CADENS is producing three ultra-high-resolution digital documentaries that will premiere at giant screen fulldome theaters and will be scaled for wide distribution to smaller theaters found at a growing number of museums, planetariums, science centers, and academic institutions. “Digital fulldome planetariums are the fastest-growing immersive theater format today,” said Mike Bruno, Creative Media Director at Spitz, Inc. From these dome documentaries, CADENS will reformat and produce long form and short form documentaries that will be distributed on Internet and broadcast television internationally. CADENS is also producing flat screen 4K and HD Internet and broadcast television documentaries.
