CAVE technology was yesterday. Deep Space is right now.
Experience a new dimension of travel through space and time. Immerse yourself into breathtaking 3D stereo universes featuring jumbo-format, high-definition images that will absolutely blow you away!
In Deep Space, you can experience far-away, unknown and historical places. You’ll see what used to be invisible. Your perceptions of familiar sights will undergo a radical shift, and you’ll be amazed by previously hidden details revealed by perspectives that are impossibilities in the real world. The spectrum of projects on display in Deep Space ranges from artistic works that utilize a wide array of graphic techniques and approaches all the way to interactive storytelling, from architectural and art historical visualizations to images shot by state-of-the-art cameras positioned in outer space. The technological heart of Deep Space consists of eight 1080p HD- and Active Stereo-capable Barco Galaxy NH12 projectors. The images are projected onto mammoth 16x9-meter displays mounted on the wall as well as in the floor. A great vantage-point view and a dizzying shift of perspective is available from the Deep Space Platform set up at an altitude of about five meters.
The technology installed in Deep Space makes it possible to produce uniform displays with a resolution measuring 2,160 pixels high and 3,840 pixel wide. Through the use of edge blending, the images projected next to each other on the wall and floor can be merged together pixel by pixel until the areas of overlapping are ultimately undetectable.
Behind the scenes, there’s some very sophisticated computer technology at work, which makes the most highly effective environment available for each of the respective applications in Deep Space.
