Lightspeed Design, Inc. / DepthQ® is pleased to announce the debut of the new DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for 3D Digital Cinema at the CinemaCon tradeshow (Booth #305A) at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 29-31. 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.
Paired with projectors up to 18.5K 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 DepthQ® Polarization Modulator is co-developed by Lightspeed Design, Inc. and LC-Tec Displays, AB. The two companies have over 18 years of experience in their respective fields of stereoscopic design and liquid crystal manufacturing and development. Lightspeed Design is the exclusive worldwide distributor of the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator.
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.
