In a groundbreaking product introduction, XPAND 3D today announced the XPAND Infinity™, a complete 3D system that is designed to deliver the best possible viewing experience in any cinema. The XPAND Infinity system features two different models of eyewear and offers optimal 3D performance, multi-directional synchronization and the highest 3D contrast ratio ever delivered.
“XPAND Infinity was created to deliver the most spectacular 3D experience ever,” said Maria Costeira, CEO, XPAND. “It is adaptable to a wide variety of cinemas and screen types including the world’s best and largest venues, and brings a new level of 3D realism and excitement to moviegoers.”
Using the patented Infinity controller, XPAND Infinity can support almost any screen size, shape and surface. Whether the screen is 300 feet or 30 feet wide, flat, curved, dome-shaped or even Cinerama format, XPAND Infinity will transform the theater into the finest 3D environment. The system works with any type of screen surface.
XPAND Infinity is packaged with seven controllers, and a choice of XPAND Infinity or XPAND Infinity Deluxe 3D glasses. XPAND Infinity Deluxe glasses combine a new, stylish appearance with exceptional 3D viewing performance. The lightweight Infinity Deluxe eyewear offers up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and comes with rechargeable batteries. Their ergonomic design ensures long-wearing comfort.
Meanwhile, the XPAND Infinity 3D glasses have a lightweight, functional design and provide up to 37% transparency and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses are shaped for comfort and use replaceable batteries.
The XPAND Infinity system provides the brightest, most vivid and realistic 3D images achievable, without ghosting or artifacts for any viewer in the theater. An unlimited number of Infinity systems can be linked together to operate as a large-scale system.
In addition, XPAND Infinity and XPAND Infinity Deluxe Glasses are equipped with RFID tags. RFID technology can be used for anti-theft purposes, allowing theater owners to track and monitor each pair of glasses.
“XPAND’s new Infinity glasses were developed in order to provide optimal quality. In addition, we made sure that the Infinity glasses are a cinema owner’s best friend,” Costeira added. “The new glasses are more durable and allow the cinema management to monitor its inventory and usage levels throughout the cinema location in real time. Some of our beta sites achieved a 3DCPU (3D Cost Per User) of less than 4 cents US, making XPAND the best and most cost-effective 3D system on the market.”
