Cybersphere

About The Cybersphere and Digistar 3 System

At the heart of our educational and entertainment experience is Evans and Sutherland's most popular digital planetarium system, Digistar 3. This powerful hardware combined with integrated software are capable of generating immersive fulldome, color images consisting of real time 3D computer graphics astronomical simulations and fulldome video. Our system uses 6 projectors working together to seamlessly create the fulldome experience.

In addition, the theater contains a collection of high-quality video projection devices, more than 20 slide and special effects projectors, 13 different speaker enclosures with more than 14,000 watts of audio amplification and a sophisticated control system capable of synchronizing every device in the theater. 

The auditorium style seating accommodates up to 138 under a hemispherical projection dome 60 feet in diameter. The dome is constructed of perforated aluminum sheets and covers more than 6,000 square feet.
