It is for these spectacular theaters with dome sizes up to 50 m in diameter that ZEISS UNIVERSARIUM has been designed, the top-of-the-line model among the ZEISS planetarium projectors. The ZEISS powerdome VELVET fulldome system has been developed especially for planetariums attaching great importance to the presentation of the night sky. ZEISS VELVET projectors deliver dome-covering imagery of extremly high contrast, brightness and resolution, as a hamonic complement to UNIVERSARIUM. Shadow-free projection obliquely past the central star projector is absolutely no problem.
It is no question that all fulldome systems from ZEISS also work without, and independently from, a planetarium projector and vice versa. For large domes ZEISS also offers varied systems based on commercial video projectors, which will be configured to individual requirements.
Digital fulldome projection
The ZEISS UNIVERSARIUM machine is the heart of the most ambitious planetariums around the world. It also represents the most powerful planetarium instrument in the world, a combination of highest-quality opto-mechanical projection systems and precise digital controlling techniques. The 32 fiber projectors in the Starball depict the starlit sky with unparalleled brilliance and brightness. ZEISS UNIVERSARIUM is designed for special custom configurations and specifications. You can configure the planetarium machine to your needs. The instrument is suitable not only for traditional dome theaters, it can also be installed in tilted domes.
The ZEISS UNIVERSARIUM Model IX is available in combination with ZEISS powerdome fulldome systems or as your sole planetarium instrument.
