SENSIO Granted Patent in India

Covers essential 3DTV technology, enabling viewing of 3D content in 2D

MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Oct. 25, 2010) – SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX VENTURE:SIO) today announced that the Indian Patent Office has granted patent no. 242873 covering the SENSIO® S2D Switch. SENSIO already holds a patent covering this product in the United States.

The SENSIO® S2D Switch enables consumers to view 3D material in 2D, extending their accessibility to content and ensuring they get the most out of their investment in their 3D-enabled TV. For example, a movie purchased in 3D, via video-on-demand (VOD) and recorded on a DVR, can be viewed in 2D with the entire extended family on Thanksgiving evening, regardless of the number of pairs of 3D glasses owned. Later it can be viewed in its fully immersive 3D version.

“This patent grant adds a vast and fast-growing market for the SENSIO® S2D Switch,” said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO. “The ability to view 3D in 2D is essential technology for TV manufacturers, and we anticipate that demand for our patent licence will be positively impacted.”

It is also the second step towards SENSIO’s goal of worldwide patent presence. The company has patents pending with the European Patent Office and in Japan and China.
