Japan is known for having a rigorous approval process for patents, and we’re thrilled that it has become the latest country to recognize the incredible value that brilliant alerts offer.
Aukland, New Zealand (PRWEB) April 6, 2010
PureDepth, Inc., the creator of Multi-Layer Display (MLD) technology and a leader in new visualization experiences, today announced the allowance of an important patent application in Japan that further builds out the company’s robust intellectual property portfolio. The patent, filed on November 9, 2002, covers PureDepth’s method of providing MLD users with “brilliant alerts,” in which information from one focal plane is abruptly moved to a different focal plane to quickly grab the viewer’s attention when an alarm or critical situation arises.
PureDepth’s MLD displays contain two or more layers of display panels placed in front of one another in a single monitor. The process of quickly moving information from one LCD layer to another and back again triggers the viewer’s instinctual fight or flight response and improves reaction times, as compared with viewers of a single-layer display equivalent. This could have significant application within the public information display and automobile industries, for example, particularly when coupled with the ability to use Multi-Layer Displays to show normal and 3D content.
This is the third patent allowance or grant from PureDepth’s extensive family of patents that are currently proceeding through the Japan Patent Office. The patent number will be granted on April 8, 2010.
PureDepth has established itself as an innovator in the 3-D and visualization space. Since its inception, the company has maintained a strong intellectual property strategy, developing an extensive portfolio of patented technologies, including its trademark MLD technology.
“Japan is known for having a rigorous approval process for patents, and we’re thrilled that it has become the latest country to recognize the incredible value that brilliant alerts offer,” said PureDepth CEO Andy Wood. “The sense of real depth and vibrant color and contrast that our technology provides offers not only an incredible viewing experience, but also the ability for people to discern new information faster. This patent also offers further international recognition of MLD and PureDepth’s leadership in the dynamic display space.”
PureDepth’s MLD technology offers 3-D-like imagery without the need for special glasses. By providing real depth, instead of a simulation, PureDepth’s technology delivers the most lifelike and most useful visual experience ever available, without negative side effects like headaches and dizziness. Ideal for applications in gaming, automotive, mobile devices and more, PureDepth’s patented technologies provide brilliant alerts, high-contrast viewing, intense colors and real depth, revolutionizing the way people view data, images, video and other content. 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.
