MLD offers new visualization experiences that use brilliant alerts, high-contrast viewing, intense colors and real depth, to revolutionize the way people view content. It can make gaming more fun, video more exciting and work more productive.
Redwood Shores, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
PureDepth™ Inc. (OTC:PDEP), the creator of Multi-Layer Display (MLD™) technology and a leader in new visualization experiences, today announced that it has received a U.S. patent allowance for a process that removes distortion and interference when images are viewed between multiple display planes. This process is a key part of the company’s MLD technology, which displays images and data across two or more screens in a single monitor, creating real depth and providing a more lifelike visualization experience than ever before.
PureDepth was also granted a patent in France, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK for a method of augmenting data on one display plane with secondary information placed on another plane. When coupled with the depth perception MLD technology provides, this method of displaying information allows for improved assimilation and retention of content, as well as increased reading speed and comprehension. This patent was previously granted to PureDepth in Korea in 2008.
PureDepth has had a total of 78 patents granted or allowed worldwide, and has an additional 58 patents pending in the United States, Europe, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and smaller markets. The latest U.S. patent was supported by a grant from the Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development, which is a part of the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
“MLD technology is truly unique in its capabilities and applications, and our continually-growing portfolio of patents demonstrates the value it can provide,” said PureDepth CEO Andy Wood. “MLD offers new visualization experiences that use brilliant alerts, high-contrast viewing, intense colors and real depth, to revolutionize the way people view content. It can make gaming more fun, video more exciting and work more productive.”
PureDepth’s latest patents demonstrate an ongoing rapid expansion of its product and licensing developments. The company’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. The company’s technology can be used to enhance an array of advanced electronic displays, including mobile devices, casino games, amusement games, public information displays and more.
MLD technology makes displays smarter by allowing them to seamlessly shift between showing multi-layered depth effects, traditional stereoscopic 3-D and standard two-dimensional video depending on the needs of the content creator and the viewer. PureDepth continues to expand its offerings by licensing and supporting its MLD technology with partners, including OEMs and developers, to bring cutting-edge visual display products to market.
