Zaxel's Orochi Stereo Server Installed at the Adler Planetarium

CHICAGO, IL (December 12, 2009) — The Adler Planetarium in Chicago has installed Zaxel’s Orochi Stereo Server for 3D movies and interactive application presentations.

Orochi drives 2 HD projectors that use linear polarization technology to create a stereoscopic viewing experience. With a mathematically lossless compression on video, 6 channels of uncompressed PCM audio and support of 24, 25 and 30 fps, Orochi has the highest quality 3D video and audio playback capabilities.

“The Adler selected Orochi because of its easy operation system, which can be used to create and present 3D movies using a variety of sources,” said Doug Roberts, senior director of digital technologies at the Adler.

In the Adler's 3D Universe Theater, 3D shows related to space science are shown daily to audiences using very high video and audio quality. The Adler creates these shows with partners from around the world.
