3D AV Bundle Focuses on Ed Market
- By Dian Schaffhauser
The 3DAVRover includes a Windows 7 Pro computer with an NVidia 3D graphics processor, a 3D projector, 3D viewing software, speakers, 3D educational content, and 25 sets of 3D glasses.
Two companies with 3D products are working together to serve the education market. AVRover, which bundles the components for portable audio visual systems, will be adding XPAND 3D glasses to its 3D-specific bundle. The 3DAVRover is intended to provide an "immersive educational experience," according to information from the company. It includes a Windows 7 Pro computer with an NVidia 3D graphics processor, a 3D projector, 3D viewing software, speakers, 3D educational content, and 25 sets of 3D glasses from XPAND.
XPAND's EDUX3 3D glasses have "active-shutter" technology, which shifts rapidly between showing the view from the right eye and the view from the left eye to give the impression of depth when viewing two pictures that have been blended together to create the 3D image. The glasses run on CR2032 batteries, which have an average life of about 100 hours, according to the company.
The console into which the bundle fits is 36 inches high, 19 inches wide, and 24 inches deep. It's on heavy-duty wheels and features a steel body, security screws on all panels, local storage drawers to hold the glasses and other components, a 25-foot retractable power cord, and two power outlets.
"The ultimate goal is to increase student achievement and our collaboration on these glasses is only the beginning of what AVRover and XPAND 3D will bring to the education market," said Douglas Smith, president of AVRover.
