Ball State University produces original fulldome, digital planetarium shows. Programs include original content (animations, 3D models, music, etc.) created by students, staff, and faculty.

To create our amazing programs, Ball State uses its production dome, which includes a RSA Cosmos 2K digital system under a 9-meter dome. Our final testing is done on the 16-meter 4K dome to ensure the best quality programs.
