The Mark Smith Planetarium is only the third planetarium in the Western Hemisphere to feature the Konica Minolta Super MediaGlobe-II, which projects MAS programming onto the largest dome of the three locations.
The leading-edge digital system is the world’s first full-color single-lens digital system to adopt a new standard in high-resolution projection that is four times that of the best HDTV images. This ensures that details and depth in dark scenes are expressed clearly and vividly, including brilliant stars are set against the blackness of space.
The Super MediaGlobe-II projects simulations of the earth and sky, as well as simulations to the end of the known universe and the latest information gathered about our universe—and more—onto a brand new leading-edge 44-foot dome. The images below depict the power and clarity of the Museum’s new digital system.
The following are videos of the new dome being installed in the Mark Smith Planetarium.
