XPAND 3D is a brand name for visualisation solutions integration. Company behind the brand is X6D Limited and has in the past few years evolved from being an active-shutter 3D glasses company into a diversified company.

XPAND 3D Cinema

The XPAND cinema 3D systems can be both active or passive 3D system.

In passive 3D system, silver screen is used and polarized filters on both projector and 3D glasses send either left or right image to appropriate eye and thus creating stereoscopic image in viewer's brains.

Home use

XPAND 3D glasses are one of several brands of 3D shutter glasses that can be used in both in theaters and at home, in both Digital cinema and 3DTV respectively. Other brands that can be used for both include Panastereo.

Other applications of XPAND technology

Other than its cinema and consumer electronic divisions, the 3D technologies developed by XPAND are used in education and professional environments. XPAND 3D also designs, manufactures, OEMs a range of consumer electronics 3D solutions and also licenses 3D technology to third parties. XPAND 3D has released Amblyz, an electronic device in the shape of glasses to replace eye-patching with children.

Standardization of 3D protocols

In August 2011 Panasonic, Samsung and Sony along with X6D Limited (XPAND's parent company) announced an agreement called the "Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative" to develop a standard for 3D glasses on consumer products including televisions, computers and projectors, based on XPAND's technology. Previously the companies had their own standards for 3D glasses and they were incompatible with each other. The press release in the announcement said, "Universal glasses with the new IR/RF protocols will be made available in 2012, and are targeted to be backward compatible with 2011 3D active TVs."[1]
