Probing the Depths of the Universe
For over 50 years the Bangkok Planetarium has been impressing visitors but more recently, thanks to Christie® Boxer and Evans & Sutherland's Digistar 5 system, the immersive cosmological experience it now offers has made the planetarium a must-visit destination. Deep space journeys and close-ups of objects in the farthest depths of outer space are attracting new visitors and enticing familiar patrons to return.
DellEMC Case Study on E&S
To deliver its industry-leading Digistar planetarium projection software, Evans & Sutherland sought a dependable, robust platform to easily incorporate into a turnkey solution that could be supported virtually anywhere in the world.

Burke Baker's Planetearium Re-Opening Out of this World
"This week Evans & Sutherland delivered on their True8K vision and exceeded all our expectations in Houston. The combination of high resolution, high contrast, high brightness, and rich color palette has turned our planetarium into a destination with record crowds and much applause. We have a star field that is as dark and rich as any on Earth. We have video that is far sharper, more vibrant, and more immersive than in any movie theater. In a True8K planetarium with its high frame rate, a new reality surrounds you, immerses you, and takes you where you could never go before. The Burke Baker Planetarium is not just a movie theater, but a unique audience experience, like a world-class exhibit, to be enjoyed oand over again." -Dr. Carolyn Sumners
Vice President for Astronomy and the Physical Sciences
On Earth as it is From Heaven
As part of a new 8K show production in conjunction with Houston Museum of Natural Science, Evans & Sutherland has a photography team on the ground north of the Arctic Circle. They are photographing the Aurora Borealis, while coordinating with astronauts aboard the International Space Station to capture the same Aurora, in the same locations at the same time.
Using special equipment these images are being specifically captured in 8K resolution for the fulldome. The first results of these coordinated aurora images are now coming in. Sunday night (7 February, 2016) this active aurora was captured by our team and the ISS astronauts at the same time over Norway.
