Sneak preview

Here is a sneak preview of our new touring dome in the assembly/test area in Germany and currently in boxes on its way to UNSW, Sydney. Just sitting on boxes in this photo, but eventually it sits on legs raising the rim to just above head height giving unconstrained walk-in and out. The legs also allow up to a 20 degree tilt.

Some specifications: the dome is just 6m diameter, negative pressure inner surface, display consists of eight 2560×1600 pixel projectors, driven from a cluster of 4 computers. This means it is the highest resolution dome in Australia, unlike other so called “4K” systems this one actually has 12,000 pixels around the rim. Would be interested in hearing if anyone knows of higher resolution touring domes internationally.

Please drop me a line if you would like to know when it is ready for viewing, initially being setup in a public gallery space on the UNSW campus.
