The cinema industry is gathering again this week in Hong Kong for the 2012 CineAsia conference. During the show, a wide range of LCD 3D systems will be exhibited, with several quality options to choose from. The one detail not to be overlooked in these systems is their light efficiency.
complain that 3D movies are “too dark.” For this purpose, Volfoni's R&D
team has always concentrated its efforts on reaching the highest level of light
efficiency possible. As a result, Volfoni's SmartCrystalTM Cinema
polarization modulator has 18% light efficiency when tested with Volfoni's
passive glasses, much higher than the 14-15% of competitors' levels. Not to
mention the energy efficiency of the SmartCrystalTM Cinema, which
saves 20% to 30% of projector lamp light, a
cost-saving solution for exhibitors in terms of projector lamp usage.
intends to provide the best 3D movie experience to all viewers, combining great
comfort with spectacular 3D images seen from all seating positions.
Additionally, our SmartCrystalTM technology significantly reduces
the cost of 3D system ownership and maintenance for cinemas,” said Thierry
Henkinet, CEO of Volfoni.
Cinema allows the most beautiful imagery on the market in terms of both
brightness and color quality. Easy to install, the system sets up quickly with
any DCI-compliant DLP projector. It works with projector lamps up to 7kW, and
silver screens up to 60 feet wide.
the TN (Twisted Nematic) technology in a “Surface Switching” configuration (one
of the best types of liquid crystal), the SmartCrystalTM Cinema
reaches a very high transmission level and a very low color shift,” explained
Stephen Palmer, Chief Science Officer at Volfoni.
important technical point—Volfoni has optimized the anti-reflective layer
quality on the glass panel, reducing the loss of light by reflection on the
different surfaces of the panel. And regarding
the often-mentioned problem of “ghosting” in the world of 3D: Volfoni's
“Surface Switching” technology, combined with a specially optimized panel
coating, allows for a practically cross-talk free image.
3D technology has earned Volfoni already 2 prices at leading industry events: The
CinecAward 2012 in Munich and the “Innovative Global Industry” Award at 2012 Shangai
International 3D Fair.
