Domecasting

Domecasting

Digistar 6 features the powerful Domecasting feature that independently enables Digistar 6 theaters to schedule and broadcast live dome presentations to other D6 theaters in the community. Domecast schedules show up in the Digistar user interface, so that other theaters can tune-in to live presentations and experience them simultaneously. For example, in a Digistar theater or from a Digistar workstation anywhere in the world with an Internet connection, a well-known scientist or personality can give a live presentation, and dozens of theaters can watch and interact with the Domecast as it is happening. Digistar can display a video of the presenter on the dome along with their live audio. All theaters have access to a chat window so audience members can ask questions during the Domecast.
