Wavien, Inc. today announces that it will demonstrate the next level of improved performance 3D projectors using its patented DPR technology at CES in Las Vegas with a 3D front projector. The DPR reflector system provides viewers with a greatly enhanced 3D experience by delivering dramatically increased brightness with additional benefit of extending the lamp life of older traditional platforms by up to 3 times. Wavien has demonstrated the improvements of 3D experience using DPR on RPTV systems at technology trade shows in the past.
"High performance arc lamps really get a boost from DPR with substantial brightness and lifetime increases," stated Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc. "The increase in brightness overcomes the losses introduced in 3D glasses. Industrial experts recognize increased brightness enhances the viewer's 3D experience. During our demonstrations of high brightness 3D contents at Dynamic Digital Depth, Inc. last year, Douglas Hunter, VP Licensing stated that, 'The brighter lamp in the Wavien [DPR] modified 3D DLP TV does enhance the 3D effect when compared to a standard lamp in a DLP 3D TV.' The same enhanced effect will also be seen in the 3D front projectors using the DPR technology."
Today's press release follows the announcement in June 2009 of a Wavien-Texas Instruments DLP(R) Products collaboration to co-promote the DPR technology for the educational front projector market.
