“It’s no longer just about what’s happening on stage, it’s about what’s happening inside the entire audience.” ― James Dolan, Ceo of Madison Square Gardens
Multiple Sizes Serving a Variety of Venues and Audiences
Serving a variety of Event Venues, Immersive 360° Projection Sphere technology is a game-changer for innovators, event planners, artists and attendees alike. A projection sphere is assembled, rather than built, from prefabricated modular triangles that lend it unparalleled strength. One of the notable design elements unique to geodesic-engineered architecture is that Projection Spheres can be customized to any size – from town-square sized monolithic structures to mobile, freestanding projection spheres, geared toward serving smaller niche audiences.
For example, the largest projection sphere in the world, the colossal Las Vegas MSG Geodesic Sphere, unveiled July 2023 near the Sands Venetian and Palazzo complex in Las Vegas. By way of contrast, small to medium-sized projection spheres offer unlimited uses for niche audiences.
“It takes the definition of ‘interactive’ to new heights, with game-changing technologies that push the very limits of connectivity for the ultimate audio-visual experience for concerts, sports events and trades shows, like none other.” ―Irving Azoff

The Madison Square Garden (MSG) Projection Sphere begins with a story of two visionaries, who overcame entertainment industry challenges by envisioning a continuum of possibilities; thereby, launching a new form of Sphere Technology that has succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.
Here’s what music industry mogul, Irving Azoff, had to say at a recent unveiling by MSG CEO, James Dolan in New York, simultaneously airing in Los Angeles:
“This venue will pioneer the next generation of immersive experiences and revolutionize the way artists and their audiences connect.”
Welcome to the Future of Audio Technology
Developed by Holoplot, a German company, Sphere technology projects sound, in whatever width or height you want it to be, much the same way as a laser or spotlight. This technology, known as ‘beamforming audio’, gives everyone the best seat in the house through digitally focused beams.
In a traditional stereo system, you only get the best sound when you are right dab in the middle. If you move to either side, you’ve lost the imaging.
In a constructive way, the MSG Sphere is disruptive, in that it transforms an old model by sending sound directly to a specific location, rather than blasting it over speakers. What’s so cool, is that an audience in one section can experience images and music that are different from those experienced by an audience in another section. For example, at an international symposium event, a French speaking section can hear content translated into their own language.
VR Projection Domes
VR Projection Domes are designed to give everyone the best seat in the house! Through the magic of geodesic-engineering and the medium of Immersion Technology along with projection mapping, 360⁰ Projection Spheres create a rich environment for the benefit and enjoyment of all audiences.
360° VR projection tent domes for outdoor theaters and planetariums play a key role in the future of interactive entertainment and education, inviting live audiences to make deeper connections with the world around them through dynamic group energy. The open space of the dome theater provides the perfect spatial entertainment and educational platform for shared human interactions.
Mobile 360° VR Projection Domes for outdoor theaters and planetariums play a key role in the future of interactive entertainment and education, inviting live audiences to make deeper connections with the world around them through dynamic group energy. The open space of the dome arena provides the perfect spatial entertainment and educational platform for shared human interactions.
