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
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.
