Sharper pictures, brighter colors, starker contrast—with 8 brand-new high-performance projectors beaming images onto the wall and floor, Deep Space 8K in the Ars Electronica Center sets a new standard for high-definition visuals. Ton+Bild installed the projectors that makes it happen. This interview goes into the technical details.
To take full advantage of the breathtaking clarity in the new Deep Space 8K, the 8K resolution at 120 Hz and in stereo 3-D, it’s not enough to simply upgrade the hardware. The content to be presented also has to have what it takes to deliver the ultimate visual experience to audience members.
In Deep Space 8K, visitors can look forward to breathtaking visuals in 8K resolution on 16x9-meter projection surfaces on the wall and the floor. And processing the resulting flow of data — an awesome 23 gigabytes/second in real time — demands a special high-performance processor.
From August 7, 2015 the images in the Deep Space will be projected in 8K resolution. 8K means pictures in impressive sharpness and color intensity. The renovations to the Deep Space 8K are already in full swing.
