|At InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Volfoni introduce
SmartCrystal Pro, their latest innovation in passive 3D technology inside the 3D pavilion, Booth 6165. This polarization modulator marks Volfoni's first foray into passive 3D systems for professionals and consumers.
With SmartCrystal Pro, Volfoni now provides a passive system that works with any single-lens 3D projector. When placed directly in front of the projector lens, the SmartCrystal Pro polarization modulator generates 3D images onto a silver projection screen for viewing with passive glasses. Volfoni will also be releasing newly designed passive glasses that are highly comfortable, durable, and lightweight.
An ergonomic design that combines both high performance with top-notch engineering, Volfoni's SmartCrystal Pro is suitable for both professionals and consumers. It's suitable for boardroom presentations, conferences, classrooms, lectures, or any setting where high-quality simulation and visualization are key. It is easy to set up with any single-lens 3D projector, thereby eliminating the alignment issues associated with dual projector systems.
The polarizer is made up of a multi-layer stack of liquid crystal elements based on Volfoni's, newly developed, Surface Switching Technology. It allows for high-speed operation and optical efficiency. SmartCrystal Pro operates at 120Hz, creating sharp images and utilizes circular polarization to prevent loss of contrast should the viewer tilt his or her head. It can be connected directly to any suitable 3D input source and works with projector strength up to 10,000 lumens. Volfoni's polarizer can also be connected to a computer via USB cable, allowing the user to adjust the settings of the LCD to optimize image quality for any venue.
This is Volfoni's first entry into passive 3D systems. SmartCrystal Cinema is currently in development for larger venues. Volfoni is now covering all segments of the 3D market and is one of the few companies in the world to provide a wide range of 3D technologies and products.
