Fulldome refers to immersive video projection environments on a dome that is either horizontal or tilted. The videos are in a 180°x180° monoscopic or stereoscopic format.

History

external image Cosmonovas+salong.jpg
The first public demonstration of fulldome video covering a full hemisphere took place in 1998 at the International Planetarium Society Conference in London, UK. Two digital animations were projected to the audiences, Pillars of Creation by Don Davis and Space Station by Home Run Pictures.

The first feature films were presented in 2004, the Immersive Cinema movie R+J (Romeo and Juliet) by LivinGlobe and the fulldome animation feature film `Kaluoka´hina, the Enchanted Reef by Softmachine. Live-Action fulldome videos are becoming more available for dome use as digital video camera resolutions increase.
