ZEISS powerdome SPACEGATE Nova

Fulldome display solutions featuring commercial video projectors

  • Introduction
    SPACEGATE Nova

    Customized fulldome displays

    Within the last years we have seen a fast development of new digital projection technologies for different fields of application. The integration of a digital projection system into a dome theater in a way to achieve sharp, high contrast and bright fulldome images is a challenge for the modern planetarium.
    ZEISS offers multichannel projection solutions from a selection of different video projectors on the market for all dome sizes. Every projector type has been tested for suitability for dome projection.
    These sytems are called powerdome SPACEGATE Nova and will be customized to meet special requirements of the user, the dome and the architecture.

  • Features

    Broad spectrum of possible configurations

    Affording freedom of configuration, ZEISS powerdome SPACEGATE Nova can be adapted to all feasible dome sizes. For simulating a brilliant starry sky, SPACEGATE Nova systems can be combined with one of the ZEISS range of optical-mechanical projectors.

    Two-channel fulldome projection

    For domes 6 m to 15 m in diameter, ZEISS offers a two-channel SPACEGATE Nova fulldome system with, e.g., two F35 projectors. Projection is from the dome center. Use SPACEGATE Nova to add constellation figures, scales and other digital contents to your starry sky of an optical-mechanical planetarium projector. A common control system designed by ZEISS makes the two projection systems operate in exact synchronism.
    You can integrate ZEISS powerdome SPACEGATE Nova into any existing planetarium installations, no matter what model or make of planetarium projector is installed at the dome center.

    Multi-channel fulldome projection

    For medium and large sized domes, six to ten DLP projectors are used for fulldome projections. Installed at the dome periphery a set of projectors delivers the panorama part and the others cover the zenith field.
    Alternatively projectors with LCoS imagers can be integrated into a fulldome display system.
