Professional and consumer cinema 3D solutions manufacturer Xpand 3D has announced that it is launching a new Home Theater Division.
The move comes as the company looks to address the growth of the home theatre 3D market. The new Home Theater Division will focus on better serving the needs of systems integrators and customers in home theater segment of the market.
The new division will be led by Philippe Coissac, head of global home theatre sales.
“Since our beginning, Xpand has been committed to providing the best and most technologically advanced 3D products to consumers, and 3D has become a major part of the home theatre experience,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of Xpand 3D.
“We saw that the time was right to create a dedicated Home Theater Division to focus specifically on the requirements of dealers, custom installers and retailers who service the home theater space. We are here to accommodate their needs, give them a direct line of communication and enable them to provide optimum 3D solutions to their customers!”
Xpand manufacture YOUniversal 3D Glasses and AE125 IR emitters for home theatre applications. The glasses are designed for long-wearing comfort, and are available in a variety of colours, sizes and styles, and can be configured to communicate with infrared (IR) and radio frequency (RF) 3D systems.
Furthermore, Xpands’ AE125 IR emitter is specifically designed to meet the requirements of home theatre environments. The AE125 is installed at the front of the theatre and aimed at the viewers, providing full coverage in domestic applications where bouncing the IR signal off the screen (the 3D synchronization signal required by the glasses) is impractical. The AE125 utilises 56 high-power, wide-angle diodes and can be used by up to 50 people.
