Realistic, true-to-nature depiction of the Sky
ZEISS SKYMASTER ZKP 4 LED permits high-accuracy topocentric presentations. Sophisticated projection systems with fiber optics and LED illumination provide the best projection of the starry sky ever seen in a small planetarium. Each individual star is directly lighted by pure white light through a separate optical fiber. The Milky Way, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies are all presented with high detail accuracy. The planetarium projector demonstrates all planets of the solar system, planetary moons, comets, selected satellites, and even selected star motions. Digital control allows fast jumps across long periods of time.
Live or fully automatic operation – as you like it
The control system satisfies state-of-the-art standards, with the hardware providing excellent reliability, and the software enabling exceptionally convenient operation. Live shows are just as easy to do as automatic runs. A handy control panel provides all functions needed for live operation.
With ZEISS SKYMASTER VELVET the opto-mechanical and the digital planetarium functions are directly combined. This combination enables synchronous coupling of optical-mechanical and digital fulldome projections. ZEISS ensures that all digital features – such as constellation figures – automatically register with the optically projected stars. The user is free to assign show parts and functions to the planetarium projector and to the digital system.
Digital fulldome projection is performed by two high-resolution VELVET projectors designed and manufactured by ZEISS. They are the only DLP projectors on the market that delivere absolute black where black is in the image. The ZEISS VELVET projectors are the best to match with optical-mechanical star projections. Blends between the image channels are invisible, even in most critical projections.
Rigid, reliable and stable
The projector design is of highest quality for longevity and stability. This applies to both, the projector steadiness and the image stability. Lamp change is accomplished quickly and easily. All projectors come with mounts for rigid installation and easy adjustment.
