DepthQ® is a respected stereoscopic technology brand trusted by the most discerning clientele, and assisting in a wide range of disciplines - from 3D digital cinema...to screening rooms...to pharmaceutical visualization...to surgical support systems...to 3D film production.
DepthQ® Polarization Modulator for Digital CinemaAllows digital cinema projectors to display stunning stereoscopic 3D films, viewable using inexpensive passive glasses. Also available for use with any 3D-ready DLP Projectors for advanced 3D visualization.
Surgical Display SystemsLightspeed provides design and installation of custom 3D visualization systems for integration with Intuitive Surgical, Inc.’s - da Vinci® Surgical Systems. We also offer a standardized product for patient-side assistance - the DepthQ® MobileTM 3D Visualization Cart. DepthQ® MobileTM integrates high-quality stereoscopic display with our DepthQ® CaptureTM and DepthQ® PlayerTM software in a compact, height-adjustable and mobile package.
Surgical Systems Support ServicesLightspeed Design, Inc. provides both 3D systems integration for permanent installations as well as 3D support services for surgical clients requiring 3D visualization at lectures, trade-shows and conferences.
DepthQ® HDs3D-1 Video ProjectorAn affordable, portable, high-definition 3D projector that delivers rock-solid 120 Hz stereo 3D.
Stereoscopic SoftwareDepthQ®PlayerTM is our feature-packed software solution for the processing and playback of stereo 3D movies from a standard off-the-shelf PC at HD resolution (1920x1080) and beyond. DepthQ® CaptureTM captures, processes and digitizes streaming full-motion stereoscopic video from two sources simultaneously. The captured 3D video can be monitored in realtime with extremely low latency, or recorded to the hard disk in an AVI format for playback. In development: DepthQ® Broadcast ServerTM encodes and broadcasts live 3D video over IP.
Custom 3D InstallationsLightspeed Design has been engineering and installing custom 3D Cinemas, Theaters and Industrial Visualization Centers since 1997, with dozens to our credit. While technology has surged forward since that first installation, Lightspeed has kept pace by constantly testing new innovations and actively developing 3D projection and software technologies. Our extensive knowledge creating immersive 3D theaters, paired with hands-on involvement in developing the industry, means reliable performance and satisfied audiences.
