Lightspeed Design Features DepthQ Polarizers, HD-3D Projector and 3D Software at SIGGRAPH 2011

Lightspeed Design, Inc. / DepthQ® will be featuring two models of the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator, the DepthQ® HDs3D-1 Stereoscopic Projector and new DepthQ®Player™ software at Siggraph 2011 in Vancouver, Canada August 9-11 booth #478.

DepthQ® Polarization Modulators

The new DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for 3D Digital Cinema (DCI) was first introduced at Cinemacon in March of this year and received an amazing response. It easily meets Hollywood’s demanding image quality standards and has been successfully reviewed by executives from six major Studios and is listed on the Walt Disney Studios Approved Equipment List.

The DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for Advanced 3D Visualization comes in two sizes, large (up to 18.5K lumens) and small (up to 4K lumens) and is currently in use for conference presentations, event marketing, trade shows, industrial applications, e-Cinemas, simulators, themed entertainment venues and academic institutions.

When combined with a silver screen, DepthQ® Polarization Modulators allow 3D digital projectors to display professional-quality stereoscopic 3D using passive circular polarized glasses. Paired with projectors up to 18.5K ANSI Lumens, DepthQ® polarizers provide a compelling 3D experience for screens up to 13.7m (45ft). DepthQ® polarizers function by precisely and efficiently switching the polarity of light passing through them in perfect synch with the left and right eye images, whatever your flash rate. An unprecedented symmetrical 50 microsecond switching time between the eyes ensures bright, low-crosstalk operation.

Features include:

* Bright, low-ghost 3D
* Crisp, sharp image
* Heat-tolerant, DCI and Large models accept up to 18.5K Lumens, Small model accepts up to 4K Lumens
* Supports 3D screen sizes from ~2-13.7 m (6-45 ft)
* Simple, easy to setup and use
* No moving parts – low cost/maintenance
* Works with all DLP 3D ready projectors
* Compatible with standard circular polarized 3D glasses
* Two position actuator allows easy switch between 2D and 3D (standard for DCI, optional for all other models)
