For the First Time in Europe, at the Cebit Conference in Hanover, Germany March 1 – 5, Volfoni® Will Unveil Activeyes®

A New Generation of Hybrid/Universal 3D Glasses
As a sneak-peak for Europe, French company Volfoni®  will exhibit their latest product, ActivEyes®, at CeBIT trade show in Hanover, Germany, March 1 – 5. ActivEyes are a new generation of intelligent 3D glasses, revolutionizing the way we view 3D content.
 
ActivEyes® are the first truly universal glasses – eliminating the choice between active and passive glasses. Developed by Volfoni, this hybrid active/passive technology allows users to view 3D content on any platform. The glasses work with all brands of active 3D screens (TVs and PCs), as well as with all passive 3D screens (commonly used in movie theaters).
 
However, what makes ActivEyes® glasses particularly special is their visual quality. Without a doubt, they are the most comfortable 3D glasses on the market, as well as the brightest in terms of luminosity.
 
“Over the past 2 years, we have been working on developing this technology. We didn't want to make any compromises. We have listened to the consumer's demand for lightweight, universal glasses with a long battery life,” says Thierry Henkinet, President of Volfoni, emphasizing the company's goals.
 
The ActivEyes® system is composed of the glasses and a mini electronic “box,” which can be attached to clothing. Aware of the economic challenges of 3D, Volfoni also offers a unique technology which allows the mini “box” to be used with a hub, which can connect to several pairs of glasses at one time. This is an advantage for family or friends who want to watch 3D content together. “We are actually testing ActivEyes® glasses with professionals. We are listening to each and every critique before launching the glasses to the general public. Their quality and lightness have already captivated many 3D post-production studios,” notes Bernard Mendiburu, Director of Innovation at Volfoni.
 
Fast facts about ActivEyes®:
-First glasses in the world to offer both active and passive technology

Along with ActivEyes®, which are for personal use, Volfoni will also present their line of multi-user glasses: EDGETM 1.0 IR and EDGETM 1.1 DLP© LinkTM.
 
EDGETM 1.0 serves the cinema and audio-visual market.

With more than 50 models of DLP© projectors currently on the market, professionals in fields such as teaching, architecture, communication, engineering, etc will be able to use 3D images to improve the quality of their presentations, using only a projector and a set of glasses.
