Neurok Optics, LLC, a US-based 3D technology developer and marketing company and Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO), a Taiwan-based leading worldwide TFT-LCD manufacturing company, announced they have formed a new joint venture company. The new company, iZ3D, LLC, will be based in San Diego. It will develop and market iZ3D products for the electronic entertainment market as well as for commercial and professional visualization applications.
“To enhance its leadership in the 3D display market, the newly formed iZ3D, LLC combines superior iZ3D technology and marketing capabilities with CMO’s leading manufacturing techniques and worldwide distribution presence,” stated David Chechelashvili, vice president of marketing for Neurok Optics, LLC.
The first iZ3D, LLC product to reach the market will be a 22” W iZ3D, an advanced video monitor capable of displaying impressive into-screen and out-of-screen 3D images with passive polarized glasses. It is designed to replace standard 2D monitors, while maintaining commercial image quality and display brightness.
Its advanced technology takes three-dimensional applications – such as PC games, 3D entertainment, and professional stereo applications – and allows users to experience it in a way they never could with a standard 2D monitor. It creates a shock-and-awe-inspiring 3D depth while minimizing eyestrain, spatial disorientation, headache, or nausea.
The unit is powered by any personal computer with a dual output video card. Smart capabilities allow it to be used for regular 2D office tasks as well as 3D viewing. Specifications include: 1680 x 1050 resolution; up to 120-degree viewing angle; 5 ms response time; and 300 NIT brightness with 800:1 contrast ratio. It has dual interface capability with DVI and DVI/VGA inputs.
A CMO official commented, “This is a very exciting, growth-oriented time in the display industry because the rapid pace of innovation in production technology is matched by equally rapid progress in display technology - this joint venture is ideal because it capitalizes on the strengths of both companies.”
The initial iZ3D, LLC product will begin shipping in May. Planned MSRP is $999.
