MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 23, 2009) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO") (TSX VENTURE:SIO), inventor of the SENSIO® 3D technology, announced that its pending patent application has just been allowed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the "USPTO"). SENSIO should soon receive its American patent number, covering the heart of the SENSIO® 3D technology. This acceptance is the result of SENSIO's request for continued examination to enable official evaluation by the USPTO of prior art documents.

"We are very pleased that the USPTO has come to the same conclusion as SENSIO's management, and that it has deemed the prior art documents presented to be not pertinent. The American patent office has once again confirmed the legitimacy and the solidity of our intellectual property," states Nicholas Routhier, President and Chief Executive Officer of SENSIO.

The patent application filed by SENSIO covers its technology for distribution and formatting of stereoscopic content for various 2D and 3D screens. Basically, it covers the method developed and marketed by SENSIO over several years, which enables distribution of 3D content over conventional 2D distribution channels.
