VENICE, Italy – For the fifth consecutive year, XPAND 3D is providing its world-leading 3D cinema systems for the 69th Venice International Film Festival. One of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, the Venice International Film Festival is taking place August 29 through September 8, 2012.
The aim of the Venice International Film Festival is to raise awareness and promote all the various aspects of international cinema in all its forms: as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and tolerance. The Festival includes retrospectives and homages to major figures as a contribution towards raising awareness of the history of cinema.
XPAND will be providing 3,000 of its Infinity 3D glasses at Sala Grande and 1,000 Infinity glasses at Sala Darsena and Sala Perla.
The XPAND Infinity 3D glasses provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses' lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema. All new XPAND cinema systems and glasses fully support HFR (High Frame Rate) double and single flash at 96fps, 120fps, 144fps, 192fps, 240fps and even variable fps.
“With interest in 3D cinema at an all-time high, XPAND has embraced the increasing demand for higher-quality 3D technology with our Infinity glasses,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND 3D. “At the 69th Venice International Film Festival, some of the most astute viewers in the cinema industry will be attending the 3D screenings at Sala Grande, Sala Darsena and Sala Perla. Therefore it is crucial that the most sophisticated 3D technology be deployed for these screenings, which we are happy to provide.”
“The Venice International Film Festival is built upon excellence in the film industry and this demand for excellence extends to the technology,” said Angelo D'Alessio, head of digital cinema systems, Venice International Film Festival. “When it comes to 3D technology, there can be no compromise, which is why we continue to turn to XPAND for our 3D screenings.
