Geomar "ARENA": 6m Science Dome

This dome is housed within a custom made 6m x 7m x 6m hangar within the Lithothek on the GEOMAR eastshore campus.
A fiber glass reinforced projection dome of 6m diameter equipped with 5x Barco F50 projectors is suspended from the ceiling. Thus, the height above ground, tilt, and generally speaking the dome orientation can be arbitrarily chosen – a uniqe feature in the simulator and dome world.
A Wings VIOSO media server supports playback of 60 Hz stereoscopic content at resolutions up to 4400 x 4400 pixels.
Wings AVIO provides complete automation of all aspects of the lab. The system can be controlled from a cell phone.

Every aspect of this installation – planning, delivery of screen, housing, trussing, projectors and system integration – was supported by us with our great knowledge in dome projections and was integrated by our partners.
