Wheeew, that is a big dome
OK, so Google came to us and wanted us to build an environment that would blow away their VIP guests at their annual Zeitgeist conference. We came up with a 90 foot diameter video dome. This was only for a one evening event, so it had to be amazing. We sent photographers and videographers to the ends of the Earth to capture the most amazing content that nature could dish up.
The video dome used 11 Christie S+20K projectors synchronized and blended through our servers. The surface was over 12,000 square feet, which is a screen just shy of an entire football field of solid video. This was the worlds largest, full surround video environment ever created. Chalk up another worlds first for the kids at Obscura.
