Our software is not just a tool, it is your journey through the universe.

With a digital simulator, software is key to everything you can do and how easily you can do it. Digitalis was founded by the combination of a planetarium director with a passion for live, interactive teaching and a software architect with a keen interest in usability. Our software is key to what makes our systems so special.

To make purchasing easy, we have collected our software features into two packages:

Basic Package prices are listed on our website for each model. Contact us for Professional Package or option pricing. Note that you can upgrade from Basic to Professional down the road, just by purchasing a license upgrade and running an automated software update.
