Video & Immersive Visualizations

Immersive Dome Visualizations

Recent advances in planetarium technology are enabling planetariums large and small to cover their domes with seamless, high-resolution video, putting audiences in the image and taking them on fantastic journeys. We are creating a family of scientifically accurate immersive visualizations for use in these new formats. You may download low-resolution MPEG previews here (320-pixel-diameter fisheye views). They are available to digital dome show producers and presentation venues at no fee. To obtain high-resolution dome originals as a series of sequentially numbered equidistant polar-projection still frames on CD or DVD, contact us. Single frames can also be provided in high-resolution for all-sky slide projection.
