DEAUVILLE, France – Delivering the very best quality and style in 3D cinema in one of the world’s largest and most innovative film markets, an XPAND 3D Infinity system was used at the 67th Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français (National Federation of French Cinemas). Held at the Centre International in Deauville, France, the event brought together exhibitors and film distributors from around the country and featured screenings of several films, including Clément Michel’s La Stratégie de la Poussette, Grégory Magne and Stéphane Viard’s L’Air de Rien and Ben Affleck’s Argo.
The fourth day of the Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français was “Distributor Day,” featuring a lineup of film previews from numerous French distributors. For all 3D content, XPAND provided a 3D cinema system featuring no less than 2,000 of its Infinity active 3D glasses.
“France is celebrated for its progressive and innovative attitude towards film and the Congrès de la Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français is one of the largest events of the year for the French film industry. As such, there can be no compromises when it comes to technology, which is why our Infinity 3D system is ideal for this event,” said Alain Rémond, President of Sales and Business Development, XPAND 3D. “No other 3D cinema system can match the scalability, quality and stylish appearance of Infinity, which is truly the best system to bring filmmakers’ artistic visions to life!”
The XPAND Infinity 3D glasses provide up to 38% transparency and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The glasses’ lightweight ergonomic designs ensure long-wearing comfort, and their wide 3D viewing angle provides an optimal 3D image across the entire cinema.
