InfoINTECH is a unique, exciting interactive centre administered by the educational charity, The Hampshire Technology Centre Trust Ltd, with the specific purpose of promoting the knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The Planetarium:
During your visit to INTECH, come and experience the UK’s largest capacity planetarium. Our enormous tilted dome screen completely surrounds you, placing you right in the action. Relax back into your reclined seat and fly through the solar system, visit a black hole, or find out what you can see in the sky tonight. Both pre-recorded and live shows will be shown.

We would like to thank SEEDA for funding the installation of this world-class facility.

Digital technology:
Planetarium technology has advanced beyond recognition in recent years. We can show not only the stars, but full-screen video using our state-of-the-art digital projection system. Our cinema-grade surround sound system adds to the feeling of total immersion (especially when the low rumbles shake the floor!) There is simply nothing like it.

INTECH’s system, designed and installed by Global Immersion, relies on a bank of computers running six different projectors. These projectors have been highly calibrated and blended to produce a seamless high-contrast image across the entire dome.

In addition to playing pre-rendered shows, UniViewTM software by SCISS allows real-time flight around a universe based on actual scientific data. This allows a seamless zoom from high-resolution Earth images to the entire observed universe. The system can even be ‘flown’ from a wireless Xbox controller!
