An upgraded Kyiv Planetarium chose Screenberry media server to deliver a 4K digital sky. A single media server provides a smooth 360 video playback on a 23-meter dome by driving and auto-aligning 12 x Benq MW705 projectors.

Apart from screening fulldome shows, the Kyiv Planetarium is now also able to deliver astronomy lectures with the help of SpaceTime360™, hold presentations with Presenter360™, and entertain visitors with Meduza360™.

The new system replaced an old one installed by Front Pictures in 2011. The upgraded planetarium received a brighter projection and a new generation of fulldome applications developed by Front Pictures.

The Kyiv Planetarium is the biggest and oldest planetarium in Ukraine. This massive fulldome theater with a capacity of 320 seats has an annual turnout of 150,000 visitors.
