1322Re: Non-Astro Dome
- Mar 7, 2007The Lewali theater is a great example of how Dome theatres can be used
creatively. Mark Matthews has already provided some useful background on
the project. Other companies involved were SPL who were the technology
main contractor. They provided the audio and control system and
contracted us (SEOS) as specialist display system provider. Mark was at
SEOS at the time and can be credited with winning the order (thanks
We developed the MPEG server and display system configuration. It uses 5
Barco Sim4's for the main dome and Projection design F1's for the
central screens and the 'rock'. It was one of the first systems I saw
when I joined SEOS and it's a lovely theatre and a very creative way of
presenting non-astro content in a Dome. If you're in the area I do
recommend a visit.
So to answer Kevin's question, for the display system mostly Brits and
for the rest mostly Americans!
To pick up on Mark's other points, SEOS provided the display system for
FHW in Athens (World's first Stereoscopic Fulldome) and CFL in the UK
(working alongside E&S and Skyskan).
