Eight Optoma EX785 projectors with short-throw lenses were installed to back-project around the hemispherical dome.
Each projector was fed by a media player with synchronised video and audio, then warped and blended to form one seamless image around the whole hemispherical dome.
The audio used a directional sound system with the sound focussed upon a specific area within the dome. An external 5.1 system was installed for just sound atmosphere within the dome. This was then complemented by the powerful 10W built-in speakers to create directional sounds (effect sounds) from each of the eight projectors.
Construction and installation took four weeks to complete, with the dome constructed from wood and metal. The main contractor was Mplus with the architectural solution by SGL Architects. AV MEDIA designed the technical AV elements of the project, installing, warping and blending all projectors within one week.
