SkyView™ Digital Cinema

The world's first virtual skylight with feature-length scenes.
A biophilic portal of beauty and wholeness.


Sky Factory's SkyView is a digital cinema, a multisensory illusion of real sky that restores occupant wellness by providing a beautiful, therapeutic focal point in isolated spaces.

This self-contained system uses a professional-grade monitor embedded within a faux skylight framework to tether visual content to the architectural context. The result is a multisensory illusion that imbues interior environments with a restorative conduit to open skies.

SkyView offers designers and facility planners an innovative architectural feature that mitigates the deleterious impact of artificial environments lacking nature's healing multisensory stimuli.

Using the highest quality image capture and the most realistic skylight framework, SkyView displays the beauty of nature's skyward events, triggering the automatic “Relaxation Response” we experience in nature.
