Re: powerdome VELVET - 2,500,000:1 Contrast Projector for Planetariums and Domed Thea
Sorry, I had clicked on the Quote button - thinking it would give me a cost estimate for the projector :-)
I am from Nehru Planetarium, New Delhi and am looking for a possible cost estimate of full dome VELVET system for a 15m dome. I am also wondering whether the Powerdome in itself would have the capability of being a full fledged digital planetarium solution in the absence of an optomechanical projector.
We have an old Carl Zeiss optomechanical projector and are wondering about combining this with a VELVET full dome - however, in case the old system fails, we would need to run the planetarium with the digital solution until more budget comes to purchase a new optomechanical projector - which we hope can at that stage be integrated with whatever digital system we purchase now - as a synchronised hybrid planetarium solution.
