Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that it has reduced the price of its reusable 3D glasses. Starting today, Dolby exhibitors can purchase new 3D glasses at a list price of US $27.50, reduced from US $39.00, making them even more cost-effective.
“The success of Dolby 3D around the world has enabled us to realize significant economies of scale. We are pleased to announce that our green, reusable 3D glasses are now offered at a significantly reduced price,” said John Carey, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Products, and Services, Dolby Laboratories. “We highly value our exhibitor relationships worldwide and with this announcement, we demonstrate our continued effort to improve the value of owning and operating a Dolby 3D Digital Cinema theater.”
Dolby’s 3D glasses are high-performance, environmentally friendly passive glasses that require no batteries or charging. Because they are reusable, the per-ticket cost of Dolby® 3D glasses is expected to be well below the cost of disposable 3D glasses. In addition, exhibitors aren't required to constantly track and order additional disposable 3D glasses.
