Airflex5D Launches New Passive 3D System for Home Theater Presentations (15/1/2013)
Stand 6H-132, ISE 2013
AIRFLEX5D LLC. is a company dedicated to providing a Multi-Projector Stacking System create a high performance image capable of linear or circular passive 3D in addition to enhanced brightness. In addition to doubling up your projectors for amplified brightness, you can bring a passive 3D image into your home. Here is why Passive 3D in home theater is such a big deal. Active 3D is the traditional 3D home theater format but it has many drawbacks. Passive 3D is the “theater grade” version of 3D technology. It is superior to active 3D in many ways. Passive 3D gives a brighter image; it is much more comfortable on the eyes to watch and the glasses are exponentially cheaper. Until now, passive 3D was too expensive for small business and residential applications but all of that has now changed.
Airflex5D-5S is a projector stacking system that precisely aligns the images of multiple projectors vertically and horizontally into a single passive 3D (linear or circular) image. This is a groundbreaking opportunity for home theater enthusiasts because it finally makes the superior but costly passive 3D array affordable to the average consumer’s budget. The Airflex5D units can accommodate up to 1920 x 1200 resolution projectors with dual-channel geometric image correction while supporting de-interlacing, scaling and image enhancement. The innovative design creates a high-performance image similar to the high-dollar 12000 Lumen 1080P projectors with a choice of circular or linear passive 3D performance. For 3D simulation on curved and dome screens, the Airflex5D processors even have geometric correction. Geometric image correction is essential for commercial presentations that utilize an uneven projection surface. This feature of the AF5D-5S is crucial in projecting on extreme curved or dome screen projection arrays.
Enhanced brightness, another great feature…High –end 1080P projectors that produce 10000+ lumens are upwards of $50K to $80K or more! When breaking down the cost-to-performance, this is about $5-8 per lumen in picture brightness. However, with an AF5D-5S system, you can get similar results by using a combination of 4x standard 3000 lumen projectors with a pair of AF5D-5S stacking processers and get similar results while paying on average below $1 per lumen.
The AirFlex AF5D-5S is a ground breaking design that pairs cost effectiveness with simplicity as a single-box solution to double (or 4X, 8X...etc) the Brightness in 2D, or passive 3D projected images.
Pricing, Availability, Warranty
AirFlex5D-5S Series will be available in October 2012 through the AirFlex5D LLC EPV Custom Install Integrator Channel only. It comes with AirFlex5D LLC two-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.
