SENSIO® Autodetect enables effortless consumption of 3D content, regardless of input format

New SENSIO feature introduced at CES 2011 solves problem of content recognition and adds value to consumer electronics devices

LAS VEGAS, CES 2011 — Jan. 3, 2011 — Today at CES 2011, SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX.V: SIO) introduced SENSIO® Autodetect, a feature that dramatically enhances the usability of devices for viewing 3D video by automatically detecting the input format, whether 2D, side-by-side, SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D or Top-and-Bottom, and displaying images in the corresponding output format. Designed for integration into AVRs (audio/video receivers), STBs (set-top boxes), 3DTVs, and BD (Blu-ray players), as well as professional video-processing equipment, this SENSIO technology improves the overall user experience in viewing 3D content, but also the appeal of the equipment incorporating it.

“Ensuring that 3D content is viewed optimally, SENSIO® Autodetect brings essential functionality to the next generation of 3D-capable audiovisual equipment,” said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO President and CEO. “With SENSIO® Autodetect incorporated into 3D display systems, neither 3D content providers nor consumers will face issues associated with configuration of input and output formats. This feature is yet another SENSIO solution that enhances the user experience while contributing to the success of our technology partners.”

Devices not equipped with SENSIO® Autodetect require that the consumer know which input format has been used for a given 3D movie, broadcast, PPV, or VOD purchase. With that information in hand, users must navigate through on-screen menus and select the appropriate output format before they can view 3D content. SENSIO® Autodetect eliminates this confusion, enabling consumers to view 3D content without fuss and without effort.

SENSIO® Autodetect is one of a range of SENSIO products developed to enable the best possible 3D end-user experience, and one of the new SENSIO products being officially launched at CES 2011.
