MEDIALON controls impressive dome projections in the Hong Kong Space Museum’s Theatre
The 8, 000-square-meter Hong Kong Space Museum has recently renovated the Stanley Ho Space Theatre. The theater, sheltered beneath the museum’s famous egg-shaped dome, is part of the planetarium area of the museum.
Integrated by PCCW, one of the leading AV and IT solutions company provider based in Hong-Kong, a Medialon Control system is part of the cutting-edge digital planetarium system installed in the Stanley Ho Space theatre.
The Hong Space Museum, which hosts a diameter of 23 meters hemispherical projection, is one of the first planetarium in the world to possess a fully automatic control system in its theatre. It has also been the first to have installed an OMNIMAX film projector in Asia.
The world highest resolutions Sky-Skan Definiti 8K full dome system is driving 6 sets of SONY T110 SXRD video projectors for impressive full dome moving pictures, and many others advanced audio visual devices.
Inside the theatre, the Medialon system coordinates the e:cue based LED lighting system, a Dataton Watchout multi-display system, a Yamaha digital mixer controlling multi channel sound to the 13 clusters of MeyerSound loudspeakers behind the dome, the OMNIMAX large format film projector, as well as the Carl Zeiss planetarium optical projector through special automation interface, together with a SPICE package from Sky-Skan to easily run different types of show in a day.

The powerful Medialon Low Level Communicator (LLC) driver ensures good connectivity to different devices, especially those in house custom made system.” says Kai-Ming Wong, Project Manager at PPCW. “All these advanced functions and features help to maintain quality in show delivering.”, he concludes.
