Equipment Room


Equipment Room

Not all of the equipment we need for our presentations is located in our Theater. The Equipment Room houses all of the electronic devices that are needed "behind the scenes" to make our Planetarium shows work.

Two of the electronic racks contain audio equipment. The Planetarium can play open reel, cassettes, CDs, and digital audio files. One rack contains video equipment. We can play VHS tapes, laser discs, DVDs, and digital video files. The fourth rack contains our planetarium automation system.
