8K FULLDOME TAKES ON 1570 FILM
By Joe Kleiman
50 million individual pixels. As computed by Evans & Sutherland, that’s the number of pixels projected on a dome with a True 8K digital fulldome projection system. A smaller system, comprised of five 4K DLP projectors can achieve a 35 megapixel image, approximating the True 8K experience. But can such a powerful system take on and match the king of all film formats, 15 perforation/70 mm (1570) film, in both image and light output on a dome?
