A Screenberry media server is now at the heart of a brand new fulldome theater in Castellana Grotte. This town is one of the main tourist destinations of Italy’s southern Apulia region. It is famous for its caves, a complex of underground cavities of karst origin that attract thousands of tourists annually.
A single media server drives and auto-aligns 4 x BenQ W1210 ultra short throw projectors to provide a 3K x 3K 3D fulldome playback on an 8m dome. The server also provides fast access to fulldome shows from the world’s top producers as well as flexible licensing options, thanks to its built-in DRM system. The whole projection system, including automatic calibration and 360-degree playback, is controlled wirelessly with the help of intuitive applications installed on an iPad and laptop.
The FP HDx4 projection system was supplied and installed by Front Pictures.
