Product Overview

The Digitarium® Kappa Fixed model is a digital planetarium system designed for use in permanent domes.

Full dome/full sky projection is available at a projection angle of 167 degrees. This is ideal for fixed domes, as the projection system is placed below the springline of the dome out of audience sight lines.

The Digitarium® Kappa Fixed model is designed for those who want high resolution and the best projection quality in a fixed Digitarium system. The Kappa's high resolution is invaluable if you show fulldome video shows, immersive environments, or scientific visualizations. Starfields will also look better, especially with the high contrast and our high quality proprietary lens.

The Kappa includes our high-resolution data sets of the Earth and solar system for spectacular planetary exploration with incredible detail.
