CineEurope, Amsterdam – Booth 539
Lightspeed Design, Inc. / DepthQ® will be featuring the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for 3D Digital Cinema at the CineEurope tradeshow (Booth 539) in Amsterdam, June 28-30. When combined with a silver screen, the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator allows your digital cinema projector to display stunning stereoscopic 3D films, viewable using inexpensive passive circular polarized glasses. To date, it has been successfully demonstrated to Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures and has been listed in the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Approved Equipment List.
First introduced at Cinemacon in March of this year and then showcased at InfoComm11, the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator has received an amazing response. Units are currently deployed in the United States in Washington, Alaska, Michigan and California as well as internationally in Germany, Israel, Australia, UK, Turkey, China and the Philippines. Interest in the product continues to grow as orders flow in from around the world.
Paired with projectors up to 22K ANSI Lumens, DepthQ® provides a spectacular 3D experience for screens up to 13.7m (45ft). DepthQ® meets Hollywood’s demanding image quality standards by precisely and efficiently varying the polarity of light passing through it in perfect synch with the “triple-flash” of left and right eye images. An unprecedented symmetrical 50 microsecond switching time between the eyes ensures bright, low-crosstalk operation.

The system includes the liquid-crystal modulator as well as its control unit, plus hardware which mounts the unit to the front of your projector, and an actuator to move the modulator in and out of the projection path (for switching between 2D and 3D). Sync output from your projector’s GPIO port is supplied to the control unit, which then conditions the signal to match the modulator’s required input.
