On March 15, 2018, the Zeiss Planetarium in Vienna celebrated its reopening after a short interruption. In February, ZEISS installed new VELVET video projectors for complete projection onto the 630 m² planetarium dome. The VELVET projectors, developed and manufactured by ZEISS in Jena, are distinguished by the best contrast worldwide. The absolutely black background ensures that visitors can experience astronomical representations with a spatial depth that enables them to literally immerse themselves in the astronomical worlds.
Now it is possible to connect the existing star projector with its unsurpassed brilliant night sky with the digital video projection. This combination of analog and digital projection, known as a hybrid planetarium, allows unique representations that help visitors to understand and comprehend the processes in the sky more easily. After a record number of visitors in 2017, the planetarium is now optimally equipped for even more visitors.
