Dynamic Digital Depth to help create 3-D LCD and plasma displays

JANUARY 10--DDD Group plc (Las Vegas, NV; www.ddd.com) has been selected by ViewSonic Corporation to be a technology and market development partner in developing a range of 3-D display products based upon ViewSonic's LCD and plasma-display technologies. The ViewSonic 3-D 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 3-D television architecture that allows popular applications to be simply and quickly enabled for use with the 3-D 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 3-D.

The displays will combine a very bright image with wide 3-D viewing angles--making them ideally suited for public display as well as business applications. StereoGraphics' displays create maximum impact Stereo3D images and video with incredible depth and clarity without the need for special glasses.

Prototypes of an 18-in. 3-D LCD display and a 42-in. 3-D plasma display showing 3-D 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 to 12, 2003.
