Screenberry360 media server in the heart of a giant 48m dome projection for MIT

October 2016
Cambridge, MA, United States

The capacity of our powerful Screenberry media server to output video to up to 72 projectors proved central for the unique immersive experience created by OmniSpace Inc. for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

MIT, the world’s mecca of science and engineering, approached Omnispace Inc. to light up a venue for the centennial celebration of its move to Cambridge and to raise funds for the Campaign For a Better World project. The idea was to integrate visuals provided by local artists into a 360° expression of MIT’s history and project it onto a massive 5K-resolution, 160 ft. immersive dome environment.

To accomplish the mission, Front Pictures provided its Screenberry Media Server and calibration services to auto-blend sixteen 20,000 lumen projectors. The result was a walk-in digital environment which created an ideal setting for this significant event.
