MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 3, 2014) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:SIO)(OTC:SNIOF), announced today that the US Patent Office has issued patent US 8743177 relating to the use of complementary pixels in merged frame formats. This American patent is the third one to be granted to SENSIO for this inventive technology, following another American patent issued in November 2010, as well as a European patent issued in November 2013. Patent applications related to this technology are also pending in China and Japan.
A first patent relating to the use of complementary pixels in merged frame formats had already been issued in the United States in November 2010, under an accelerated issuance process, for the purpose of obtaining immediate coverage for this technology. The new patent granted today complements the first one by broadening the scope of application and specifying practical applications for decoding-capable devices such as TV sets, Blu-ray players and set-top boxes.
"This new patent is a welcome addition to our portfolio, as it reinforces the previous patent we obtained for that technology" said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO of SENSIO. "As this patent covers practical applications in various systems, our SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D format now benefits from a stronger protection, which grants us renewed confidence moving forward with our commercial activities."
