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.

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.”

Dr. Jesper Osterman, Chief Technology Officer of LC-Tec, says: “We are very glad to see our novel polarization modulation technology being implemented and commercialized in the DepthQ® product. The technology has been fine-tuned and optimized in close cooperation with our partner Lightspeed Design, Inc. to meet the highest demands of today’s and tomorrow’s 3D cinema applications. Thanks to our complete in-house manufacturing line in Sweden, we have full control of each and every component through final assembly with ongoing support from our sophisticated R&D laboratories.”

Features include:
  • Bright, low-ghost 3D
  • Crisp, sharp image
  • Heat-tolerant, accepts up to 22K Lumens
  • 3D screen sizes up to ~13.7 m (45 ft)
  • Simple, easy to setup and use
  • No moving parts - low cost/maintenance
  • Works with all DLP projectors
  • Compatible with standard polarized 3D glasses
  • Two position actuator allows easy switch between 2D and 3D
  • Simple, single-cost business model
The system includes the liquid-crystal modulator as well as its control unit, plus hardware which mounts the unit to the front of your projector, and an actuator to move the modulator in and out of the projection path (for switching between 2D and 3D). Sync output from your projector's GPIO port is supplied to the control unit, which then conditions the signal to match the modulator’s required input.
