Cultural masterpieces in 8K

When the Ars Electronica Center (AEC) first opened its doors in 1996, its agenda was set. The 'Museum of the Future' wanted to bring visitor interaction and participation to the fore, to bridge the gap between art and science by becoming an atelier and experimental laboratory in one. Following a first modernisation and expansion in preparation for Linz being a European Capital of Culture 2009, the museum's central exhibit – Deep Space – was recently completely refurbished.

The aim of the renovation was to take the existing 16 x 9 m wall and floor projections to the next level – by transforming the exhibit's 3D visualisations with an 8K resolution (8,192 x 4,320 pixels), a 120 Hz frame rate and stereo 3D technology – a world first that would be sure to enthral visitors.
