The PANRAMA System
As the first dome projection system ever to use a single film, PANRAMA was invented and patented in 1958 by Philippe JAULMES, architect in Montpellier, France. PANRAMA completely embraces the spectators and takes them inside the image which is no longer within a frame: it is limitless. Immerged in the image, the eye is now free and the whole surface of the retina is stimulated, as close as possible to real visual perception. Consequently, the viewer gets an incomparable feeling of space and depth.
On the PANRAMA screen, almost 180°, the spectator's eye discovers a new universe, as it does in real life, to find its place in its surroundings. This is what makes the PANRAMA system such an important tool in visual simulation and creation, and why it is used by professionals and for research, as well as for general audiences.
PANRAMA is a registered trademark.
