Science Museum of Virginia Planetarium goes digital

Immersing guests in a digital experience

​​​The Science Museum of Virginia aims to inspire its patrons and enrich their lives through science. One of the keystones of the popular tourist and educational attraction is its planetarium dome, where guests are immersed in space expeditions, movies and live astronomy presentations on its 76 ft (23 m) screen, the largest screen in Virginia.

Until recently, the facility used 1570 film projectors in the dome, but decided to make the move to digital projectors after being introduced to the clear, crisp, and color rich images digital can provide.​
