, but also provide the world’s most accurate and repeatable color images. The EV system’s accuracy and repeatability provides conservators a long sought tool to monitor the condition of the Scrolls over time. Minute change will be detected by the EV system long before change can be detected by the human eye, enabling corrective measures to be taken before damage occurs.
