At this year's CineAsia, Volfoni will present their entire line of 3D products for cinemas and the content display market (home theaters, education, events, corporate communications, meeting rooms, etc). Volfoni is one of the few companies in the world offering both active and passive 3D solutions. CineAsia marks the first time Volfoni will present their new generation of active glasses, EDGE 1.2, in Asia.
EDGE 1.2 are among the brightest, most high-contrast and lightweight glasses on the market. With a unique and innovative design, EDGE 1.2 glasses are customizable for all audiences, from children to adults (three sizes of arms are available: small, medium, and large). Theater owners can now be equipped with glasses that are instantly adaptable to all customers.
“Developed in Europe, EDGE glasses have allowed Volfoni to conquer new market share worldwide. We now want to offer Volfoni technology in Asia. CineAsia is a great opportunity for us to present our entire range of products. We already have an establishment in Hong Kong, and this conference is a chance to meet our clients and strengthen our presence in Asia,” says Alain Chamaillard, VP of Cinema Markets, Volfoni.
EDGE 1.2: Advanced technology for more efficient logistics
After the successful launch of EDGE 1.0 in 2010, the next generation version EDGE 1.2 comes to CineAsia with improved performance. Battery life has increased from 300 to 800 hours, and new liquid crystal lenses are in place, operating with unprecedented efficiency. Already recognized for their quality of customer service, Volfoni continues their constant customer support of theater owners. The company offers many accessories such as cleaning wipes, protective collection bags for the glasses, generic easy-to-replace batteries, maintenance tools and additional glasses arms to replace or customize the glasses per screening. It's a set of services that has already attracted many theater owners, and ensures that each 3D projection is an exceptional one.
Until December 31st 2011, in cooperation with its distributors, Volfoni is offering special bundled packages containing EDGE 1.2 glasses and an emitter kit (for example, a 3D Cinema Kit + 200 pairs EDGE 1.2 glasses, or a 3D CompactKit + 100 pairs EDGE 1.2 glasses)
A global passive 3D solution
While Volfoni is known worldwide for their line of active glasses for the cinema, EDGE, the company is also developing products that use passive technology: SmartCrystal Pro and soon, SmartCrystal Cinema.
Launched this past fall, SmartCrystal Pro is becoming a worldwide success. Ideal for presentations at meetings, conferences, classrooms, lectures, and home entertainment, this polarization modulator works well for all configurations that require simulations and visualizations of high quality.
SmartCrystal Pro is simple to install on all types of single-lens 3D projectors, eliminating concerns related to the alignment of double projection systems. The SmartCrystal Pro system is accompanied by Volfoni's high-end passive glasses, uniquely comfortable thanks to their ergonomic design.
Bringing much experience to the table, Volfoni greatly values theater owners and is currently working on a version of SmartCrystal that is made for large movie theaters. SmartCrystal Cinema allows for clear, bright images on all silver screens, and works with all circularly polarized passive 3D glasses. SmartCrystal Cinema is a real opportunity that will make for an affordable alternative, without constraints of exclusivity to current technology on the market.
