Adding the third dimension : avielo by projectiondesign® launches optix 3D at CEDIA Expo
Based on the Residential Systems magazine’s RESI Award-winning avielo optix Full HD projector, the avielo optix 3D adds proprietary image processing to display 3D images from Blu-ray Disc players and sources supporting 3D stereo from their HDMI 1.4 outputs.
“With more and more 3D feature films now playing at every movie theater, it is only natural that consumers are getting excited about having 3D in their homes, too,” comments Anders Løkke, International Marketing & Communications Manager, projectiondesign. “The avielo optix 3D DLP® projector from avielo by projectiondesign is our solution to this customer need – allowing convincing 3D images to be created in a home-theater environment, without compromising image quality, brightness, contrast, or consistency of color rendition.”
To create the most compelling 3D experience, the avielo optix 3D uses specially designed high-resolution lenses with aspherical glass elements, with enhanced, low-dispersion glass. This delivers superior definition and enhances the 3D effect even further. The projector supports 3D through both HDMI and DVI, and, unlike most 3D projectors marketed towards consumers, uses full bandwidth processing and imaging, without the reduction in resolution and image quality deployed by many other brands. Staying up to date is easy, as the optix 3D can receive software upgrades from a remote source via its built-in IP network connection.
Summing up, Løkke says his company’s long pedigree in 3D product development gives it the edge when it comes to delivering stereo excitement to home-theater fans. “Our professional 3D projection solutions are what many movie-makers turn to when they are color grading 3D images shot on location, adding 3D effects in post-production, or previewing finished 3D features,” he points out. “And in the visualization field, our 3D solutions are used in dozens of different industries all over the world.
“We are not newcomers to the world of stereo 3D. We know what it takes to produce an astoundingly realistic 3D image, and we believe that when they see it for themselves, custom installers and their customers alike will be blown away by the avielo optix 3D designed for the home theater.”
