XPAND today introduced the new YOUNIVERSAL series 3D electronic eyewear that optimizes the 3D experience by modifying the 3D parameters specifically for each user and for different 3D environments. The high-end electronic eyewear offers unprecedented personal optimization, full HD 3D performance, advanced interoperability between all 3D devices and market-leading comfort and style.
Using a specialized smart phone app, XPAND YOUNIVERSAL glasses can be optimized to address the fact that every human’s eyes and facial structure are unique and that each user’s viewing requirements and environment are different. Available in black, gray and red in male and female sizes, the new YOUNIVERSAL high-end glasses will begin shipping in April 2011 and will communicate with Infrared (IR), Bluetooth (BT), Radio Frequency (RF) and DLP-Link. The smart phone app will initially be available for Apple iPhone™ and Google Android™ platforms.
“The YOUNIVERSAL glasses put YOU in universal,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND. “Recognizing that no two people view 3D in the exact same way, we have designed our electronic eyewear to comprehensively address the unique differences in people’s vision, the viewing environment and selection of 3D devices. In doing so, we’re creating the ultimate 3D experience!”
Artistically designed by the acclaimed Gigodesign studio, XPAND YOUNIVERSAL electronic eyewear provides remarkable comfort and style. XPAND’s approach to the development of the YOUNIVERSAL glasses is one of no compromise. “The glasses feature the best—and only the best—innovations,” Costeira added. “Every parameter from viewer optimization, interoperability, unit weight and comfort was evaluated and XPAND made groundbreaking improvements in every category. This new high-end product starts a new era of 3D lifestyle. XPAND proves once again that 3D quality is essential. Anything short of full HD 3D performance is a weak, unacceptable compromise!”
The new YOUNIVERSAL glasses are not simply the lightest active shutter 3D glasses in the marketplace, they’re also the fastest by a significant margin. Moreover, their ability to operate across so many different communication protocols brings a new level of universality to the 3D experience. “XPAND is deeply committed to maximum 3D quality,” said Ami Dror, XPAND’s Chief Strategy Officer. “Only active 3D glasses can provide full HD 3D experiences, but this is only the first step in 3D evolution. Our YOUNIVERSAL 3D glasses are personally optimized to the individual human visual capabilities with maximum comfort and customizability that allows them to work in all modern 3D environments.”
