XPAND Offers Safest 3D Glasses in Cinema

Trusted Methods of Sterilization Deliver Germ-Free Glasses With Every Use

LOS ANGELES, California – XPAND, the world’s leading developer of active 3D technology systems for cinema, television and gaming applications, continues to offer the most sanitary, environmentally friendly and highest quality 3D glasses on the market with its washable, reusable electronic 3D glasses and accompanying personal sanitary wipes.

Cinema exhibitors can sterilize the glasses after each viewing by running them through a washing machine or by offering antibacterial sanitizing and cleaning wipes to customers when the glasses are issued. Both methods ensure that every pair of glasses is clean and germ-free, reinforcing the safety of each consumer as they wear them during the 3D movie. In addition, the sanitary wipes allow the customers to re-clean the glasses before or during the movie if needed.

“XPAND has been pointing out the faults of low-cost, low-quality 3D systems that are using disposable 3D glasses. At the same time, XPAND developed and employs trusted methods of cleaning that are approved for the hospitality industry. Our cinema exhibition partners have invested in order to provide their customers the best 3D cinema experience. Any arguments to the contrary are coming solely from industry competitors,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND. “We have carefully examined the issue of hygiene and 3D glasses and we continue to offer consumers the highest performing, most sanitary and most ecologically responsible 3D glasses in the cinema market today.”
