Digitalis Fixed Dome Systems
Digitarium systems offer an enormous range of features at a fraction of the cost of other fixed dome systems. Our three year warranty is longer than many competitors' warranties, and our software support is unparalleled.
Digitarium systems are all single fisheye lens systems. There is no edge blending, color matching, image alignment, or synchronization required. This provides a better quality image and significantly lower maintenance costs. Our proprietary lenses are designed and built in the USA to our high standards using the finest imported optical glasses.
No other digital planetarium systems come close to matching our unique combination of usability, features, projection quality, product support, and affordable pricing. Because of the outstanding value of a Digitarium system, Digitalis is the largest producer by volume in the industry. This volume gives us greater economies of scale than any of our competitors.
If you wish to keep your starball but add digital capabilities, we have an elevator mount designed with you in mind. Raise the Digitarium system up when desired, and lower it to use your starball without any blockages. The off-center distortion correction features in our Digitarium systems will adjust starfields and media for an offset of up to approximately 30 percent of the dome radius. The elevator mount is only available for our Gamma, Epsilon, and Kappa models.
Fixed dome system purchases include our Universal Console™ web-based interface software. With the Universal Console, you can teach from a desktop computer in a control booth. For a more portable device, you can run the Universal Console on an Apple iPad®, to create a Digitarium SkyPad™. The SkyPad enables you to interact with all audience members, not just with those seated near your control console.

For new installations or for customers in need of more than just a new projection system, we proudly work with two industry leaders:
We offer a wide range of sizes for new domes as well as dome repainting through the dome specialists, Astro-Tec.
We offer professional grade solutions for cove lighting, audio, inset video, theater control, and content production through Bowen Technovation.
