Cosm will continue to grow its community of immersive creators and fulldome studios like AMNH and plans to expand its Premium Media Programing collaborations in the near future. As part of this initial program launch, Cosm will offer more than 40 fulldome films including three films produced by AMNH to the global network of Digistar planetariums that have joined Cosm’s Premium Media Program. Cosm will continue to focus on premium science and education films for its Premium Media Program, while also expanding the program’s offering to include family friendly and alternative fulldome content.

“We created this program to ensure that Digistar Planetariums have easy access to a variety of fulldome shows,” said Neil Carty, VP, Head of Cosm Studios and Labs. “Not only is this a tremendous value but it gives planetariums the flexibility to adjust their yearly programming, attract new visitors, and offer fresh, new content. Whether you are emphasizing school field trips or looking to present family focused shows, the Premium Media Program allows greater flexibility for you to meet your mission and grow your audience. Our team is happy to work with you to develop a content program that fits your needs.”
