First ever combined large format 3D and fulldome theater at Cosmonova

November 13, 2008 – 12:20 pm

The new hybrid digital theater with its innovative design is now open to the public at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.

The Cosmonova theater at the Swedish Museum of Natural History (SMNH), Stockholm has undergone an innovative digital display upgrade introducing a 23-meter fulldome display as well as a partial dome 3D theater experience. The 262 seat planetarium now displays high-resolution, crisp and colorful content in an hemispherical environment, in addition to a 17-meter (56-foot), windowed 3D display projected across the dome surface. Global Immersion integrated Fidelity 3D™ and Fidelity Bright™ solutions to fulfill the two projects requirements, including full theater and content management, control, automation and playback systems.

Ian Dyer, International Commercial Manager at Global Immersion explained, “As with all of our projects, the Cosmonova installation required meticulous attention to detail to ensure the system was blended seamlessly. Each of the six fulldome channels merge invisibly into each other, creating one large immersive and uniform display. It was crucial that these were blended accurately and invisibly – ensuring that the Cosmonova theater retains the true meaning and value of ‘giant screen'”.
