SENSIO and Miranda Announce Partnership to Develop Suite of Broadcast Products for 3DTV

SENSIO's 3D technology strengthens Miranda's Densite 3DX-3901 Stereoscopic 3D video processor

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SIO) and Miranda Technologies Inc. ("Miranda") (TSX:MT) today announced a partnership to develop a suite of high-performance broadcast products to enable end-to-end, stereoscopic 3D playout.

The first Miranda product equipped with SENSIO® 3D technology is the Densite 3DX-3901 Stereoscopic 3D video processor module, which is to be launched at the 2010 National Assosciation of Broadcasters Show ("NAB") in Las Vegas. The processor provides high quality conversion of multiple 3D formats, including SENSIO® 3D technology which offers visually lossless, compression-decompression technology for high quality distribution of 3D content over existing 2D infrastructures.

The Densite 3DX-3901 provides conversion of Dual 1.5Gbps, Dual 3Gbps, Single 1.5Gbps, and Single 3Gbps signals. It features a single 3Gbps/HD input and dual 3Gbps/HD outputs; this allows previewing of conversion effects, as well as 3D/2D simulcasting. The processor also offers horizontal and vertical flip, interaxial adjustment, and Horizontal Image Translation for adjustments to depth positioning, and for simulating a 3D landscape from a 2D scene.

"The remarkable momentum of 3D is driving broadcasters' demand for a fully integrated suite of 3D-enabled systems that interoperate smoothly to 'industrialize' 3D playout workflows, and our partnership with Miranda is a key step towards this," says Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO at SENSIO.

"Miranda now offers a range of Stereoscopic 3D products, spanning signal processing, multi-viewers and channel branding, which simplify the transition to 3DTV production and playout", says Jean-Marc d'Anjou, Vice-President Infrastructure at Miranda. "We're aiming to strengthen our support for SENSIO® 3D across our products, with upcoming product releases".

SENSIO and Miranda will showcase their 3D technology at Miranda's booth at the 2010 NAB Show (booth #N2515).
