In 1967, Sky-Skan began creating unique special effects projectors for planetariums. In the 1980s, SPICE Automation products synchronized shows for planetariums and large-format film theatres. In the late 1990s, SkyVision sparked a digital revolution bringing fulldome video to planetariums. Today, advances in hardware and our DigitalSky Dark Matter software have resulted in Definiti, an immersive fulldome digital theater system capable of real-time astronomy and science visualization in addition to entertainment, and art. Definiti theatres include Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, Warsaw's Copernicus Science Center, Barcelona's CosmoCaixa Science Center, ‘Imiloa Planetarium (Definiti 3D: world’s first 3D stereo planetarium), the luxurious Queen Mary 2, and the Beijing Planetarium (Definiti 8K: world’s first 8K resolution fulldome theater). Further 8k theaters followed in Hong Kong, Macau (World's first 3D 8k), and Miami Florida. Now Telus World of Science in Edmunton Canada has received the world's first 10K resolution planetarium.
