XPAND Universal 3D Glasses - Press Release

Comment by Projector Reviews staff:
XPanD is perhaps doing more to make sense out of Active 3D glasses than anyone else in the industry.  As one of the major players, and in competition with  (but also offering) private branded glasses for the manufacturers.  XPanD is the innovator.  They've already address critical issues that the bundled active glasses coming with most 3D capable LCDTVs and plasmas have yet to address at this time.
For example, in our testing 3D projectors, most glasses lost sync with the content if you turned away for more than a second or two.  That is turn to a friend, and when you look back, the glasses would have to sync up again. With XpanD glasses even 6 months ago, they could hold the sync for about 15 seconds or so, a drastic improvement over the competition.
Now XpanD is shipping universal glasses.  This is critical for the success of 3D, and they are out there leading the rest.  Buy the new glasses, and you can use them on most brands LCDTVs (and projectors).   When I have a football party, even if I have 8 pair of active glasses (not cheap), I might have 20 people over - say half of them have 3D sets and glasses (not likely), the point normally, is that whatever brand of display I'm using, people who have glasses for other brands won't be able to use them at my party.
That incompatibility just significantly raises the cost of owning a 3D home theater using active glasses for everyone with friends, for example.   Anyone with a 3D display should be absolutely sure to make any extra pairs of glasses they buy, be universal ones.    And right now, that means XpanD.  Manufacturers, though aren't dumb.  I suspect in a year, most of their glasses will be at least somewhat "universal" as well.   But, for now, this is THE game in town. -art
