Designer Makes LG 3D Projector a Fashion Accessory
Marc Bouwer used LG's CF3D projector to create an immersive runway experience.
When it comes to fashion, you can’t forget the accessories. However, when it came to presenting his 2011 fall collection, designer Marc Bouwer just needed one must-have item: LG’s CF3D projector.
On Sunday, the designer made history by presenting his collection via 3D video, during an invitation-only show in New York City. The video featured former Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks.
“Last year we broke with the status quo by only presenting our show online and we felt a 3D show was a great way to keep pushing the envelope this year,” said Bouwer in a statement. “LG’s projector offered the right 3D technology with robust picture quality and a clarity that allowed me to introduce my new line through an unforgettably immersive experience.”
The CF3D uses movie-theater-style 3D glasses to display the technology. However, these weren’t the same cheapie ones that you’d get at your local Cineplex. Marchon3D Eyewear took the opportunity to show off its own fashionable line of polarized 3D glasses.
LG’s CF3D is a full HD dual-engine single-lens 3D projector, which creates two images for maximum brightness. Boasting a contrast ratio of 7,000:1, this LCOS-based system also has a brightness rating of 2,500 ANSI-lumens for 2D and 1,250 ANSI-lumens for 3D. Available now, the CF3D projector sells for about $12,000.
