Does anyone know if the supplier of the 3D glasses is public? XpanD

The Orlando area Buffalo Wild Wings franchisee plans to provide 3-D viewing for sporting events beginning June 11.

Longwood-based Sunshine Restaurant Corp. signed an agreement in late May with El Segundo, Calif.-based Be Media for an undisclosed price that will allow Sunshine Restaurant’s five existing eateries and two being built to show 3-D viewing on several of the restaurants’ flat-screen monitors and projector screens. The restaurants will be using the XpanD 3-D glasses technology, which in the past had the glasses only for use in movie theaters and now has expanded that to television, said a news release.

ESPN, which is owned by Disney (NYSE: DIS), is set to unveil its 3-D technology for the FIFA World Cup June 11. The technology, like several that ESPN now employs, was developed at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

The local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants is expected to be one of the first nationwide to offer live 3-D sporting events and will provide it free to customers, the release said.

Sunshine Restaurant owns existing Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants in Casselberry, Waterford Lakes, Kissimmee, southwest Orlando and Lake Buena Vista, and has locations in Clermont and Osceola County slated to open this summer.
