The recently completed upgrade to the Iziko Planetarium includes 6, Sony 4K laser projectors providing an 8K fulldome (64 MP) projection system powered by 12 NVidia P6000 GPUs. Fulldome 360° environments allow large audiences to experience multi-sensory, immersive experiences, without the need for VR headsets. Shared immersive environments are natural, comfortable, and provide a creative platform for innovation.
This event, in association with Astroinformatics 2017, .Astronomy 9, IAU Southern Horizons in Time-Domain Astronomy, and the International Planetarium Society, will include presentations from:
