A 16 by 9 meters wall and 16 by 9 meters floor projection, laser tracking and 3-D animations were the specialities of the Deep Space since 2009. An all-out upgrade of the venue’s technical infrastructure of the Deep Space will enable audiences to enjoy projections at 8K resolution and thus worlds of imagery at a never-before-achieved level of quality! A visit to Deep Space 8K promises to be extraordinary, fascinating, impressive, breathtaking.
