Show­case of HM’s rule to be the high­light of Mus­cat Fes­ti­val 2020

Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE - Swapna Taraf­dar

His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said’s rule will be the high­light of Mus­cat Fes­ti­val 2020.

The fes­ti­val will be held from Jan­uary 16 to Fe­bru­ary 15.

An of­fi­cial in the Mus­cat Fes­ti­val Com­mit­tee of Mus­cat Mu­nic­i­pal­ity said it is leav­ing no stone un­turned to make next year’s fes­ti­val a grand af­fair.

“There will be many sur­prises in store for visi­tors to the fes­ti­val at Amerat Park and Naseem Gar­den.

“We are plan­ning to show­case the jour­ney of Oman from 1970 to 2019 in next year’s fes­ti­val.”

This jour­ney of 49 years will be show­cased us­ing the state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy - 3D holo­graphic pro­jec­tion tech­nol­ogy - brought in from abroad.

The of­fi­cial said that it’s a rev­o­lu­tion­ary tech­nol­ogy that de­liv­ers amaz­ing visual ef­fects. “It will mes­merise visi­tors with awe-in­spir­ing 3D con­tent that ap­pears to be float­ing in air. The tech­nol­ogy al­lows view­ers to in­ter­act with the vi­su­als.

“Holo­graphic tech­nol­ogy is a game changer in cre­at­ing visual ef­fects. It was used to show­case a dragon fly over a base­ball sta­dium in Korea.

“Sports fans saw and in­ter­acted with a large, fire-breath­ing dragon fly­ing over the sta­dium. In a nut­shell, this tech­nol­ogy uses a 3D im­age of a sub­ject by pro­ject­ing light into the air.”
