Flexible Picture Systems Introduces Image AnyPlace-3D for Home Theater and Pro AV Markets

TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2011 – Flexible Picture Systems (FPS) proudly introduces the Image AnyPlace-3D, a Passive 3D viewing kit that enables integrators to create movie theater quality 3D experiences in Home, Education and Professional environments.

Image AnyPlace-3D (IA-3D) is based on the already popular Image AnyPlace line of video scalers with Geometry Correction and Edge Blending. IA-3D adds new 3D capabilities to produce a high-quality, inexpensive and functionality-rich solution for 3D viewing. Image AnyPlace 3D creates fully immersive, passive 3D viewing that can be scaled to fit any projection screen size and accommodate any number of viewers. IA-3D’s passive system utilizes separate and simultaneous polarization for each eye, producing an overall more comfortable viewing experience. In addition, inexpensive disposable glasses are used instead of costly, headache-inducing, active glasses.

Important system features include:

• Compatible with popular 3D formats
• Automatically supports 2D and 3D inputs
• Functions with movie theater style and throw-away paper 3D glasses
• Can be simultaneously viewed by an unlimited audience size
• Audio delay compensation

The Image AnyPlace-3D viewing kit includes (2) Image AnyPlace-3D signal processors, an HDMI distribution amplifier, HDMI cables, polarizing filters and glasses, IR remote control and rack mounts. Designed for a simple integration, the kit can be combined with any (2) identical 2D projectors and any 3D signal source (i.e: 3D-enabled Blu-Ray).

“Image AnyPlace-3D produces a truly stunning 3D effect in smaller environments,” said Steve Wood, President and CEO of Flexible Picture Systems. “The Passive 3D environment of IA-3D is the only way to properly and cost-effectively experience 3D in the home or office.”

FPS will be demonstrating the Image AnyPlace-3D at CEDIA Expo 2011, Booth # 4967 – September 8th – 10th, 2011. For more information, please visit
