True-Hybrid Planetarium

Project Specific Solutions

With the True-Hybrid Planetarium, ZEISS combines the optical-mechanical starry sky projection of a ZEISS star projector with a fulldome projection based on standard video projectors. Of course, opto-mechanical and digital functions are executed synchronously.

  • Brilliant Starry Sky
  • True Hybrid Control
  • Variable Configurations
Starry sky projection

ZEISS Star Projectors for inspiring Night Sky Projections

Whether ASTERION, SKYMASTER ZKP 4 or UNIVERSARIUM M IX - ZEISS continues to place the highest value on the quality of artificial stars. In all ZEISS star projectors, ZEISS combines two leading technologies that ensure extremely bright, razor-sharp and tiny stars: fibre optics and LED lighting. Never before has the artificial starry sky been so close to the natural one.

Example dome configuration

Variable Fulldome Configurations

ZEISS fulldome systems as hybrid components are variably configurable and can be adapted for all dome sizes. Resolutions of 8k and more and stereo projection are also possible. ZEISS uses various standard video projectors that have been tested for dome projection.

  • 8k+ 
  • Stereo Projection
True Hybrid Control

True-Hybrid Control

ZEISS ensures that all digital displays automatically match the optical starry sky – both during the playback of a programmed show and during live presentations. The True-Hybrid control system allows the user maximum operating freedom: a common control interface provides all important functions with the simplest possible handling. In the same way, digital functions can be controlled from the optical-mechanical projector and commands can be sent from the digital system to the star projector.
