Immersive video represents a paradigm shift in the planetarium field: new opportunities for teaching and presentation will necessitate new ways of thinking about the medium. We can now present the discoveries of 21st-century astronomy with great fidelity and within an accurate three- dimensional context, but such possibilities expand our content area significantly and require creativity in their implementation. Furthermore, full dome video also demands a new approach to planetarium production, as taking visitors on a “narrative journey” that places greater focus on the audience experience. The planetarium community must grow with the technology we use, and the future holds both great potential
and tremendous challenges.
