XpanD Powers 3D Cinema in Xtreme Cinemas in Czech Republic

March 27, 2009
XpanD, an international industry leader in 3D digital cinema technology, powered four Xtreme Cinema theaters in the Czech Republic to provide top-quality 3D movie-going experiences.

XpanD's new X101 series 3D glasses and other system components were installed by Xtreme Cinema's technical support and service arm, XCData Ltd., in theaters in Prague, Louny, Sokolov and Dobrany.

"We are extremely pleased to ally with Xtreme Cinemas in providing leading edge, digital 3D cinema in the highest quality presentation format to moviegoers in Eastern Europe," says XpanD CEO Maria Costeira. "As a dynamic, growth oriented company with considerable technical expertise, Xtreme Cinemas is helping to define the modern movie experience." Xtreme Cinemas Ltd is currently pursuing the expansion of its cinema network into the Slovak Republic, Hungary and Poland.

XpanD has just rolled out the X101 Series 3D active glasses in a sleek, new model providing increased efficiency, durability, customer comfort and exhibitor convenience. The glasses interface with an XpanD infrared emitter box to create high-quality stereoscopic 3D with any DCI compliant digital cinema projection system. XpanD's patented “pi-cell” technology works as a rapid stereoscopic shutter to deliver the alternate right- and left-eye images with optimal brightness, steadiness, depth and clarity.

Having more than 500 installations in digital cinema venues worldwide, with a leading market position in Europe, XpanD has taken a commanding lead in the 3D technology race to deliver superior stereoscopic active technology. Additional products and additional ventures will be announced in the coming months, as the company continues to grow its base of installations and develop a robust line of applications to serve the rapidly growing 3D exhibition industry.
