New & Upgraded
Planetarium Technology

The world of planetariums is changing. Today’s most impressive and successful planetariums provide compelling, engaging, and diverse experiences for their visitors. Visitor expectations are higher than ever for crisp and dazzling images that both educate and entertain. Because of this, thinking about planetarium technology may need to change.

Previous expectations for planetarium technology to last for decades is long gone. Instead of relying on an outdated planetarium paradigm, partner with a solution provider who has a broad range of expertise in providing stunning color, high contrast, and sharp resolution to maximize the impact of your content. As a result, planetariums can make the visitor experience more impressive and memorable.

Create an Extraordinary Experience

Planetariums aren’t just about astronomy anymore. The mission, primary film focus, and connections to the community all drive what is showcased. While stars, space, and different galaxies may be a part of the rotation, today’s spaces also show nature and wildlife films, geographical and natural phenomena, and children’s animations and movies. Planetariums are exhibiting:

  • Full-featured films and documentaries
  • Public forums, lectures, and symposiums
  • Virtual reality (VR) and gaming experiences
  • Community events, including those for children, holidays, and scientific anniversaries

When guests visit, they want to be completely immersed. Whether it serves as an extension of a bigger museum visit or a standalone event, planetariums need to provide visitors a one-of-a-kind experience that will impress and amaze.

A true technology partner is dedicated to creating the exact type of experience you want to provide guests. Solution providers who aren’t boxed into “standard” and traditional planetarium solutions can provide a wider range of recommendations. Whether the content focus is educational, informative, or engaging content – or elements of all three – a solution partner will help bring the new experience to life.

Downtime can have significant impacts on the success of your planetarium, leaving visitors feeling disenchanted and frustrated with the overall experience. Furthermore, planetariums need to provide consistent color, brightness, and one seamless image across their dome. Create an environment where visitors forget they are in their seats, and instead, feel they are part of the experience.
