Posted 4/14/2016

Christie® and Evans & Sutherland helped make a dream come true at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) planetarium in Columbus, Ohio. Using Evans & Sutherland’s Digistar 5 system and two Christie D4K2560 projectors, audiences experience intergalactic journeys and the latest scientific discoveries. Closed from 2004 to 2014, the reopened planetarium draws over 100,000 visitors annually thanks to the efforts of the Columbus community, COSI Team, Evans & Sutherland, and Christie projection technology.

In its earlier incarnation, the planetarium used Evans & Sutherland’s Digistar 2 – which was state-of-the-art for its time ​ but with the reopening in 2014, it was time for the latest and best technology. And audiences and the COSI Team couldn’t be happier.
