XPAND 3D, AVRover partner to create portable education solution2 January 2013
XPAND 3D – a specialist in 3D technologies for cinema, with systems used by over 5,000 3D cinemas in more than 50 countries – and portable education solutions company AVRover have partnered to develop and distribute co-branded 3D glasses for the education market. The first 1,000 pairs, which are based on XPAND’s g EDUX3 glasses, are currently being manufactured and will be part of AVRover’s “3D AVRover” portable 3D presentation systems.
The 3D AVRover includes a 3D DLP projector, 3D computer with 3D content, three built-in speakers, a mixer amplifier with microphone input as well as XLR out, laptop connections, two locking storage drawers, a retractable power cord and heavy duty casters. The 3D AVRover provides a complete 3D education solution in a single portable unit, which creates a sharable resource between classrooms.
The XPAND EDUX3 3D glasses are said by the company to feature the fastest active-shutter technology on the market for the best and brightest 3D images available, with their extended white-light range capability giving them the longest viewing distance in the industry. EDUX3 3D glasses work without any installation; they simply need to be turned on to view 3D content. The glasses also use standard, over-the-counter CR2032 batteries for easy battery replacement, with an average of 100 hours of battery life.
“We have enjoyed a successful relationship with AVRover’s use of XPAND 3D glasses in their products and the new co-branded XPAND/AVRover glasses are the next step in this collaboration between two leaders in 3D education,” said Jodi Szuter of XPAND 3D. “The 3D AVRover integrates a high-quality, all-in-one interactive 3D learning solution and we are looking forward to seeing our co-branded glasses in schools throughout the U.S.”
“XPAND 3D has been instrumental in bringing a high quality 3D experience to the classroom. We are proud to co-brand such a phenomenal product that has become integral in the 3D AVRover solution,” said Douglas Smith, president of AVRover. “The ultimate goal is to increase student achievement and our collaboration on these glasses is only the beginning of what AVRover and XPAND 3D will bring to the education market.”
