Product Overview

The Digitarium® Gamma Fixed model is a digital planetarium system designed for use in permanent domes. It has the same unmatched usability of other Digitarium systems with our exclusive backlit, handheld remote control and Universal Console interface software.

This model is designed for those who want a relatively high resolution system but need high brightness for a larger dome or more vivid colors. This is our brightest option for fixed domes and works well with our optional Elevator Mount System.
