Jeffrey Kirsch of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center to Represent GSCA on IMERSA Summit Panel

Jeffrey Kirsch, Executive Director of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, will join the panel discussion “Playing Together Under the Dome” at the IMERSA 2013 Summit, February 14-17, at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The session will examine how fulldome can leverage common ground between intersecting industries in digital multimedia. Kirsch, former chair of the Giant Screen Cinema Assocation (GSCA), is recognized as a pioneer and major contributor to the production and exhibition of IMAX® films in science museums. The Fleet is home to the world’s first IMAX Dome theater, installed in 1973, and with the recent installation of a new giant dome screen digital GSX™ system from Global Immersion is the first Giant Dome Theater in the country to share a digital planetarium with an IMAX Dome theater.

“I am looking forward to representing GSCA, and in particular the new Giant Dome Interest Group (GDIG) of GSCA, in the panel that will discuss the future of immersive media,” says Kirsch. “The business models are very different for digital fulldome venues, and we need to share ideas as to how we can move forward together.”

Also on the “Playing Together Under the Dome” panel are multimedia producer George Wiktor of The GW Group, representing the Themed Entertainment Association; Thomas Kraupe, director of Planetarium Hamburg, representing the International Planetarium Society; and producer Jay Williams of Super 78, representing the Producers Guild of America. IMERSA board member Michael Daut, Director of Show Production/Marketing at Evans & Sutherland, will moderate the session.
