The Digitarium SkyBox is an easily portable, stand-alone computer designed to complement or substitute for a full-dome planetarium system. In this time of pandemic related restrictions, this can be a way to still make shows available and get development and training work done. It is a more affordable option to start out with than a full planetarium system.
What does the SkyBox do?
- Runs Nightshade NG and other Digitarium planetarium system software. Allows you to teach outside the dome on a flat screen. Allows you to stream programs to audiences anywhere, any time. Provides a practice environment for your presenters when your dome is not available to them (such as at home). Facilitates developing and testing StratoScript software scripts and (if applicable) Augmented Lessons when your system is unavailable. If you already have a Digitarium system for your dome, your SkyBox licenses will mirror your control computer licenses (Universal Console, data sets, etc.) for a full test environment. Can be a way to raise awareness and funds for a full planetarium system, with the potential to reuse your SkyBox in the final system.
