The Pi Series features additional flex points for an extended lifespan


The Pi Series Glasses

XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses continue the tradition of ultimate 3D performance found in XPAND’s legendary XPAND original Cinema 3D Glasses Model X101, but with lighter weight, improved ergonomic design for long-lasting comfort and non-foldable, replaceable arms. They use the standard CR2032 battery and battery life is extended to 250 hours minimum.
XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses give your customers an optimal 3D experience, no matter where they sit in the theatre - with Extended IR Range supporting the largest cinemas in the world.
XPAND Pi Cinema 3D Glasses are HFR Ready!


XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses are rugged and flexible. The glasses were designed with flex points, which extend the lifetime of the glasses.

Optimal 3D Experience

XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses 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.

Automatic "ON / OFF"

To ensure operation of the glasses at show time, to reduce theater operational interface and to better manage battery life, the XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses turn “ON” and “OFF” automatically.

Longer Lamp Life

Due to XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses’ 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 Screens

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.

Even Faster Installation

With high number of 3D movies being released, 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 π Cinema 3D Glasses has been designed with unique features to meet those requirements.

Highest Reliability in 3D Market

XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses’ components are built to work in extreme conditions, further endorsing XPAND’S long-standing achievement of having the highest 3D reliability.

Secured Communication

For better communication and to eliminate “cross-talk” and “ghosting”, XPAND π Cinema 3D Glasses operate with a secured IR signal.
