XpanD X101 active 3D glasses

With infrared emitter & distribution amp


XPAND’s Cinema 3D Glasses (Model No. X101) are the most popular Active Shutter Glasses in the world, being used in more than 3.500 cinemas around the Globe. They prevent “IR black holes” in the theater by utilizing an optimal diode layout – making sure 100% of the viewers will have optimal 3D experience, regardless of their seat position.

The components are built to work in extreme conditions, further endorsing XPAND’s long-standing achievement of having the highest 3D reliability. With a high number of 3D movies and visual content being released and created, programming flexibility is critical to the Exhibitor’s success. Moving the systems from a large auditorium to a smaller auditorium and vice versa is a daily practice that optimizes profits.

To continue its commitment in reducing initial setup time, reduce theater staffing interaction, and long-term maintenance, XPAND X101 Series has been designed with unique features to meet those requirements.


Longer Lamp
Life Due to X101 Series increased light efficiency, DC projectors can be set to their normal lamp settings as opposed to increased lamp output settings which is required by competing 3D systems. This increases lamp life by at least 80%.
No Silver Screen
Standard white screens can be used for both 2D and 3D, thus eliminating unwanted "hot spots" created by 2D presentations on silver screens. With its focused light reflection back to the audience, a silver screen offers a narrower viewing angle as opposed to the lower gain matte screen which provides a much wider viewing angle, while offering the exact same 3D experience to EVERY seat in the auditorium.
Replaceable Batteries
Each battery averages 250 hours of battery life. The batteries can be easily replaced by anyone with a special XPAND provided key.
XPAND X101 Series active glasses are rugged and flexible. The glasses were designed with flex points, which extend the lifetime of the glasses. In rigorous, independent laboratory testing, the X101 glasses worked over 2000 shows, providing unbeatable costs per show.
Automatic "ON/OFF"
To ensure operation of the glasses at show time, to reduce theater operational interface and to better manage battery life, the X101 Series glasses turn "ON" and "OFF" automatically.
The Brightest 3D Solution
3D requires as much light as possible. XPAND X101 Series features the fastest shutter technology for the brightest image. The XPAND Cinema light efficiency using X101 Series glasses at 144hz has been increased to over 17%.
Radio Communication
To further eliminate potential cross talk, XPAND X101 Series is designed to enable Radio communication between the glasses and emitters in future models. 100% DLP XPAND X101 Series is optimized to work with both 0.98 inch and 1.2 inch DLP Cinema chips.
Environmentally Conscious
The X101 Series glasses can be used longer than ever and the X101 Series emitters are using environmental friendly diodes. This is a key element of XPAND's continued commitment to "green technologies" and "earth friendly" solutions.
Secured Communication
For better communication and to eliminate "cross-talk" and "ghosting", XPAND's X101 Series glasses operate with a secured IR signal.
