2012 CES: XPAND 3D Shows Off Automated 3D System

Hey 3D fans, are you tired of constantly having to click that little button on your 3D glasses or tunnel down through a series of menus to get your television into 3D mode when you want to watch something converted to 3D? Well at the International CES 2012, XPAND 3D is introducing what they are calling “the world’s first fully automated 3D Ecosystem”, which will automatically detect whether a viewer is wearing 3D glasses and configure their display  for 3D operation. The 3D Ecosystem works with XPAND’s 3D Electronic Eyewear and a compatible display device such as a TV, projector or computer.

XPAND says the Ecosystem works using bi-directional RF communication between the glasses and the TV. Whenever the wearer puts the XPAND 3D Glasses on, the glasses will automatically send a signal to the TV that tells it to switch to 3D mode. When the user takes the glasses off, the TV automatically switches back to 2D mode. The XPAND 3D Electronic Eyewear has an automatic on/off mode that activates when the user puts the glasses on and takes them off. The glasses can also be configured to users’ preferences with individual 3D preset settings.

“As 3D broadcast standards evolve into a single stream that contains both 2D and 3D, our innovative glasses will allow our customers to watch 3D only by wearing glasses, and to watch 2D only by removing the glasses,” said Ami Dror, Chief Strategy Officer for XPAND 3D. “The displays will simply follow the indicators from the glasses. Such features along with other innovative features like automatic on/off, and automatic individual user 3D presets, make the 3D experience more user-friendly than ever before.”
