Fulldome Production News – Issue 1

Hi, and welcome to the bi-weekly issue of Fulldome production news.

Here are many links and references to Fulldome resources.

Here is a good talk from Michael Daut, Director of Show Production/Marketing at Evans and Sutherland.
The talk was held at IMERSA, a major player in organizing Fulldome producers and venues.

And so, here are MORE standards – even more stringent – but don’t be dismayed if your dome is less than 60 feet or you have less than 16 audio channels… These are LARGE screen standards.

There are a few good articles on Fulldome production in the Western Alliance of planetariums newsletter.
