Lightspeed Design Showcases Unprecedented Speed, Clarity of DepthQ 3D at ShowEast and CineAsia 2012 Over 700 cinemas worldwide adopt DepthQ 3D to meet the newest challenges of high frame rate 3D movies

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DepthQ® 3D, Lightspeed Design's passive polarization for 3D digital cinema, can now be experienced on over 700 screens worldwide. DepthQ® 3D will also be showcased at ShowEast 2012 in Miami (Booth 1118) and CineAsia 2012 in Hong Kong (Booth 316). With patented technology (U.S. Patent No. 8023052 B1), DepthQ® 3D is not only the world's fastest polarization switch, it also creates the brightest, clearest, most immersive 3D experience possible. DepthQ® 3D easily meets the demanding image quality standards of major Hollywood studios, and because of its unprecedented speed, is ready to show the next generation of high frame rate (HFR) 3D movies by James Cameron and Peter Jackson.

Chris Ward, President Lightspeed Design, Inc.:  "Through our constant focus on research and development our team has achieved a total system efficiency of 15% per eye, which accounts for the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator's static light efficiency of 41%, the projector's multiplex, a projector dark time of 350 microsecond, 3D color correction loss, port glass loss, and 3D glasses loss.  Clients can now use 2.4 gain screens up to 18M (60 feet) in width with high frame rate (HFR) films, and attain 6 ft-Lamberts with a new lamp, while maintaining useful fL's longer than our polarized competitors.  Our competition falls short, with full system efficiency in the 13-14% range, based on published data.  The DepthQ modulator's advanced optical design future-proofs your investment with best-in-class speed (50 microsecond), while protecting a bright crisp image for years to come."

DepthQ® 3D is currently distributed by 34 domestic and international dealers new dealers joining nearly every month.  DepthQ® 3D has been welcomed to cinemas in Washington, Oregon, and California in the US as well as India, Dubai, Germany, Switzerland, Thailand, Poland, Russia, Israel, Korea, Australia, UK, Turkey, China, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Singapore, Viet Nam and the Philippines.
