SkyExplorer in a leading university in South Korea!

With our long-term partner Metaspace we are proud to have installed the new planetarium in Seoul National University, the most prestigious university in Korea.

We installed in the 13m dome, a 4K 2D digital system using 2 x 4K 10,000 lumens VPL-GTZ380 SONY projectors and our powerful astronomical software SkyExplorer, along with a JL Cooper Electronics’ Eclipse manual console.

We installed in the 13 m dome 2 x 4K Sony VPL-GTZ380 projectors which reach 10,000 lumens each through a laser light source, achieve very high levels of contrasts thanks to the SXRD 4K panels, and offer rich colors reproducing the DCI-P3 color gamut without losing any brightness.

By combining Sony’s and our leading technologies, we achieved ultra-realistic and stunning images in real time with the highest levels of brightness and contrasts.

We also installed a JL Cooper Eclipse manual console enabling planetarium operators to go to their control desk at any time and control SkyExplorer without even needing to switch on the screen of the computer. This console with its customizable control surface offers users superior levels of control, great ease-of-use and tactile assurance, for smooth and fast controls.

This state-of-the-art facility replaces the previous planetarium that was in operation at the university until 2003. After nearly 20 years without a planetarium, Seoul National University is excited to bring this interactive and educational experience back to its students and the community. The new planetarium will not only be used for astronomy education, but also for a variety of other subjects.

We are thrilled to be part of this exciting project in such a renowned institution!

Many thanks to our long-term partner Metaspace for yet another great project!
