Projection Systems

Seiler Instrument has a range of planetarium products to offer. Whether you are constructing a new visual simulation lab or or upgrading an existing planetarium, our team of experts will help guide you to one of our systems that that will suit your needs. Many of the ZEISS systems can be customized to help you get the features and functions you need without paying for extra bits you may never use. Our projection systems can be categorized into the following options:

Velvet LED Fulldome projection systems cover the dome in an immersive simulation display using digital video projection, night sky simulation software, and show playback capable of displaying content across a wide range of topic and disciplines.

Hybrid planetarium systems combine the best of both worlds – crisp, bright starfields from a ZEISS star projector, and digital displays to enhance the educational range and take the audience on an immersive journey beyond the Earth-based view of the heavens.

The unparalleled simulation of the classic view of the night sky is achieved through fiber-optic stars and a wealth of didactic functions. For astronomy education and simulation of a realistic sky, the ZEISS star projectors are the primary instrument of choice.

Seiler Essentials is our line of budget-friendly display solution for show presentation, astronomical simulation and live presentation. Essentials pairs up professional projection and powerful tools in combination with our own user interface, providing you with an easy point-and-click control to take your audiences on a tour of the known universe.


Accessorizing your theater isn’t about breaking out the interstellar bling, but rather getting the basics right, such as the dome, lighting, sound, and seats. Seiler will work with you and your architects to get past many of the common mistakes overlooked during construction, or simply guide you through a few things to keep an eye on as you go about the renovation process. We also work with you and our suppliers to simplify your payment structure and reduce the hassle that comes with multiple contracts. What’s even better? We don’t charge for a bit of advice. We’ve got some experience and want to help our customers get through their upgrades quickly, so they can start inspiring the next generation of explorers, scientists, and critical thinkers.

Domed screens come in a variety of sizes, styles, and budgets. Let us help you pick the right one for your unique needs.

LED cove lighting is far more than simply a utilitarian illumination source. Proper lighting can inspire, add a layer of theatrical effects and be used to teach.

Audio is another important dimension for sensory immersion. We can customize a system to fit a wide range of budgets while delivering a great part of the overall experience for your visitors.

Comfortable seating is available through a number of suppliers. Whether you are looking for permanent installation or movable to accommodate events, we will sit you down to talk about options and arrangements for your venue.
