Swedish planetarium uses Mersive software to create immersion experience
Lexington, KY (October 20, 2009) – Mersive is chosen as the automatic alignment software solution for the science center planetarium display at Sweden’s University of UmeA¥. Mersive SOLA® software was used at Umevatoriet Center to accomplish the edge-blending, image warping and auto alignment of multiple projectors on the dome screen to provide a crisp and compelling immersive visual experience.
“Mersive SOLA® software enables automatic alignment of projectors, which significantly reduces installation time and increases the stability of the display,”? explains Randall Stevens, CEO at Mersive. “Calibration, which has traditionally taken hours and even days to achieve, has been reduced to a few minutes, so installation and maintenance costs are greatly reduced.”?
With the combined solution of Mersive SOLA® software, projectiondesign projectors, and integration services by Mersive distributor, Antycip Simulation, the science center delivers an immersive full-dome planetarium show that accommodates 27 people in two rows of seats under a 5 meter diameter hard curved dome screen.
“We are very enthusiastic to have enabled a quantum leap in audience interaction and engagement,”? says Tommy Jonsson, Project Manager at Umevatoriet. “Moreover, management is confident our center’s profile will rise even further as a result. Bravo to Mersive SOLA®, projectiondesign and Uniview for a beautiful collaboration and to Antycip Simulation for bringing it all together.”?
