Volfoni’s SmartCrystal™ Pro, Complemented with a Severtson Projection Screen, Truly Brings the 3D Movie Theater Experience to Small Cinema Rooms, Such as in the Home
Mesa, Ariz., USA, Sept. 21, 2015 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com),a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the home theater, commercial, and pro AV markets, is pleased to announce that it will feature the new Volfoni SmartCrystal™ Pro 3D Modulator (www.volfoni.com)in an active display with Severtson’s line of silver 3D Impression, Deluxe, and Deluxe Curved projection screens during CEDIA Expo 2015, held in Dallas from Oct. 15-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth # 7004. Designed as the ideal DLP-projector enhancement for passive 3D, Volfoni also offers dedicated LCD and DILA variation of the SmartCrystal™ Pro, making it compatible to almost all home theatre projectors available in the market today.
“Volfoni, just like Severtson Screens, is a widely recognized and respected name in the cinema industry providing 3D solutions to movie theatres globally…and together, we literally bring the movie theatre 3D experience into the home,” said Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “The SmartCrystal™ Pro is an ideal choice to watch 3D movies in the home as well as unique corporate and commercial settings. It is a great complement to our line of silver 3D coated Impression, Deluxe, and Deluxe curved screens, which can also be applied as a custom option to any of our electric screens.”
In small cinema rooms such as in the home where budgets are often a key issue, the SmartCrystal™ Pro allows the user to spend less on both the 3D projector, and significantly less on 3D glasses. “As a result, utilizing the new SmartCrystal™ Pro with a compatible and technologically advanced yet modestly-priced 3D projection screen gives you a terrific home 3D experience, just as if you were out at the movies,” added Severtson. “We are excited to demonstrate it along with our line of 3D projection screens at CEDIA this year.”
Volfoni’s new DLP-based SmartCrystal™ Pro 3D Modulator is ideal for cinema rooms from 10 to 50 seats, and is used in conjunction with Full HD 1080p projectors and silver-metallic 3D projection screens. Expensive active 3D glasses are not necessary as the SmartCrystal™ Pro makes use of inexpensive passive 3D glasses possible. The SmartCrystal™ Pro 3D is simply placed in front of the projector so that the projector’s image passes through it, polarizing it onto the screen where passive 3D glasses bring the image to life.
“Viewers enjoy crisp and bright scenes using our proprietary ‘Surface Switching’ technology,” explained Jérôme Hamacher, COO of Volfoni. “The set-up is so easy, and the result so significant, that when utilized with numerous compatible projectors and a silver 3D projection screen, the SmartCrystal™ Pro 3D Modulator makes one’s budget go a long way for a terrific 3D experience. We look forward to sharing this experience alongside Severtson Screens during CEDIA.”
