Awe-inspiring 4K images

Our digital projectors for planetariums feature advanced 4K SXRD panel technology that delivers consistently bright, crisply detailed native 4K images with extremely high contrast and support for HDR.

Smooth, easy-on-the-eye 3D

Our 4K projectors for planetarium applications can be readily configured for immersive presentations of the night sky in smooth, realistic 3D — without the viewing issues often associated with “triple-flash” image alternation systems that can distract audiences.
