JULY 26--3DX-RAY Ltd. (www.3dx-ray.com) has been collaborating with Sharp Laboratories of Europe to enable x-ray screening of bags and luggage to move to the next level--3-D images without glasses.

JULY 26--3DX-RAY Ltd. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Image Scan Holdings plc; www.3dx-ray.com) has been collaborating with Sharp Laboratories of Europe to enable x-ray screening of bags and luggage to move to the next level--3-D images without glasses. 3DX-RAY Ltd. developed x-ray systems that first enabled real-time 3-D security screening to be brought to the marketplace earlier this year, while Sharp's innovative new display screens can switch from 2-D to 3-D in an instant and do not require the user to wear special glasses. 3DX-RAY continues to work with Sharp to ensure that this new generation of display technology meets the high imaging requirements of the security-screening sector.

3DX-RAY chief executive Nick Fox comments: "Having worked with Sharp Laboratories over many months, 3DX-RAY Limited is delighted to see an emerging alternative to our established glasses-based 3-D imaging systems. These new advances in display technology will provide our company with increased opportunities to employ our unique 3-D X-ray equipment in security systems, providing the benefits of improved detection, lower false alarm, and reduced training times to a wider audience of end users."
