Great immersive experiences & entertainment in Bando Kobe Science Museum Japan!

We installed in the impressive 20m dome of Bando Kobe Science Museum a powerful 4K Hybrid system bringing together cutting-edge technologies: 2 x 4K VPL-GTZ380 SONY projectors along with our software SkyExplorer, totally synchronized with our starball Konica Minolta Planetarium Infinium Σ.

Offering an overwhelmingly realistic night sky and stunning journeys through the Universe! And that’s not all, visitors can enjoy the dome theater in news ways!

We installed in the impressive 20m dome 2 x 4K 10,000 lumens VPL-GTZ380 Sony projectors and our software SkyExplorer, named Media Globe ∑ SE in Japan, totally synchronized with our Infinium Σ starball, to offer spectacular journeys through the Universe, along with the most stunning, realistic and educational night sky observations.

By combining Sony’s projectors and our powerful software SkyExplorer, the highest image quality and rendering were achieved with the finest level of pixel, offering stunning and realistic images in real time. Sony’s VPL-GTZ380 projectors reach 10,000 lumens through a laser light source, achieve very high levels of contrasts thanks to the SXRD 4K panels, and offer rich colors reproducing 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut without losing any brightness.

To achieve the most magnificent night sky renderings, SkyExplorer is totally synchronized with our starball Infinium Σ. Our innovative starball offers the closest rendering to a natural sky thanks to its cutting-edge projection mechanism that reproduces the realistic gradation of the night sky and thanks to its high-luminance LED light source that projects the brightest twinkling stars. Combined with SkyExplorer’s great didactic tools and night sky rendering generated using Gaia DR2 catalog, planetarium operators and the audience can visualize the most stunning and scientifically accurate night sky.
