XYZ Technologie Culturelle, in collaboration with the American firm Sky-Skan, which specializes in designing planetarium shows, has created the two immersive domes in the new Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, which opened on April 6 of this year. Forty-six years after the advent of the first planetarium in Montreal, this new facility provides the city with exclusive, unprecedented technology. “The combination of traditional optical technology for projection of a starry sky and video offers viewers the only immersive experience of its kind in Quebec,” confirms Jacques Larue, partner at XYZ.
