Zecotek files Two US Patents for 3D Display Technology
Singapore, March 6, 2014 - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS; Frankfurt: W1I.F), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets, today announced that it has filed two important patents with the US Patent Office relating to front and rear-projection autostereoscopic 3D display systems. The first patent application is for a front-projection auto-stereoscopic 3D display system which enables viewers to experience autostereoscopic 3D content through a front-projection system without the need for any special glasses. The second patent application is a rear-projection auto-stereoscopic 3D display system which enables viewers to experience auto-stereoscopic 3D content through a rear-projection system without the need for any special glasses.
“Protecting our intellectual property is of the utmost importance and the two patents filed for our 3D display technology cover key areas for future growth,” said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. “We have introduce two 3D system designs which do not require the need for special glasses. The front-projector 3D system design uses a special reflection screen to allow viewers to experience auto-stereoscopic 3D content. The rear-projection 3D system, similar to our patented 3D display technology (US Patent No. 7,944,465) which uses a vibrating lenticular display, does not require a vibrating lenticular component which makes the system easier to manufacture and scalable to larger sizes. We will continue to vigorously protect all of the Company`s underlying technology through patents.”
On December 16, 2013, Zecotek announced it was demonstrating the patented 3D display technology to major electronics companies in its lab in Vancouver, BC. The Company is in discussions with certain major electronics companies to co-develop an OLED/LED (organic light emitting diode) based, flat screen, glasses-free, true 3D HD television. Zecotek has overcome the main technical barriers required for a flat screen form display with HD picture quality with available OLED/LED flat screen display technologies. Furthermore, there is significant interest in the 3D industry for a replacement for display systems which require glasses or provide limited views.
Zecotek previously received patent allowances from the United States, Europe and Eurasia covering the 3D/2D switchable optical imaging system of Zecotek’s 3D Display. The 3D/2D switchable optical imaging system further improves the core capabilities of the 3D display technology by introducing a software-selectable full-resolution 2D mode with viewing angles and dynamic range/colour depth on par with conventional 2D displays. The patent covers technology for both 3D and 2D modes, dynamic adjustment of viewing angle, number and width of viewing zones as well as the functionality to dynamically control the positioning of different viewing zones.
Patents have now been granted to Zecotek for its 3D display system in the United States, China, Europe, Eurasia, Russia and Australia. Other patents have been filed and are pending in Japan, Korea and India.
