While we think the fulldome shows we create at Loch Ness Productions are great, we do acknowledge there are other talented producers and fine shows out there. Over the years, we've compiled a list of commercially available titles and who made them, and we continue to share that information with you on our Web site. Our list is pretty comprehensive (at least 170 titles), and it's a popular online destination.
Wouldn't it be great if you could just peruse our list, and… Continue
Aayushi Animation Studio introduces a new full-dome planetarium show, "Map to the Chocolate Planet". A funny story about Two alien kids who got the taste of chocolate and in search of some imaginary planet made up of chocolate, they travelled the universe leading to our Milky Way. Searching each planet of the solar system to derive which one is made of chocolate, they learn lots of other interesting facts about our Solar System. Will they be able to find the real source of their… Continue
The Elumenati were invited by 350.org to bring the GeoDome to provide a really big picture perspective during the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. In addition to the Digital Universe Atlas, we used Uniview's Geoscope module to visualize CO2 emissions scenarios from the Sustainability Institute's Climate Interactive, biodiversity layers from CalAcademy, and global change data from NASA and…
We are working on an interactive portable dome project showcasing various media content to students. We are coming across technical hurdles and were hoping some of you more experienced dome users can help us. We are new to this technology and apparently are entering 'uncharted' territory. Here is the issue:
we are happy to announce to most comprehensive FullDome Festival ever. 2010 will be the 4th edition of the FullDome Festival at the Jena Planetarium, Germany, and again with an extended scope: For the first time, full-length feature shows will be presented. The agenda is amazing. The Festival will see 27 all new shows from producers around the world. We are proud to present two world premieres: Natural Selection by Robin Sip (Mirage3D) and tempus.ruhr by Rocco Helmchen, an artistic fulldome… Continue
I'm a new member and was delighted to find this site! I'm doing an MA in Art and Media Practice part time over 2 years in London. The project I am undertaking is to create a full dome therapeutic environment. I would like to use my dome in hospitals, holistic centers, festivals etc. I want to be able to project video images rather than computer based graphics. I'm just going to talk a little about my project and perhaps people will be able to share their experiences and… Continue
Eurographics 2010 is highlighting fulldome as a program area. The conference is hosted by Linköping University's Norrköping Viz Lab,the birthplace of the fabulous Uniview domeware. The C-Center will have a research dome on-line by the conference start.
Hi to all my German colleagues. Sorry for this last minute post, got the idea to contact the group a bit late and must admit that the official international collaboration channels don't have a clue about what i'm talking about... but I feel this could be of interest to all the German fulldome community.
I'm in Munich today and tomorrow morning and in Berlin Thursday and Friday. I still have some free time on my agenda and I would like to meet fulldome members in these two cities if… Continue

I saw the Sony SRXT420 at Dome Day in the Cincinnati museum. With the "8 K" lens it is brighter than their IMAX projector. Two of these can cover the dome and be brighter than IMAX.
This is significant. Typical IMAX projectors also vary in the evenness of the light distribution by a factor of 2. The T420 was very even all the way around. I measured with a Minolta LS 100 light meter.
Can you tell I'm excited?
I feel that it has the potential to be even brighter:
1. The… Continue

We are actively doing research at the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] to define new type of performance spaces. Here's a video about the DOMAGAYA event we did last year in Quebec city with our inflatable dome, the SATosphere. While most of the domes outside planetariums seem to be used only for Cocktails and product launches (agree that it can provide an interesting form of funding for the technology) we are interested in using these technologies to define new types of artforms and public… Continue
Office Broomer's full dome projection during daytime. We projected in our 30 meter dome with a massive 180.000 ansi lumen projection system. No blackout screen was used. On top of that 8 layers of alpha projecting angels. These angels were triggered by visitors during the entrance of a event.
My inbox has been ringing off the hook for months with DF09 inquiries. Thank you and please accept my apologies for being unresponsive. It’s been a very very busy and interesting year here at the ARTS Lab.
So here’s where we are:
We’ve been scheming and dreaming about DomeFest 2009 and have a lot of special programs planned. And we’ve been working to find the right time to gather ( and lots of partners to arrange).
The Society for Arts and Technology research group, SAT[Metalab] in Montreal has worked with the Blender open source community to support the introduction of a fisheye dome camera for virtual walktroughs and immersive 3d film. Hope to see a lot more open tools soon. Anyone knows about an open source multi projection blending system for domes?
"To that point, Microsoft has developed a projection system that lets people manipulate large video images with their hands. Using this technology, Microsoft’s researchers projected an image of the known universe onto a homemade cardboard dome and then… Continue
FULLDOME OnDemand has added a flat-screen option for customers to use when renting selected shows."Over the years at Loch Ness Productions, we've had inquiries about flat-screen versions of our shows, particularly for use in classroom settings," said Loch Ness Productions CEO Carolyn Collins Petersen. "Traditionally, we stayed focused on the dome experience; that's what we're good at, after all. Now with the worldwide…See More
Breaking into the music industry has always been a challenge for artists of all genres. Tens of thousands of artists are dying for meditation and gigs, and this is on top of the artistic challenge of finding inspiration for new songs, finding the right melody or beat, and tackling band member personalities. The entire process can be…See More
