The SciDome System: Designed for Planetarium Education
Spitz SciDome planetariums are designed to be engaging, interactive, fulldome classrooms.
Powered by Starry Night and The Layered Earth, SciDome brings realtime space and earth science into the dome’s unique teaching environment. Immerse students in SciDome’s interactive visual universe, and explore Earth’s 3D topography and layers in spectacular detail.
The SciDome System includes:
Fulldome Display System
SciDome projection systems offer a range of configurations and resolutions for domes up to 60 feet (18 meters).
SciDome’s console/desk combination with computers for rendering and operator control. Includes mouse, keyboard, and monitor.
Teach complex concepts with unique live interaction. Classes and mini-lessons for a wide variety of topics from seasons and moon phases, to detailed subjects like orbital dynamics, astronomical timekeeping, and astronomy history.
SciDome integrates tightly with the classroom versions of Starry Night and The Layered Earth. Tailored for grade levels from elementary through university, the curriculum is designed to satisfy state education standards including the NGSS.
Only SciDome includes Touch capability, the first handheld controller designed for planetarium presentation. Your dome becomes a “touch screen” interface.

SciDome Projection Options
Every planetarium is different. Select the SciDome configuration that meets your individual needs.
SciDome Standard – powerful teaching capability, ease-of-use, and low maintenance for smaller facilities and schools.
With ultra-bright laser illumination and a 20,000-hour light source, SciDome HD Laser brings single-projector simplicity to larger domes.
Two-projector SciDome systems deliver higher resolution for the most demanding domes. Dual projector systems include SciDome HD, SciDome XD, and SciDome 4K Laser. Spitz’s AutoWarp calibration makes projector alignment and edge blending a snap.
Dual projector SciDome systems are available in cove-mount option, creating more seating space in the planetarium.
