(SENSIO) (TSX VENTURE:SIO) today announced that its Board of Directors has granted to each of the co-founders of the company 250,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.70 per share, being the closing price of the common shares of the Corporation as of May 31st, 2011 including a markup.

"When we founded SENSIO 12 years ago, the 3D industry was still just a concept," said the two executives in a joint statement. "Much has been accomplished since: We've built a network for the broadcast of live 3D events in cinemas and have been instrumental in major events like the BCS Bowl, the NBA All-Star games and the 2010 FIFA World Cup to name but a few. On the consumer electronics front, we became the first proprietary format to be embedded in 3DTVs, those of the #1 LCD TV seller in the USA, and SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology is now widely available through major chip vendors worldwide. As 3D in the CE industry is only in its infancy, there is still much work to do to and the company continues to focus on our vision of the widespread adoption of 3D. As founders, managers and shareholders of SENSIO, we remain committed to building the company and exceeding shareholders' expectations, and conserving our personal holdings in the company embodies this commitment."
