Our Æthos (AY-thos) systems are high resolution, multi-projector digital planetarium systems for fixed domes of all sizes.

Æthos systems embody our time-tested design philosophy with our well-known focus on ease of use, quality, support, and educational integrity. We have eliminated most of the complexity and headaches typical of multi-projector systems so that you can focus on your audiences rather than your equipment.

Æthos projection/Nightshade NG lunar simulation.


  • 4k or 8k effective pixel diameter full dome projection for stunning detail.
  • High brightness, vivid color, and reduced cost of ownership with cutting edge laser-phosphor illumination.
  • Superbly engineered projection lenses for excellent projection quality.
  • Professional grade projectors for reliability and performance.
  • Physical masking for the darkest possible black level.
Æthos projection/Nightshade NG earth simulation.


  • Choose between cove or center mount options.
  • Automated projection calibration using a fisheye camera.
  • Operator's console desk includes integral equipment rack(s).
  • Digitalis' elegantly simple Unified Architecture reduces costs.
  • Quiet computer with add-on data bays for massive expandability. No costly climate-controlled server room required!


  • Powered by Nightshade NG Professional from Digitalis.
  • Patented calibration software automates image alignment, compressing hours of tedious manual work into less than three minutes.
