DomeLab is Australia’s first ultra-high resolution (4K) experimental fulldome – a unique, low-cost display system integrating technical innovation in computing power and graphics capabilities with aesthetic innovation in content delivery. It is an immersive, dome-based video projection environment 6m wide, horizontally suspended over users and filled with interactive real-time or pre-rendered content. It has a projected resolution of 4K (4096 × 4096 pixels). Eight projectors and four+one high-end workstations with dual graphics processing units drive the projectors in concert with a surround audio system using 5.1. The hardware configuration allows seamless edge blending and geometry correction of the eight projected images across the dome.
