RealD Introduces RealD LP, The World’s First Mobile, Single-Projector 3D Solution

Jim here. If you have been to a movie theater to see one of the recent crop of 3D movies like Monsters vs. Aliens, you have probably seen RealD 3D technology. The 3D experience the technology provides is fantastic and makes movies very enjoyable - I have seen other formats in action and I keep coming back to RealD.

The company behind the RealD technology has announced a new portable projector for 3D viewing called the RealD LP to bring the power of its 3D technology to the small screen. The device is claimed to be the world's first mobile single projector passive 3D solution.

The projector is capable of changing between 3D and 2D on the fly and can be set up in minutes as a portable projector or mounted for a permanent projector. The device is suitable for screens up to 17-feet wide and is an externally mounted peripheral for 3D-enabled DLP projectors.

Here is the press release:
After dazzling tens of millions of filmgoers worldwide with attention-grabbing 3D, RealD, the world’s leading 3D technology company, is introducing the RealD LP™(Linear Polarizing Z Screen) to bring the power of 3D to the small screen. The world’s first mobile, single-projector, passive 3D solution, the RealD LP brings the vibrancy of high-quality 3D to smaller venues such as conference rooms, R&D centers, museum exhibits, mobile education centers, virtual rides and other entertainment attractions. Designed to be set up for individual 3D presentations in minutes, or permanently mounted for long term use, the RealD LP allows the flexibility of switching between 2D and 3D on the fly while alleviating maintenance and other issues of dual-projector 3D systems.

“3D content is more engaging, memorable and productive,” said Joshua Greer, president of RealD. “The RealD LP creates stunning 3D images for small or medium size audiences anytime, anywhere, bringing new possibilities to using the power of 3D in presentations, product development and virtual attractions.”

The RealD LP is an externally mounted peripheral for a single 3D-enabled DLP® projector, with electronic controls conveniently integrated inside the device. When 3D content is fed to the projector in full-resolution, frame-sequential format, the RealD LP allows content to be seen in 3D by polarizing right- and left-eye images. Viewers wear comfortable, affordable and reusable RealD eyewear custom built for the LP.

Suitable for screens up to 17 feet wide, the RealD LP works with 3D-enabled projectors such as NEC NC800, Christie Mirage HD, and Lightspeed Design HD DepthQ, along with a silver screen from Harkness, MDI or Stewart.

The RealD LP is available for lease through the company’s Professional division.
