Meeting all of the requirements set forth by UP Creativos was the ViewSonic PJD8633ws ultra-short throw projector. Using two of these projectors, UP Creativos was able to capitalize on a throw ratio of 0.3:1, a wide-angle lens, and 3,000 lumens of brightness, while also being able to combine the images from both projectors to create a single high-definition signal.
In addition, a ViewSonic PJD5134 projector was used to supplement the two PJD8633ws projectors on the dome, while a ViewSonic Pro8500 5,000 lumen projector was used to video map images onto the planetarium doors. Lastly, images of the crowd were shown on a ViewSonic CDP4260-TL commercial touch screen.
Needless to say, with a bevy of state-of-the-art display technologies from ViewSonic, the digital artists from UP Creativos were given incredible artistic freedom. With the ViewSonic projectors as a part of their palette, the digital artists created images that maximized the depth of the planetarium dome, thereby creating a unique sense of immersion for spectators at the exhibit.
