Christophe Bertier:

After 20 years in the planetarium industry, you might think I’ve seen it all there is to see and it’s time to move on. Wrong! Our industry has reinvented itself with new digital planetarium technology and in the last 20 years we’ve refined it by making it useful, affordable, and reliable for everyone. So what’s next?

The essence of our industry is about bringing new information (simulation and visualization) to our community so we can effectively educate and entertain in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. In this environment there are always new ways to do more. And this is exactly why I have chosen to join Evans & Sutherland.

Digistar 6 software is most impressive - dedicated to astronomy simulation and so much more. With Digistar 6, anyone can make simple or complex science presentations, bringing all the STEAM topics into play. Digistar software enables you to assemble programs with its native resources, and it opens doors for creating your own content.

While still learning my way through thousands of features, I greatly appreciate using Digistar 6 and in particular its amazing sensitivity for the needs of users. Everything is at your fingertips, and with few actions you can prepare a presentation - or even deliver it live. Digistar 6 is not only powerful software, but a powerful solution for any planetarium dome. With Digistar 6, you save time and get better results than with any other software.

Make a perfect video display! It’s as simple as a mouse click to auto-align and auto-blend in minutes. Put streaming video (internal or external) on your dome. And share your presentations with any Digistar Theatre around the globe with the Digistar Cloud Library and Domecasting.

Working with E&S is a great opportunity, and I am delighted to join the talented E&S sales and technical teams. I totally embrace the E&S philosophy to better serve customers with better products and support to enable them to “Do More.”

And if you’d like to know which features I really like so far, here is my list: online high-resolution textures and elevation data, Digistar Atlas, ShowBuilder, Navigation, Dome View drawing, black hole rendering, opening to external content (ESO, NOAA, KML, Unity, …) and Auto Align/Auto Blend.
