Digitarium® Kappa 1 Fixed Digital Planetarium System
The Digitarium® Kappa 1 Fixed model is a digital planetarium system designed for use in permanent domes.
Full dome/full sky projection is available at a projection angle of 167 degrees. This is ideal for fixed domes, as the projection system is placed below the springline of the dome out of audience sight lines.
The Digitarium® Kappa 1 Fixed model is designed for those who want good resolution and projection quality in a fixed Digitarium system at an affordable price. Fulldome video shows, immersive environments, scientific visualizations, and starfields are all projected with excellent detail, thanks to the high contrast and our high quality proprietary lens.
The Kappa 1 includes our high-resolution data sets of the Earth and solar system for spectacular planetary exploration with incredible detail.

|Maximum Dome Diameter
||Around 52 feet/16m. Brightness
is the main
issue, since the larger the dome,
the larger the surface area the light from the projector must cover.
|Field of view
||180 degrees, full sky.
|Pixels per degree of sky
|Angle of Projection
|Base Projector Brightness
||7650 lumens with non-fisheye lens (Provided for comparison purposes with other systems. Actual brightness with a fisheye lens is significantly less due to not projecting the whole video rectangle and differing lens properties.)|
||Nominal projector contrast is up to 8,000:1.|
||Up to 2000 hours on high
The projector has two lamps which can be used one at a time, or both together for the brightest projection.
