      The new release of "To Space and Back," produced by Sky-Skan in
      association with the Franklin Institute, will deliver hyper-real,
      scientific visualizations in acute detail, clarity and depth without
      picture stutter or motion blur. It will premiere to the industry in
      4K/60 fps/stereo 3D this September at the Fulldome Film Festival of
      'Imiloa Astronomy Center <http://www.imiloahawaii.org/168> (Hawaii),
      and subsequently to the public in 8K/60 fps/3D at Macao Science Center
      <http://www.msc.org.mo/en/> (China).

      Annette Sotheran-Barnett, producer/director/co-writer says, "To
      Space & Back uses the dome cinema space as an immersive environment
      rather than just a curved movie screen, and breaks new technological
      ground in terms of image capture and rendering. The night sky in 8K
      closely matches the detail and clarity of skies produced by
      optical-mechanical projection, providing a backdrop that feels close to
      the real thing and setting a new benchmark for fulldome shows."

      Steve Savage, Sky-Skan president says, "All fulldome exhibitors can
      select and show the optimal version of To Space & Back for their system
      - ranging from 1K to 8K, 30 fps to 60 fps, 2D or 3D, from one fisheye
      projector to 12 edge-blended projectors or more."
