ISee3D Announces Completion of High Definition Single Lens, Single 3D Camera Prototype

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2009) - Isee3D Inc. ("Isee3D") (TSX VENTURE:ICT) is pleased to announce that its research and development collaborator, Battelle, has successfully assembled the components for the first high definition (HD) single lens, single 3D camera prototype and verified the camera's capability of capturing 3D video and still images. ISee3D will visit Battelle in the coming week for an on-site demonstration and to take possession of the first of two 3D camera prototypes.

"The initial images and video we have viewed from the single lens 3D camera prototype have exceeded our expectations," commented Dwight Romanica CEO and President of Isee3D. "Shortly we will be in possession of something truly innovative - the first operational, single lens, single camera 3D system capable of capturing large format, HD, digital video and still images. The combination of this prototype and its accompanying engineering specifications should allow us to formalize several partnering arrangements, validating the commercial interest in single lens 3D capture technology."

"It is very rewarding to see our technology move beyond its original surgical systems application and achieve this proof of concept milestone in consumer electronics," commented Tom Mitchell, ISee3D's Chief Technology Officer. "We look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with Battelle, as we refine the technology and work with our licensing partners on their specific needs and engineering specifications."

The single lens prototypes, developed with engineering assistance from Battelle, represent a significant advancement in 3D HD capture technology providing the consumer with ease of use identical to 2D lenses. ISee3D's single 3D lens is capable of capturing large format, high-definition images with the ease of use and accurately matched left, and right images, over the full lens range of zoom, and focus but, more importantly, by employing the new solid state optical switch, the lens should meet with the size and cost requirements for broad adoption by consumer electronic manufacturers.
