For the first time, a regular paying audience will be able to watch a 3D stereoscopic movie "as god intended it to be", i.e. with a 14 foot-lamberts brightness instead of the more usual 3 to 4 f-l...

The Necsel Light Engine

Using red, green and blue lasers instead of a single lamp and then split this light into red, green and blue light, the new system has a far better efficiency.
