Excelsus Solutions Comments On HumanEyes' New LensFree Technology for Lenticular & 3D
Press release from the issuing company
Jerusalem and New York – (April 11, 2007) – Excelsus Solutions of Rochester, New York, which specializes in lenticular and large format digital printing of signage, packaging, displays, and specialty projects; is raving about HumanEyes’ new LensFree technology. The LensFree feature in HumanEyes’ software permits 3D effects and 2D animation to be printed directly on glass and acrylic.
“LensFree dramatically alters the lenticular landscape by letting anyone print with ordinary, available materials,” says Excelsus President Mark Laniak.
Cost of Lenticular Now Greatly Reduced
Laniak says that a large share of the print buying market would like to utilize lenticular, but many have been unable to justify the price because of the cost of lenses. However, as LensFree eliminates the need for lenses entirely, the opportunity to do lenticular, Laniak says, is now available to a much higher percentage of the print buying community.
Spectacular Backlit Applications for Outdoor & More
LensFree’s sharp, eye-catching animation effects are suited perfectly for backlit applications such as those featured in airports, subway and rail advertisements, in-store and mall decorations, interior design, and more. The 3D and animation effects are sharp, eye catching, accurate, and may be viewed from a long distance.
HumanEyes’ LensFree technology has already taken Excelsus’ printing on acrylic to new heights, wowing its customers. “Our customers are already going nuts over it,” says Laniak, who says Excelsus has built a special, 4-foot x 8-foot lightbox on wheels to display the company’s lenticular capabilities.
“No other visual medium captures this much attention, especially when we print on acrylic with HumanEyes. The depth is incredible; it’s like a diamond,” Laniak says.
The LensFree Profit Opportunity for Printers
Because it allows for new backlit applications that eliminate the need for lenticular lenses, the LensFree feature opens new, cost-effective opportunities for printers using UV flatbed presses . Instead of printing on dedicated lenticular sheets, 3D effects as well as 2D animation can be printed on standard glass or acrylic (plexiglas), using a simple dialogue box now added to HumanEyes PrintPro software.
