Digital Projection brings the Universe to life at The Bell Museum's new planetarium

Supplier: Digital Projection

More Digital Projection details
The planetarium is powered by Digital Projection's INSIGHT Dual Laser 4K projection system
The Bell Museum in Minnesota has undergone an extensive renovation, worth $79m, which has seen the addition of a state-of-the-art dome planetarium, the first in the US, supported by Digital Projection's INSIGHT Dual Laser 4K projection system.

Provided by Sciss AB, a Sweden-based provider of digital planetaria, the 120-seat planetarium, called The Whitney and Elizabeth MacMIllan Planetarium, will combine cutting edge technology with the University of Minnesota's latest data research to create data visualisations that will take audiences from the far reaches of the universe to deep inside the human brain.

It features a 16m Astro-Tec Ulteria Seam Dome onto which real-time renderings and full-dome videos, custom-created for the planetarium are projected, using Digital Projection's INSIGHT projectors.

The system boasts two 27,000 lumens projectors designed to offer superior image quality, as well as a long-lasting light source, whilst keeping running costs at a minimum, and provides 4K 60p signal via a single cable.

Paul Tetu, project director at Sciss AB, said: "Digital Porjection's 4K laser offering was the right choice because the customer was very interested in reduced operation costs. We did our research, saw demos, ran some in-house tests and felt comfortable with Digital Projection."

"We were very pleased with the end result. The image is great and the projector is quieter than expected. When we were in touch with Digital Projection through different phases of the project, we found them to be supportive and our experience with the company, and this projector was positive. So much so, we are already including this projector in offers to other potential customers," Tetu added.
