ActivEyes® glasses by Volfoni, serving the professionals of NABshow 2011

Volfoni, partner to 3D creators
French company Volfoni will present their latest innovation in 3D glasses, ActivEyes®, at NABshow in Las Vegas from April 11 14, 2011.

ActivEyes® are hybrid active/passive glasses. Consumers will no longer have to choose between purchasing active or passive glasses. With ActivEyes all-in-one technology, developed by Volfoni, 3D content can be viewed on any type of screen (TV and PC), including all brands and all technologies.

ActivEyes® glasses incorporate 4 major innovations: design, optics, electronics, and software. The electronic portion of the glasses is housed externally in a small pod that can be clipped to clothing or handheld. This lightens the weight of the glasses, making ActivEyes much more comfortable to wear. ActivEyes use the latest generation of ECB (Electronically Controlled Birefringence) optics, offering exceptional visual quality that surpasses all other LCS (Liquid Crystal Shutter) technology. ActivEyes are the most comfortable glasses on the market and supply the highest luminosity and brightest images available from 3D glasses. The high-end electronic component, which includes fully progressive software, allows ActivEyes glasses to be updated and immediately adaptable to all future advancements by screen manufacturers.

ActivEyes glasses are a simpler investment for professionals because there is no need to choose between passive, active, or easily upgradable technology. “Over the past two years, while developing this technology, we listened carefully to feedback from longtime professionals in the industry. We are pleased that the result is a state-of-the-art product that is generating so much positive response. Because ActivEyes glasses are high quality, lightweight, and have a long battery life, they are attracting attention from many animation and postproduction studios,” says Thierry Henkinet, President of Volfoni.

“During NABshow, we will continue to do beta testing, listen to professional feedback, and strive to provide our customers with 3D glasses perfectly suited to their needs,” notes Bernard Mendiburu, Director of Innovation at Volfoni. With an ongoing commitment to innovation, Volfoni is currently developing new interactive functions, such as multi-view mode. This would allow the user to view different types of content on the same screen, an advantage particular to active glasses. The possibilities are endless, especially in the education and entertainment markets.

You can find Volfoni at NABshow from April 11th 14th, at Booth C11839 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

  • First glasses in the world to offer both active and passive technology 
  • One of the most lightweight glasses on the market, weighing in at 1.02 oz (29 g) 
  • Compatible with all 3D screens, including TV and PC
