A great helping hand in on-site preservation of cultural property, Getac K120 rugged tablet is used for scanning and 3D modeling of Lugang Mazu temple

TAIPEI, 25 November 2021 / PRNewswire / – Getac today announced that LeaderTek used Getac’s K120 rugged tablet in the field for 3D laser scanning and data computation for Lugang Mazu Temple, a historical monument preserved under the tutelage of the Ministry of Culture, thereby promoting digital preservation of cultural heritage.

The high performance of the Getac K120 improves the efficiency of on-site 3D modeling. The display features LumiBond® 2.0 technology, allowing operators to see the display clearly even under direct sunlight.

Lugang Mazu Temple, which consecrates the sea goddess Mazu, was originally built in 1591. The wood and stone carvings and paintings are all made by famous artists. Faithful believers constantly visit the temple. Despite the temple’s status as a national monument, various temple structures and artifacts are still in frequent use. They can be easily damaged by man or by natural disasters in from Taiwan subtropical climate.

“Lugang Mazu Temple has more than 400 years of history. Maintenance and repair work is needed for more and more parts of the temple. For example, the Phoenix Palanquin, which was used to transport the goddess Mazu during of his pilgrimages, suffered damage after nearly a century of use. I hope that the 3D scanning technology can digitally preserve the Phoenix Palanquin, so that the goddess Mazu can again sit in this magnificent car during his pilgrimages ”, declared Chia wen liu, director of the Lugang Mazu temple.

In conjunction with LeaderTek’s 3D laser scanner and 3D point cloud processing software, the Getac K120 rugged tablet is used to help the Cultural Heritage Bureau, under the Ministry of Culture and Lugang Mazu Temple, to digitize and create 3D models, with the aim of digitally preserving cultural assets for future research and restoration.

The Getac K120 is equipped with several advanced technologies that can be used in digital modeling in the field, such as the latest generation Intel Core series processor, with the Iris® Xe graphics card, which supports data intensive computing and captures all the details in its digitized models, while maintaining low power consumption. It supports Wi-Fi 6 technology for smooth connectivity to receive large amount of data from onsite 3D laser scanner in real time. In addition, the Getac K120 tablet is equipped with a 12.5-inch Full High Definition (FHD) display, featuring 1200 nits of brightness and LumiBond® 2.0 technology, allowing operators to clearly see the screen even in direct sunlight. Certified to meet MIL-STD-810H and MIL-STD-461G standards, as well as IP66 standards, the Getac K120 tablet is shock, water and dust resistant, making it the perfect device for outdoor operations.

“The Getac K120 is the ideal computing platform for an outdoor environment that can dramatically improve the efficiency of on-site 3D modeling with its long battery life and high performance computing capabilities. We can now view scan results in the field while operating for long periods of time. In the past, we could only scan 20 locations per day with a consumer laptop. However, with the Getac K120, we can scan up to 70 locations per day, which is a 250% increase in efficiency, ”said Yao Liang Chu, director at LeaderTek.

Taiwan is constantly under the onslaught of natural disasters, making the digital preservation of monuments even more urgent. LeaderTek used the Getac rugged tablet in combination with 3D laser scanners to complete the digital modeling of the Lugang Mazu temple. These digital models can be used as a benchmark for future maintenance of these historic monuments so that details can be accurately restored, ”said Chen Chun Yu, Assistant researcher at the Institute of the Research Center on the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, Office of Cultural Heritage, Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.

As part of Getac Select® solutions, the Getac K120 comes with accessories such as suspenders, straps and rigid handles that meet LeaderTek’s needs for on-site operations, in line with Getac’s efforts to create the best solutions. Global optimized for industry application scenarios. The Getac K120 rugged tablet is backed by Getac’s bumper-to-bumper warranty, a hassle-free warranty for customers, covering accidental damage and environmental risks.

“When technology crosses the path of historic heritage, the robustness and high performance of the K120 enhance the possibility of preserving history. The 3D scanning app is the perfect demonstration of how the K120 can be used for on-site operations and how our hardware and software technologies and those of our partners can be seamlessly integrated. This practice can be further expanded to meet the needs of other industries, such as factory environment measurement, factory monitoring and mapping, ”said Rick hwang, president of Getac Technology Corporation.
