Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

By: Jaco

Konica Minolta introduces the , its next generation star projector.

The Infinium S can be combined with digital projectors, and is capable of synchronization with any other type projection and sound via SMPTE time code.

The Infinium S planetarium projector provides the smallest, sharpest, brightest stars ever created. All the star projections, Milky Way and deep sky objects are precision, laser cut artworks, powered by light valve technology and optically projected through diffraction-limited lenses. Sounds like a mouth...umm...eyefull! The motions of these projectors, as well as the light sources, are manually controlled to be user friendly with a graphical interface.

It is said Infinium S projects with such precision and realism that you can actually use binoculars in the planetarium for a closer view, just as if you were outside under the night sky. Faint stars can also be seen in the planetarium - like seeing the stars from space.

The 23 brightest stars projected by the Infinium S, each have their very own individual projectors. The projector even provides views from another planet. Stars even twinkle!

Using laser drilled plates, optical fibers and precision optics, the Infinium S creates some of the most realistic stars you will ever see.

The First Infinum S in the USA will be used at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. Shows will run Saturday nights from October 13, 2007
