Science Museum of Virginia revives interest in planetarium shows with "The Dome" and new 8K E&S Digistar digital video system

Attendance numbers are up dramatically and the Science Museum of Virginia is making the most of its new versatility thanks to a new Evans & Sutherland Digistar 5 8K system in The Dome, its renovated, 243-seat theater, open since March 15, 2014.

The attention of the museum and planetarium community will be on this 8K digital transformation of a dome that formerly emphasized IMAX films. My new article about The Dome and its new technology includes interviews with Jim Peck and Justin Bartel at the Science Museum of Virginia.
