Volfoni announces the next-generation of active 3D glasses for cinema

While theater owners across France gather at the 66th annual FNCF (National Federation of French Cinemas conference, held 19-22 September in Lyon), 3D solutions company Volfoni announces their latest model of active 3D glasses – EDGE 1.2

Building on last year's success of EDGE 1.0, EDGE 1.2 showcases the latest in 3D technology developed by the French maker. By utilizing high-speed liquid crystal lenses, EDGE 1.2 glasses allow for more light (luminosity) and striking picture contrast. The lenses are covered in a new protective film, significantly extending the life of the glasses.

Other innovations for EDGE 1.2 include a more universal nose-piece, as well as a new surface coating which reduces the weight of the glasses from 58 to 56 grams.

Volfoni will soon offer an optional anti-theft feature for the glasses: integrated RF technology. This technology stops viewers from sneaking the glasses outside the theater, and saves theater owners from having to invest in costly security gates, says the company.

EDGE 1.2 retains all the previous innovations currently available with EDGE 1.0: same ergonomic design, a low-cost generic button battery, and three sizes of adjustable arms (S, M, L), so both adults and children can comfortably watch 3D content, says the company.
