XPAND 3D and Christie® Digital Usher In a New Era of 3D Cinema With Laser Projection Screening of Hugo at IBC 2012

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – In a landmark event, XPAND 3D, the world leader in 3D for the cinema, home and beyond, today announced that an XPAND active 3D system will be used with a Christie’s first laser projector for the screening of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo 3D at the IBC show in Amsterdam on Monday, September 10.

This marks the first feature-length 3D film to be screened using laser projection technology and also the first public screening of a 3D movie shown at full 2D movie specification brightness (14 FL). The screening will be the final event of the IBC Big Screen showcase, which is dedicated to featuring the latest in cinema technology.

The system will include XPAND Infinity 3D glasses, which provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses’ lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema. All new XPAND cinema systems and glasses fully support HFR (High Frame Rate) double and single flash at 96fps, 120fps, 144fps, 192fps, 240fps and even variable fps.

“XPAND firmly believes that laser projection technology represents the future of cinema projection and everyone who attends the IBC Big Screen Monday Night Movie will see why,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND 3D. “Moreover, the viewers will benefit from wearing our Infinity 3D glasses, which delivers the most immersive and dynamic 3D experience available in the world!”

“Advanced 3D glasses combined with the proper light levels and, in the months to come, high-frame rate content, will increase the enjoyment factor of millions of moviegoers around the world when viewing 3D projections, and we welcome XPAND’s participation in Monday’s groundbreaking event,” said Richard Nye, Cinema Sales Director, Christie EMEA.

The screening will take place at the 1,700-seat Amsterdam RAI Theatre at IBC and will begin at 6:30 PM.
