Laser Systems & Multimedia Equipment for Cinemas & Planetariums

Trendsetting cinema operators have already recognized early on that the medium of lasers can be used as a great unique selling point over the competition – especially since the spatial conditions in a cinema are almost ideally suited for presenting laser shows: the large cinema screen provides the space for projections, and the perfect seating arrangement is already there for spectacular beam shows into the audience. It's also relatively easy to generate additional revenue by showing switched commercials via laser projection, since lasers attract a particularly high level of attention from the audience. In planetariums and domes, LOBO's TriDome® technology creates impressive dome-filling 3D animations and three-dimensional beam effects into the audience at the same time. Combining several laser projectors, this novel approach captures spherically curved projection surfaces with a projection angle of up to 360 x 270 degrees. This enables mostly purely educational astronomy shows to be upgraded into a modern, dynamic infotainment spectacle. Even in new types of planetariums that are already equipped with full dome video, the combination of flat video image with sharply contoured laser projection accentuates the dome to great effect. The most famous planetariums in Germany rely on LOBO for good reason.

experimenta Science Center, Heilbronn

The Science Dome at the science center experimenta in Heilbronn is a globally unique combination of planetarium and event stage, made possible thanks to an elaborate revolving audience area. Assisted by video projectors and an audio system, LOBO’s TriDome® laser system, purpose-built for planetariums, is used to realize multimedia shows, while a LOBO Water Screen® is hidden within the stage area as an additional projection surface. In order to guarantee for the necessary laser safety, LOBO also developed an award-winning safety system based on LIDAR sensors specifically for the Science Dome.

Cineplexx Cinemas, Austria

Many of the major Austrian multiplex cinemas of the Cineplexx chain feature a LOBO laser system with three laser projectors for laser advertisement and the entertainment of the audience prior to the actual movie. Thanks to the participation in LOBO's Software Contract and the fully automated concept, the cinemas permanently receive updates – including a logo animation and an advertisement part.

Kinos und Planetarien

Planetarium, Hamburg

A planetarium designed to be more than just a place below the stars – in fact, it is actually a fully-immersive multimedia capsule. It features not only the essentials for a planetarium, e.g. a Digistar Full-Dome video projection system and a Zeiss Universarium star projector, but also a whole armada of LOBO laser projection systems, including a TriDome® system for full-dome laser projections, as well as laser projection robots. Everything is controlled via a LACON-5® system. An additional LACON-5® is provided for offline programming purposes.

Planetarium Stuttgart

The Planetarium Stuttgart has relied on LOBO laser technology for 12 years now. During this period of time, the laser system has been updated 4 times. With a total of 6 fiber-fed laser projectors and the first TriDome® full-dome projection system using 4 projectors, this planetarium is one of the innovators in using lasers for outstanding didactic presentations.

FDT Planetarium, Munich

When the planetarium in the “Forum der Technik” was inaugurated in 1992, its aim and its technical equipment were a revolution: In addition to didactic star shows, real infotainment spectaculars could be seen in Munich for the first time. This has been made possible also thanks to its LACON-5-controlled laser system with a total of 7 laser projectors, 3 of them could be lifted pneumatically into the dome, 2 of them were laser projection robots and one featured a Grating Box. Also the most successful planetarium laser show “Queen – Heaven” has been produced here in close co-operation with the LOBO Studios.

IMAX Cinema Linz 00

Kinos und Planetarien

IMAX Mega Movie Center, Linz

The first and, when it opened in 1991, the only movie theater of its kind in the German-speaking world. Thanks to the special IMAX projection technology, in which the individual image size is ten times larger than in conventional 35mm film images, the viewer seems to be drawn right into the action. With shots that look so real on the 6-story-high projection screen that you want to touch them, and this in combination with a tandem laser system that conjures up both razor-sharp projections on the screen and breathtaking beam shows into the audience.

Planetarium Mannheim

The Mannheim Planetarium is the first ever planetarium equipped by LOBO. The initial installation was made with a LACON-3 laser animation computer in combination with a single fiber-optic supplied projector. Due to its enormous popularity with the audience, the laser system was extended by an additional projector shortly afterwards at the end of 1991.
