ZEISS signed an agreement with the Birla Institute of Fundamental Research to upgrade and refurbish the Birla Planetarium in Kolkata, the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. As well as a ZEISS STARMASTER optical-mechanical projector, the refurbished planetarium will also include a digital projection system consisting of nine VELVET projectors developed and produced by ZEISS for fulldome projection.
On August 4, 2014 the President of the International Planetarium Society (IPS), Thomas W. Kraupe, presented the IPS Technology and Innovation Award to Dr. Ludwig Meier (left with Dr. H.-U. Keller, Stuttgart), widely regarded as the father of modern ZEISS projection planetariums. It pays tribute to the exceptional achievements of an outstanding ZEISS planetarium expert who has played a key role in the development of modern planetarium technology.
We will undertake extra services for your planetarium project and arrange the optimum scope of performance with you.
All planetarium and fulldome systems are installed and startup-tested by specialists from ZEISS.
