Company to help create 3D LCD and plasma displays for Visual Technology Leader
LAS VEGAS, January 10, 2003 – DDD Group plc today announced they have been selected by ViewSonic Corporation to be a technology and market development partner that will help develop a range of 3D display products based upon ViewSonic’s LCD and plasma display technologies.
The ViewSonic 3D displays will address a wide range of existing consumer and business applications, from interactive games to business visualization and presentation packages, using DDD’s TriDef™ 3D Television architecture that allows popular applications to be simply and quickly enabled for use with the 3D displays. In addition to computer-animated content, DDD’s TriDef Transformer™ enables existing digital pictures and even feature length Hollywood movies to be converted to 3D.
The ViewSonic 3D displays will combine a very bright image with wide 3D viewing angles – making them ideally suited for public display as well business applications. StereoGraphics’ displays create maximum impact Stereo3D images and video with incredible depth and clarity without the need for special glasses.
“After extensive research, we chose StereoGraphics and Dynamic Digital Depth (DDD) as business partners to help ViewSonic enter this new product category primarily because of their proven technology in 3D displays,” said Marc McConnaughey, senior vice president, Advanced Technology Group, ViewSonic.
Prototypes of an 18-inch 3D LCD display and a 42-inch 3D plasma display showing 3D content including animation, videos and games are being demonstrated by ViewSonic at the Consumer Electronics Show, being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 9-12, 2003.
DDD is transforming television with glasses-free 3D TV. Its patented technologies enable 3D viewing without glasses; supply of 3D content through 2D to 3D conversion; and 3D transmission over existing networks. DDD is quoted on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM:DDD).
