The Vietnam Fine Arts Museum has held an exhibition on “Discovering the architectural heritage of the One Pillar – Dien Huu Pagoda from the Ly Dynasty through Virtual Reality technology”, developed from research results of the SEN Heritage group.

Using 3D glasses, visitors can admire architectural models of Dien Huu Monastery Platform and its One Pillar Structure from the Ly Dynasty through 3D paintings, movies and VR3D products. With this technology, viewers can enjoy experiences perhaps not previously known: a virtual reality experience, architectural forms and the scale of the One Pillar – Dien Huu Pagoda. This method will help museums bring the artifacts closer to viewers so that they can discover its ancient heritage.

The access and application of virtual reality technology in museums to introduce artifacts to the public is a necessary way to promote from afar and attract more visitors, especially during COVID-19 prevention and control. In that context, a number of museums have initially made moves to convert documents and artifacts for viewers. Also following the trend, many online and 3D exhibitions have been launched and attracted viewers such as the Thang Long Citadel Conservation Centre’s 360-degree virtual online exhibition on the “D67 Revolutionary house and cellar”, unique visual art works on the resistance war against the US introduced online by the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, and 3D exhibitions by Ho Chi Minh Museum.

In fact, in recent years, museums in Vietnam have been trying hard to use technology to attract the public, especially the young people. Vietnam National Museum of History is the pioneer in building 3D interactive virtual museums to increase the experience and interactive capacity of the real museum. Since 2013, catching up with the modernisation trend through the application of technology in displaying the activities of modern museums around the world, the Vietnam National Museum of History has introduced many exhibitions and collections to the public using 3D virtual reality technology. Visiting the museum’s website, viewers see the subject “3D Exhibition” with four virtual contents including “Vietnam in Prehistoric Times”, “The Dong Son culture”, “Ngo – Dinh – Anterior Le Dynasties, Ly – Tran Dynasties” and “Oc Eo – Phu Nam”. So far, the public has gradually become accustomed to using technology, smart phones and computers to access and enjoy online exhibitions and virtual interactions. Viewers can sit, watch and study the exhibits on display. The space between the museum artifacts and the public has narrowed. With just one click, the public have the chance to view heritage treasures and thematic exhibitions with narration and auxiliary sounds. Feedback from many viewers shows that virtual displays provide them with more detailed information than real exhibitions. For example, when observing the Ngoc Lu bronze drum in a glass cabinet at the museum, visitors cannot fully appreciate the value of this national treasure. However, with an 3D interactive virtual display, they can see both decorative details and information. Therefore, it is not surprising that there are nine million visits to the website of the Vietnam National Museum of History in 2019.

The Industrial revolution 4.0 with smart applications such as QR code scanning, 3D display, VR technology and augmented reality (AR) is not only a trend and opportunity but also a challenge for the museums. Although 3D VR museum cannot replace the real museum because the visual view of the original artifacts brings true historical feelings and emotions, the application of modern technology has significantly contributed to promoting the value of the exhibits more rapidly and effectively. Modern technology opens a new direction for data storage, conservation of cultural heritages, restoration and reproduction of ruins, serving the display and interpretation and promotion of Vietnamese heritages. The number of agencies developing “virtual museums” in Vietnam is still few, but a trend is developing and the fact that the museums cannot “stand still” in the context of technology development.  NDO

Nhi wins first WBO world belt for Việt Nam

HÀ NỘI — Nguyễn Thị Thu Nhi has become Việt Nam’s first World Boxing Organisation champion after winning a WBO belt on Saturday in Ansan, South Korea.

The Vietnamese boxer took the title on a split decision with two judges scoring Nhi at 96 points, two more than her Japanese rival Etsuko Tada after 10 rounds of the women’s mini-flyweight title fight. 

Nhi made history becoming the first ever Vietnamese to win a professional WBO belt. It was a great gift for her after she celebrated her 25th birthday on Friday.

Back in March, she defeated Kanyarat Yoohanngoh of Thailand in the WBO Asia Pacific Boxing Match’s minimum-weight category on points after 10 rounds to give her this title shot.

“I am very happy and proud. I would never have imagined that I would make my world champion dream come true,” said Nhi.

“I brought Việt Nam’s spirit and willingness into this fight in all 10 hard rounds. This victory is for my family and my supporters.”

Nhi was considered the underdog compared to her 40-year-old opponent in both experience and record.

While Tada has recorded 26 matches with 20 wins (seven KOs), three draws and three losses, Nhi has fought just four matches winning them all. 

“I was a little nervous prior to the match because Tada is really strong and experienced. However, after two first rounds, I found she was not as scary as I thought. I recognised her weaknesses and did my job better than her, and I won,” Nhi said, adding that the belt was priceless because she won it after months of practising locally because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking about his boxer, South Korean promoter Kim Sang-bum, organiser of the fight, said this WBO title match was one of the biggest competitions of the year.

Prior to it, many people thought Nhi could not make her task but Kim himself believed in Nhi who he has coached for several years.

He said Nhi has good technique while her physique has been improved a lot after two months’ training in Uzbekistan. —

Nguyen Thi Thu Thi won the first-ever World Boxing Organization belt for Vietnam after defeating a Japanese opponent in South Korea Saturday afternoon.

Nhi and Etsuko Tada gave spectators a great show throughout 10 rounds. Despite being way less experienced than Tada, Nhi lasted until the end and won.

The Vietnamese ace boxer entered the match with an experience of four professional fights. She won the WBO Asia-Pacific belt in February 2020, her fourth match. Tada, in turn, is the number one mini-flyweight boxer in the world and holds the WBO world championship. Before facing Nhi, the 40-year-old had 26 fights, won 20, drew three and lost three.

The two boxers started the match slow and carefully to get to know each other. In the third round, Nhi hit Tada with a hook that she countered with a straight punch. Although Nhi is shorter in height and arm span, she is skillful with her moves and powerful hooks.

Tada sped it up in the fifth round with rapid jabs, but Nhi also put up a great fight. In the ninth round, Tada made Nhi’s eye bleed after a hook. Using this advantage, Tada attacked continuously in the last round. However, Nhi remained on target despite limited vision.

Overall, the referees ruled Nhi the winner with a score of 96-94.

This is not only the first WBO World belt for Vietnamese boxing but also the first professional title for a boxer from Vietnam.

Nhi, 25, started practicing boxing when she was 13. In 2018, she began her professional career in the ring.

Ho Chi Minh City Wings deal first loss to Thang Long Warriors in overtime

Published

on

The Thang Long Warriors, last year’s Vietnam Professional Basketball League (VBA) runners-up, suffered their first defeat this season against the Ho Chi Minh City Wings in a neck and neck performance that stretched into overtime.

The trend in this year’s VBA season seems to be a widespread dependence on trios of two foreign players and one Vietnamese player for both defense and offense. 

Both the Warriors and the Wings used this tactic successfully throughout their first games of the season.

The Warriors’ Tim Guers and Jordan Young are the two foreign players on the team’s ‘trio,’ with each able to find the net both inside and outside the three-point line. 

On the Wings, veteran player Vincent Nguyen has earned himself a key position thanks to his ability to clear the court for his two foreign teammates, Makinde London and Jeremy Smith. 

The Warriors and the Wings met each other in Game 9 of the VBA Premier Bubble Games – Brought to you by NovaWorld Phan Thiet at the VBA-NTU Arena, with the Warriors heavily favored thanks to their second place finish in the league last season.

Being favored, however, did not translate to a stellar performance as the Wings’ defense spent the first half of the game continuously shutting down the Warriors’ offense.

During the second half, both teams went on the attack, leading to a 79-79 tie at the end of regulation.

The Warriors got off to a weak start when team captain Thai Hung and foreign players Tim Guers and Bryan Coleman fouled out at the beginning of the overtime period. 

The Wings were quick to take advantage of the Warriors’ setback and handed them their first defeat at 96-98.

The Wings’ Jeremy Smith was voted Player of the Game thanks to his strong performance and for sinking nearly half his team’s points.

Games air from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm every day, as well as 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm on Sundays.
