The Elbedome is a mixed reality laboratory for large-area presentation of interactive visualizations. Far exceeding classic projection systems in its dimensions, the Elbedome is especially ideal for presenting large objects such as machinery, plants, factories or entire cities on a scale of 1:1.
The Elbedome resembles a cylinder in shape and is 16 meters in diameter and 6.5 meters high. Its 360° projection surface thus covers more than 300 m².
Six state-of-the-art laser projectors deliver images of highest quality. The images' depth of field and color mapping far surpasses that of conventional projectors.
The surrounding projection surface gives viewers the sensation of being located directly in the midst of a virtual world (immersion). Various options for interaction such as an infrared tracking system and a variety of direct input devices are available. They enable one or more users to work with a projected virtual environment simultaneously.
