immersive projection environments
Attention fulldome community: IMERSA is trying to identify the ‘big’ questions that operators need to answer before ‘convergence’ can go much further and is seeking community feedback. Please read on...
Your input will inform IMERSA's session "Digital Planetariums and Giant Screen Digital Domes – Conflict or Convergence?” moderated by Paul Fraser at IPS (Wed, 7/25 at 11 am).
There are approximately 100 film-based giant screen domes and a roughly equal number of giant screen digital planetariums worldwide. As giant screen domes transition to digital dome projection, how will they differ from digital planetariums? What standards will they adhere to? Will giant screens run fulldome programming and will planetariums run digitized giant screen films? This panel will explore the coming convergence of digital planetariums and giant screen film theaters.
