Planetarium Solution

Since ancient times humans have desired to understand the universe. While our ancestors looked to the sky, these days many of us study astronomy in planetariums. Though astronomy can be vexing, it doesn’t have to be. According to Mehrabian’s rule, 55% of the sensory information we receive is visual. Furthermore, colorful and graphically rich content helps viewers retain information 82% more effectively. Offering projection solutions for circular video walls and interactive globes, BenQ can help planetariums show the secrets of the universe through immersive interactive experiences that visitors won’t soon forget.

Why are BenQ Laser Projectors suitable for application in planetariums?
  • BenQ’s 4K UHD laser projection technology ensures that planetarium-goers will be able to clearly see every astronomical object, from the most brilliant planets to the faintest stars, in vivid detail
  • BenQ can deliver interactive globe projection that allows visitors to interact with 360° spherical models of the planets and moons
  • 360° Installation, Optional Lenses, Motorized Zoom, and Lens Shift features grant planetariums a variety of installation options that make it easy create fully immersive experiences
  • BenQ’s exclusive MDA software lets operators manage and monitor multiple devices from a central location, streamlining the process of changing content and ensuring that all displays and projectors perform at their best

Ultimate Performance and Versatility for Large Public Venues
BlueCore Laser Projection for Long-Lasting Superior Image Quality

By combining a solid-state BlueCore Laser module with innovative DLP technology, BenQ Laser Projectors are engineered to produce unrivaled high-lumen brightness. This allows planetariums to create realistic models of planets or the universe that will be clear even in well-lit rooms. To harness the high output of BlueCore laser light, the BenQ Laser Projector’s dual color wheels are fully integrated to produce flawless RGBY color with enhanced color intensity, balance, and fidelity.

Dual Color Wheels for Optimal Color Performance

The BenQ Laser Projector's powerful BlueCore laser projection utilizes a dual color wheel system to produce unparalleled color performance. Reaching up to 95% of the Rec. 709 standard, BlueCore technology lets viewers appreciate the true vibrant colors of the planets or the subtle hues of space.

DLP Technology for Vibrant Color that Lasts

BenQ Laser Projectors are based on the absolute reliability of the 1-chip DLP design. The highly durable DLP chip can last over 100,000 hours without degradation, ensuring true-to-life colors and pristinely legible text over countless uses.

4K UHD Image Quality for Flawless Presentation with Subtle Details

With four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p, 4K UHD can produce interactive star charts and globe projections that will leave planetarium-goers awestruck. Delivering 8.3 million pixels of high-brightness performance, BenQ Laser Projectors make it possible to create images that are nearly indistinguishable from reality.

Integrated Edge Blending for Panoramic Projections

Edge blending adjusts the brightness near intersecting areas of multi-screen projections. Meanwhile, color matching can be used to calibrate differences in the color output profile of each projector. BenQ Laser Projectors also feature Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP) modes for enhanced multi-source projection.

Excellent Installation Flexibility
Short-Throw Design for Unobstructed Viewing Without Space Constraints

Producing larger-than-life images in tight spaces with a 0.8 short-throw ratio, LK953ST eliminates distracting shadows and glare so that viewers can focus fully on the exquisite beauty of the universe.

360° Rotation and Optional Lenses for Ultimate Installation Flexibility

360° rotation and portrait orientation capabilities allow for a multitude of installation options, especially when combined with optional lenses. These lenses maximize installation flexibility and let users choose exactly where and how big they want projected content to be. With 360° rotating projection, BenQ Laser Projectors empower planetariums to create comprehensively immersive experiences that are full of captivating detail and have zero gaps or blind spots.

Motorized Zoom, Focus, Lens Shift and Memory

BenQ Laser Projectors boast a wide range of convenient systems to assist with fine adjustments, including motorized zoom, focus and horizontal/vertical lens shift systems. This combination of features can help planetariums overcome unique installation challenges such as raised ceilings and surfaces with sharp angles. Furthermore, customizable memory enables multiple settings to be saved and recalled to optimize projection characteristics for a variety of content and applications.

Ensure Consistent Brightness Blending with Custom Light Mode

Custom Light Mode modulates light power output from 20% to 100% in increments as small as 0.5%, allowing planetariums to realistically simulate the night sky’s transition from dusk to late night and back to dawn and clearly portray how stars and other astronomical objects shift throughout the night. It also lets planetariums optimize projected content for a wide variety of ambient light conditions and makes it possible to blend multiple projected images with consistent brightness.

Stay in Control with BenQ MDA Software

BenQ Multiple Display Administrator (MDA) software dashboard enables projector control, identification and task management from a single computer. MDA can simplify routines such as opening and closing procedures with scheduling features and by allowing remote power on and off.
