LIGHTSPEED DESIGN, INC. RECEIVES KEY U.S. PATENT FOR 3D SINGLE-CHIP PROJECTOR COLOR SEQUENCING


BELLEVUE, WA – January 10, 2012: Lightspeed Design, Inc. / DepthQ® is pleased to announce its receipt of U.S Patent No. 8,066,377 for inventing a color sequencing control method that allows 3D single-chip projectors to effectively produce high-performance displays with eye switching devices (LCD active glasses and polarization modulators) by resolving color artifacts and efficiently covering crosstalk (ghosting).

This new invention not only solved image quality problems, it accomplished that while utilizing the standard, off-the-shelf hardware configuration of single-chip 2D projectors. This allowed single-chip 2D projectors to operate either in 2D or in stereoscopic 3D, thereby creating a practical, cost effective 3D product. The application of this invention paved the way for the now industry-wide standard of “3D Ready”.

The novel control method designates a particular segment (or partial segments) of the existing color wheel as “non-critical” to the projection and uses this virtual opaque element to create dark time by discontinuing light output with control firmware. Creating strategically-placed dark time with this new method allows the eye switching device to completely change its state from one eye to the other between projected image frames (in the dark) effectively mitigating the color artifact and crosstalk issues. In a sample DepthQ® sequence, the designated non-critical color is the White segment of the color wheel. A custom designed control sequence is engaged which reorders the colors when necessary and discontinues the light output during some or all of the White segment's allotted display duration.

In 2005, Lightspeed’s pioneering development efforts delivered the world’s first portable 120Hz stereoscopic 3D, single-chip projector to the public. This first-to-market model was 800x600 resolution - while the second and current models, the DepthQ® WXGA and DepthQ® HDs3D-1, increased the resolution to 1280x720. DepthQ® projectors synchronize up to 120 fps input for true 60 fps per eye, creating very high-quality 3D at modest prices, removing the economic barrier to broad use of 3D projection.

Chris Ward, Lightspeed’s President, said “Listening to our clients, we recognized the need for a high-quality, affordable, single-lens 3D projection solution. We were fortunate for the support of forward thinking management at InFocus® Corporation and Texas Instruments. Our invention made possible the broad distribution of the first portable 3D Ready projectors and we are pleased with their substantial market acceptance.”

Lightspeed's invention, persistence, and vision for DepthQ® projection have made high-quality stereoscopic visualization affordable and practical. DepthQ® projection is widely used in applications as diverse as home theater, gaming, eCinema, scientific visualization, industrial design and education where 3D whiteboard applications are becoming the "chalkboard" of our age.

LIGHTSPEED DESIGN, INC. / DEPTHQ TO FEATURE NEWLY PATENTED PASSIVE POLARIZATION FOR 3D DIGITAL CINEMA AT SHOWEAST IN MIAMI - BOOTH 818



BELLEVUE, WA – October 24, 2011: Lightspeed Design, Inc. / DepthQ® will be featuring the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for 3D Digital Cinema at ShowEast, Booth 818, in Miami, October 25-27. The modulator utilizes a newly patented technology developed by Lightspeed’s partner LC-Tec Displays AB which holds the US Patent No. 8023052. Lightspeed is the exclusive, worldwide distributor of all DepthQ® products.

When combined with a silver screen, the DepthQ® Polarization Modulator allows your digital cinema projector to display stunning, Hollywood quality, stereoscopic 3D films, viewable using inexpensive passive circular polarized glasses. To date, it has been successfully reviewed by executives from six major Hollywood studios and is listed on the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Approved Equipment List. Units are currently deployed in the United States in Washington, Alaska, Michigan and California as well as internationally in India, Dubai, Germany, Israel, Australia, UK, Turkey, Latin America, China and the Philippines. Interest in the product continues to grow as orders flow in from around the world.

DepthQ® meets Hollywood’s demanding image quality standards by precisely and efficiently varying the polarity of light passing through it in perfect synch with the “triple-flash” of left and right eye images. An unprecedented symmetrical 50 microsecond switching time between the eyes ensures bright, low-crosstalk operation and makes DepthQ® the world’s fastest polarization switch for digital cinema. DepthQ® is 7 times faster than other digital cinema technologies that boast a 350 microsecond switch.

Chris Ward, President of Lightspeed Design, Inc., said, “Most 3D digital projectors “triple flash” left and right eye images at 144Hz. DepthQ® can deliver 400Hz and maintain the same image quality. Directors like James Cameron and Peter Jackson are now making films that will need to be projected at 192Hz or higher. Projector manufacturers are challenged to keep up with the growing demands of these cinema visionaries. Our modulator can easily provide for this higher frame rate with more than 50% headroom left un-tapped. DepthQ®, as it is now, will be able to accommodate filmmakers’ dreams, satisfy movie-goers ever growing expectations and support advances in projector technology far into the future.”

LIGHTSPEED DESIGN / DEPTHQ TRANSFORMS SHOWTIME ANIMATED LOGO FROM 2D TO 3D



Freeview the above stereo pair crosseyed
.

Showtime tapped Lightspeed Design, Inc. to transform their animated logo from 2D to 3D for a post Superbowl DirectTV event. The project schedule was a little less than 2 weeks making this a truly remarkable feat. The original 2D After Effects CS4 primary composition for the 7 second animation used 245 layers, 6 pre-compositions and 59 pre-rendered elements, each of which received Lightspeed's individually-tailored 2D to 3D conversion techniques. Lightspeed's primary 2D to 3D After Effects CS5 composition utilized 478 layers, 103 pre-compositions, and 32 pre-rendered elements to create the final stereoscopic 3D composite.

Even a blizzard in New York near the end of the project, causing over 2000 flights to be canceled including Lightspeed's expedited UPS shipment, did not prevent their on-time, on-budget delivery of the product. Showtime was so pleased with the spectacular 3D, they asked Lightspeed to lengthen the logo sequence to 14 seconds and add a custom 5.1 surround sound mix.

The DepthQ® HDs3D-1 high-definition 3D projector is the 3rd generation of Lightspeed Design's patent-pending portable stereoscopic projectors, offering superior contrast and synchronization for 3D professionals. These projectors leverage nearly two decades of professional 3D knowledge and expertise to deliver the highest-quality, most satisfying and hassle-free 3D experience possible.

New to the HDs3D-1 is higher brightness (2700 lumens in 3D mode), an all-digital HDMI input path for unsurpassed clarity and a specialized 3D image sequence optimized for brighter polarized projection. Additionally, these professional-level 3D projectors can easily display 10 ft (3 m) wide high-definition images using the latest Texas Instruments DLP® and BrilliantColorTM technologies - for wall-filling imagery with stunning colors and a 2100:1 contrast ratio, at a truly unprecedented level of price-performance.

The DepthQ® Polarization Modulator electronically switches the polarization orientation of light passing through it. In combination with a polarization-preserving screen and the DepthQ® HDs3D-1 projector, the modulator enables high-brightness, low-ghost viewing using lightweight & comfortable passive 3D eyewear.

The modulator utilizes a unique combination of separate liquid crystal elements bonded together, enabling both high polarization efficiency over visible wavelengths from 400 to 750 nm (predominantly achromatic spectral response) as well as fast transition switching speeds (0.6ms at room temperature) between polarization states at a frequency of 120Hz. Efficient, high-speed switching between the eyes ensures bright, low-crosstalk, flicker-free operation.

To order now and take advantage of this special bundle pricing, contact Lightspeed at http://www.depthq.com/contact.html, sales@lightspeeddesign.com or call our sales department at +1-206-784-1385. Linear polarization available upon request.

The DepthQ® Polarization Modulator is also available in a large size for projectors with apertures up to 7.12 inches (180.85mm) and lamp outputs up to 35,000 lumens for use in large venues including Digital Cinema.
