We are planning for two awesome days at our next UUG at the California Academy of Sciences on September 21-22! The agenda will be mixed with presentations and workshops concerning new features in Uniview 2.0, a guest lecturer from NASA Ames Research Center, inspirational sessions by our users, and of course - hangin´ about with the best user group in the world.
We´re thrilled to announce that Paul Tetu is joining Sciss as new Senior Project Manager, starting this week. Paul, a well-known person amongst planetarians, has a long carrier in the planetarium industry and will bring a great deal of experience into his new role at Sciss.
At Sciss´s new planetarium blog, launched today (!), our CEO Staffan Klashed talks about his vision for planetariums the next two decades. How can we as an industry shape a strategy to remain and grow increasingly relevant? In a new white paper, The next 20 years: A vision for planetariums in the 21st century, Staffan identifies three major trends that will decide the future of planetariums.
This summer, in the beginning of August, we are launching a new industry forum in the form of a blog at sciss.se/blog. The purpose is to spread the best-of-breed - knowledge, ideas and experiences from people with a broad variety of perspectives. The blog will mostly feature guest writers, to bring in perspectives from outside our own sphere.
The Planetarium and Visualization Theater, located on the University of Alaska Anchorage campus in Alaska, USA, is now taking the step to install Uniview Drop-In™ on their existing system. From August they will be able to expand their programming capacity with the full power of Uniview 2.0.
Sciss is now introducing Uniview Drop-In™ - an easy and quick installation package of only three extra servers, and a cost efficient way to get access to the full suite of the Uniview fulldome software. The solution is developed for any display system that is comprised of a two-channel 4K projector solution.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Mike Dowling as new Director of Business Development at Sciss.
We are seeking a Technical Project Manager to help realizing the next generation of tourist and educational attractions all over the world.
We´re looking for an outstanding administrator to our Stockholm office to be in charge of economical tasks as well as administration of deliveries, HR support and office management.
In May 2015 Sciss opens a state-of the-art planetarium in the newly built Sharjah Center for Astronomy and Space Sciences in the United Arab Emirates. About 35 kilometers from Dubai,
an 18.5 meter hemispherical dome screen will awe up to 200 visitors at the time with tours through the universe, planet exploration and night sky observation.
On March 21st, the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History arranged a "Brain Day", which over 1200 people attended. Visitors got to learn brain facts, talk to neuroscientists - and even dissect real sheep brains.
One of the activities presented was Neurodome´s "Neurotours", a real-time live tour of the brain that was held in the digital planetarium. Almost 400 people attended 13 half-hour presentations,
led by the Neurodome team in cooperation with Sciss.
On March 5th, the first Kavli Prize Lecture
Tales from the Outer Solar System by 2012 Kavli Prize Laureate in Astrophysics, Michael E. Brown, will take place at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. The presentation, which will be held and visualized in the planetarium, will be broadcasted live to three other dome theaters in the United States. The sharing technology, called
domecasting, is a unique feature introduced by Sciss.
2015 is here, and we want to give you a heads-up about the first Uniview User Group of the new year. It will take place March 1st at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in connection with the 2015 IMERSA Summit,
and the main focus will be the new features in Uniview 2.0.
After 6 years of development, neuroscientist Jonathan Fisher and his Neurodome team have reached a first important step in their project to visualize brain data for dome use.
In partnership with SCISS, the two can now offer the dome market an environment for real and mind-blowing neuroimaging in the Uniview fulldome software.
We are delighted to welcome a new developer to our Development team – Daniel Hultgren.
SCISS is now recruiting for four new positions at our headquarters in Stockholm. We’re looking for a Content Developer, Project Manager, Senior User Manager and a Technical User Manager.
In 2015, the Malta Council for Science and Technology will open the doors to the National Interactive Science Center, a complex that will occupy several of the most imposing and magnificent buildings overlooking the entrance into the Grand Harbour in Malta. The site comprises of 4 buildings and an outdoor space each of which will be pivotal to displaying exhibits and presenting live science.
One of the buildings will be a stunning 10.7 meter in diameter planetarium, and we´re very happy to announce that SCISS will build and install a complete Colorspace 4K theater system at the site.
