In a significant and strategic move to address the growth of the home theater 3D market, XPAND 3D, the world leader in consumer and professional cinema 3D solutions, today announced that it has established a new Home Theater Division to better serve the needs of systems integrators and customers in home theater. The division is led by Philippe Coissac, Head of Global Home Theater Sales.
“Since our beginning, XPAND has been committed to providing the best and most technologically advanced 3D products to consumers, and 3D has become a major part of the home theater experience,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND 3D. “We saw that the time was right to create a dedicated Home Theater Division to focus specifically on the requirements of dealers, custom installers and retailers who service the home theater space. We are here to accommodate their needs, give them a direct line of communication and enable them to provide optimum 3D solutions to their customers!”
“Movie enthusiasts want to enjoy the excitement of a true cinema-quality environment in their home theaters, and XPAND YOUniversal 3D Glasses and products deliver the ultimate in 3D viewing,” Costeira continued.
The XPAND YOUniversal 3D Glasses and AE125 IR emitter deliver unsurpassed 3D image quality in high-performance home theaters.
XPAND’s YOUniversal 3D Glasses optimize the 3D experience for every viewer, by accommodating the fact that every person’s eyes and facial structure is different, and that each wearer’s viewing requirements and home theater system are different. Designed for long-wearing comfort, the glasses are available in a variety of colors, sizes and styles, and can be configured to communicate with infrared (IR) and radio frequency (RF) 3D systems.
XPAND’s AE125 IR emitter is specifically designed to meet the requirements of home theater environments. The AE125 is installed at the front of the theater and aimed at the viewers, providing full coverage in domestic applications where bouncing the IR signal off the screen (the 3D synchronization signal required by the glasses) is impractical. The AE125 utilizes 56 high-power, wide-angle diodes and can be used by up to 50 people.
