Sky-Skan's "To Space and Back" ultra-hi-res version premieres in 2013 at Imiloa, then Macao

The new version of "To Space and Back," produced by Sky-Skan in association with The Franklin Institute, will deliver hyper-real, scientific visualizations in acute detail, clarity and depth without picture stutter or motion blur. It will premiere to the industry in 4K/60 fps/stereo 3D this September at the Fulldome Film Festival of 'Imiloa Astronomy Center (Hawaii), and subsequently to the public in 8K/60 fps/3D at Macao Science Center (China).

Annette Sotheran-Barnett, producer/director/co-writer says, “To Space & Back uses the dome cinema space as an immersive environment rather than just a curved movie screen, and breaks new technological ground in terms of image capture and rendering. The night sky in 8K closely matches the detail and clarity of skies produced by optical-mechanical projection, providing a backdrop that feels close to the real thing – and setting a new benchmark for fulldome shows.”

Steve Savage, Sky-Skan president says, "All fulldome exhibitors can select and show the optimal version of To Space & Back for their system - ranging from 1K to 8K, 30 fps to 60 fps, 2D or 3D, from one fisheye projector to 12 edge-blended projectors or more.”
