Hawaiian for Starry Heavens, Windward Community College’s Hōkūlani Imaginarium is a high-tech planetarium and multi-media facility.
The Hōkūlani Imaginarium operates with a Definiti 4K full-dome system from Sky-Skan. DigitalSky 2 technology allows audiences to experience immersive adventures in a true 360° environment. Viewers feel like they are part of the unfolding scene, whether it is falling through a black hole, flying through Saturn’s rings or witnessing the beginnings of the universe. The upgraded projection system can also display 3D stereo images.
This full-dome system fills the planetarium’s screen with high-resolution images that are eight times sharper than HDTV. Two JVC SH7 projectors hidden behind the dome provide a high-contrast seamless picture.
