Zecotek Broadens Market and Files Additional Patents for Its Real-Time 3D2D Display System

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2010) - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZMS)(FRANKFURT:W1I), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets today announced that it has filed for patent protection for its Real-Time 3D2D Display system in India, where Zecotek has identified significant opportunities. This follows applications submitted in the US, to the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), and to other regional and national jurisdictions. Patents have been granted in Australia and are pending in the United States, Japan, China, Russia, Korea and major countries in Europe. Protection of intellectual property is crucial as Zecotek is currently demonstrating its 3D display system in Europe, Asia and North America and looks to conclude a manufacturing or licensing partnership with a major OEM.

"Our 3D prototype meets and exceeds the performance specifications required for immediate applications in medical imaging, security, geo-survey, advertising and entertainment as we look to secure a manufacturing agreement in the near future," said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. "In order to maintain our leadership position in this competitive technology space, the strengthening of the patent protection of our unique 3D technological innovation is a priority, and it is being achieved through additional innovative claims and multiple stage patents in all countries where significant demand for our 3D products is expected."

Zecotek's Real-Time 3D2D Display System is based on the auto-stereoscopic principle, but with substantial innovative and patented improvements and represents a new and unique generation of 3D displays. While auto-stereoscopic 3D is true 3D, stereoscopic 3D requires the viewer to wear special glasses. Zecotek's true, multi-view 3D2D Display system requires no glasses and has an effective viewing angle of 40 degrees with 90 concurrent perspectives. The system is also scalable and offers both small 3D display screens for use in the transportation, personal computing and gaming industries, and large 3D display screens designed to meet the expected demand for industrial, advertisement, medical and home entertainment markets.
