Technology empowers new scenarios of cultural consumption
As a major cultural province, Shaanxi’s rich historical and cultural resources and natural resources are a treasure trove of resources for the creation of digital collections. In the face of the booming digital economy and new marketing outlets for digital collections, many cultural and tourism scenic spots in our province have begun to deploy.

“In the context of the combination of the rapid development of the digital economy and the normalization of epidemic prevention and control, my country’s cultural and tourism industry is entering a new stage of industrial evolution driven by digital intelligence technology. The digital collection IP that spans the Metaverse and real events is operated by traditional IP.

In recent years, with the popularity of the Metaverse concept, the digital cultural industry represented by the Metaverse, virtual humans, and digital collections has become one of the “tracks” where major technology companies and Internet companies are focusing their efforts. The sale of cultural and tourism digital collections driven by cultural core has also become a platform for major cultural and tourism enterprises to dig deep into their own cultural resources and advantages, promote Shaanxi’s cultural tourism resources with digital technology, and improve tourists’ awareness and sense of participation in cultural tourism projects. A new marketing method to stimulate people’s willingness to travel offline and increase online business income.

A series of digital collections.
Culture is the core of the cultural tourism industry. From traditional culture to new national tide culture, the cultural display forms that conform to the development of the times endow the culture with more vigorous vitality.
Boost the digitalization of museums
With the popularity of digital collections, museums have quickly become an important application scenario for the implementation of digital collections. The combination of cultural relics and digital collections has injected new energy into traditional culture and attracted the attention of young people.
“In October 2021, the Xi’an Museum and the Shuangjing Museum Digital Collection Platform launched the first digital collection “Tang Gilt Walking Dragon”, which was subsequently released in cooperation with Alipay, ‘Magic Core’ APP, Guangming Art, Baidu and other platforms. More than 20 digital collections have been collected. Almost all of these digital collections are ’empty’ as soon as they are released.” Qi Xiaodong, director of the Cultural and Creative Department of Xi’an Museum, said that digital collections have natural advantages such as wide coverage, high consumer acceptance, and strong publicity. It allows major museums to better display cultural heritage online and disseminate excellent traditional Chinese culture even when the audience is inconvenient to visit the museum, which is more conducive to the “activation” of cultural relics.
“Digital collections have enriched the categories of cultural and creative products in museums, and have also brought good economic and social benefits to museums. However, with the rapid development of the digital collections market, more and more products of mixed quality have entered the market, resulting in digital collections. The market is mixed and consumers are fatigued, and digital collections on many platforms have experienced ‘breaks’. Compared with the irrational rush of consumers when digital collections were released earlier, consumers have now returned to rational consumption and have a better understanding of product value. Higher requirements.” Qi Xiaodong said.
Previously, the digital collections of cultural relics mainly presented the prototype of cultural relics in static pictures, dynamic pictures or 3D modeling. Some people even say that digital collections are “NFTs that can be sold, and JPGs that cannot be sold.”
In April of this year, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage conducted an in-depth discussion on the development status of digital collections on issues such as the public welfare attributes, data security, and consumer rights and interests of cultural and cultural institutions. Carry out secondary creation, strengthen the interpretation and dissemination of the value of cultural relics with information technology, and cannot directly sell the original data of cultural relics as limited products.
“In the future, the development of digital collections will be an important way to renew the field of cultural heritage, and innovation is a challenge that cultural and museum units must face. Through formal authorization, cultural relics resources are used to carry out reasonable secondary and tertiary creations, and production has cultural value and Products with economic value; expand the field of digital museums, build immersive composite experience scenarios, expand application scenarios, and activate digital cultural heritage through online and offline linkages, so as to better empower the historical and cultural value of cultural relics with technology.” Qi Xiaodong said.
It is foreseeable that with the implementation of the national cultural digitization strategy and the improvement of relevant policies and regulations for the creation and production of digital collections in museums, more and more museums will use digital technology to narrow the distance between the public and museums and cultural heritage, and many precious cultural heritages. It will also convey the spiritual connotation of Chinese excellent traditional culture to the public in a new value-carrying way.
