PureDepth's MLD technology allows our designers to come up with a wide array of new ideas and game features that will delight consumers, making the company an ideal partner.
Redwood Shores, CA (PRWEB) August 4, 2009
- PureDepth™, Inc. (OTC:PDEP), the creator of Multi-Layer Display (MLD™) technology and a leader in new visualization experiences, today announced an agreement with gaming developer No 8 Technology (No 8) to create an exciting new MLD-based casino game for future licensing.
The game, provisionally titled "Kings of Cash", will use advanced MLD effects to provide eye-popping visuals that will offer an unparalleled gaming experience. Combining No. 8's design and development skills with PureDepth's patented technology, Kings of Cash represents the companies' first effort as co-developers in the casino gaming marketplace. PureDepth and No 8 aim to have the game in U.S. casinos in 2010.
MLD displays contain two or more layers of LCD panels placed in front of one another in a single monitor, with patented technology used to remove interference. The result is real depth, not perceived depth.
PureDepth's MLD technology is already a proven success in the gaming industry, powering IGT's REELdepth™ games, which are available in 500 properties worldwide. REELdepth games have been recognized with several awards, including being named 2009 Lottery Product of the Year by the Public Gaming Research Institute and one of the Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products for 2008 by Casino Journal.
"We're excited to build on our efforts in the casino space by forming a partnership with No 8," said PureDepth CEO Andy Wood. "It's clear from the success of the REELdepth games that there are extensive opportunities in gaming for companies that can provide new visualization experiences and play options to consumers. We're confident that working with No 8 will allow us to bring many exciting games to market."
"We have been seeking the right partner to bring our latest designs and intellectual property to the casino market," said Anthony Wallis, Managing Director of No 8 Technology. "PureDepth's MLD technology allows our designers to come up with a wide array of new ideas and game features that will delight consumers, making the company an ideal partner."
PureDepth's MLD technology offers several benefits over conventional visual displays or conventional 3-D technology:
- Improves standard 2-D content with enhanced color and contrast
- Introduces a new depth effect to content by utilizing the space between two LCD screens
- Enables 3-D viewing with traditional stereoscopic effects, without negative side effects such as headaches or eye fatgiue
- Offers a combination of 2-D, 3-D and MLD depth effects within one seamless application
Since its inception, PureDepth has established itself as an innovator in the 3-D and visualization space, and the company continues to expand its leading technology offerings by licensing and supporting its technology with partners, including OEMs and developers, to bring cutting-edge visual display products to market.
