Our Digitarium Æthos (AY-thos) systems are our highest resolution digital planetarium systems for fixed domes.

Digitalis is well known for its best-selling single fisheye systems. We are now bringing our philosophy to a multi-projector system with our same focus on ease of use, quality, support, and educational integrity. Æthos hides most of the complexity and headaches of a multi-projector system so that you can focus on your audiences rather than your equipment.
