XpanD, the international leaders in 3D cinemas and technologies, united with patrons of Europalaces Theaters in France attending the new Disney animated movie Bolt 3D by providing the XpanD Series 101 3D glasses, which launched this week in a sleek, new model, that produces the brightest, flicker-free stereoscopic image possible.

"Moviegoers who enjoy Bolt 3D on the XpanD system will be getting the top-of-the-line experience of this great new Disney release," says XpanD CEO Maria Costeira. "Europalaces now has the power of 3D exhibition and will be able to delight customers with many more of the excellent 3D titles that are coming out of movie studios today."

XpanD supplied Europalaces theaters with 10,000 sets of the newly upgraded X101 Series 3D active glasses that work in conjunction with an XpanD infrared emitter system to transform any DCI compliant digital cinema projection system into a 3D system. The Europalaces installations have also been equipped with 20 DCP-2000 digital cinema servers from Doremi Cinema who has been instrumental in the global digital deployment, particularly in France.

Having more than 400 installations in digital cinema venues worldwide, with a leading market position throughout Europe and Asia coupled with 100+ installs scheduled for the first quarter, 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 and provide theaters and their customers with the best possible 3D experience.
