Meant To Be Seen MTBS Releases Stereoscopic 3D Programming Guide Online!

New MTBS Programming Guide Gives Game Developers Required Tools for Effective Stereoscopic 3D Programming and Added Competitiveness

San Diego CA – March 12, 2007 D OMeant to be SeenO (MTBS), a new Stereoscopic 3D advocacy, certification, and discount organization, has successfully released itsO first Stereoscopic 3D Programming Guide at the recent Game Developers Conference. It is now available as a free download at

Stereoscopic 3D solutions offer visible depth through two-dimensional media. This is a huge breakthrough in videogame technology because it adds an intense immersion and thrill to otherwise ordinary games. Examples include munitions flying outside the screen, realistic awe-inspiring explosions, and characters that seem to reach out and touch the player. In a competitive field such as videogame development, this is a benefit that todayOs game publishers canOt afford to overlook.

OThe release of this guide was very successful and very much needed. The last Stereoscopic 3D programming guide was released by NVIDIA in July 2004 – so the industry was due for an update! Based on resources from NVIDIA and 3rd party expertise, this document is an invaluable tool for game publishers who are trying to stay competitive,O said Neil Schneider, President and CEO of OMeant to be SeenO.

Independently run, MTBS represents the interests of end consumers and providers of stereoscopic 3D solutions including LCD shutter glasses, Polarized Monitors, Auto-Stereoscopic Monitors, Head Mounted Displays (HMD), Stereoscopic Projection Systems, and future technologies. To aid game purchasers in making informed buying decisions, MTBS will be certifying games both in the market and in development according to the level of stereoscopic hardware compatibility.

The MTBS guide works for most hardware solutions, and enhancements include recommended programming calls, problem workarounds, and additional criteria that will help widen Stereoscopic 3D compatibility in games.

OThe success of the MTBS guide went beyond our expectations D iZ3D is pleased to be involved with the Meant to be Seen organization. We ran out of MTBS guides the first day of the show, and thanks to some fast photocopying, there are almost a thousand programmers who now have the competitive advantage of knowing how to program for stereoscopic 3D,O said David Chechelashvili, VP of Marketing for iZ3D LLC.

iZ3D is the first company to provide an unrestricted education grant to help make this organization possible, and the industry is looking forward to the new 22O iZ3D monitor release in May. As an added incentive, the new 22O iZ3D monitor will be discounted for MTBS members by almost 20% ($180 off the current retail price of $999).

OMeant to be SeenO is also expecting initial videogame certification results in the near future.
OIOm getting a lot of emails about certification results from members, so please visit our website regularly for updates. ItOs a very stringent process with many game developer benefits – so itOs very important we do this right the first time,O Schneider explained.

Stereoscopic 3D gamers are the most valuable players in todayOs market because they spend thousands of dollars on computer systems for the purpose of playing videogames. When game developers earn certification, MTBS will officially award and certify the work as safe Stereoscopic 3D compatible purchases, and provide a complementary ad campaign on
