CineAsia, Hong Kong—Dec 11, 2012

Volfoni’s “Surface Switching” Technology Shows the Highest Light Efficiency Among 3D Systems Based on Lcd Polarization Modulators.

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. 

Audiences often 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. 
 
“Volfoni 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. 
 
SmartCrystalTM 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. 
 
“By choosing 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.  
 
Another 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. 
 
This innovative 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.
 
Be sure to visit Volfoni at CineAsia, booth #801.
