XPAND 3D CEO Maria Costeira Named to 3D@Home Panel at CES 2013

Maria Costeira

XPAND 3D announces that chief executive officer Maria Costeira has been named to participate in the 3D@Home panel discussion at CES 2013. With CES 2013 expected to be a hotbed of new technologies, new ideas for the future, and new debates, excitement is already strong for what promises to be a compelling discussion, the company says.

According to Costeira, the timing could not be better, "Our industry is just now seeing the tip of the 3D iceberg and I believe that gaming, film, sports, and education will drive the broad of adoption of 3D in an exciting variety of home applications. If one simply looks at the volume and production scale of native 3D films set for early 2013 and then considers the list of game releases, planned episodic television programming, and large-scale domestic and international sporting events, one quickly realizes that 3D content will hit critical mass in mid-2013. Couple this phenomenon with supplemental growth from re-rendering legacy 2D catalog content for entertainment and education and it's immediately clear how important CES will be to shaping the channel and manufacturing community's outlook for 3D. It's for this reason that I am very happy to participate in this discussion on the future of 3D in the home."

Costeira's deep belief that multidimensional imaging presents the next great advance in entertainment, education, science, and industry has been central to XPAND 3D's strategy since she led the foundation of the company in 2005 and its development ever since.

Costeira serves as an executive officer on the board of directors of X6D LIMITED and also serves as board member or chairperson for several organizations, including the International 3D Society and the American Association of Professional Women. A cinema veteran, having managed AMC Theatres International across numerous territories in continental Europe, Costeira led XPAND 3D's acquisition of NuVision's active stereoscopic technologies. Costeira earned a Business Degree in the UK, specializing in International Economics, and an OAMLP (Oxford Advanced Management and Leadership Program).

XPAND 3D will also be exhibiting at CES 2013 in booth 20231.
