PureDepth Announces Depth Fusion 3D Imaging Driver for Multi-Layer Displays

First 3D Driver for Displaying 3D Content with True Depth-of-Vision

PureDepth™, Inc. (OTC: PDEP), a global leader in next-generation display technologies and the pioneer of multi-layer display technology, today announced the development of the Depth Fusion 3D Driver. The Depth Fusion Driver will enable existing 3D content of all kinds to be displayed on a multi-layer display (MLD™) in real-time without modification to the content’s underlying code.

“The Depth Fusion driver is a critical milestone toward establishing PureDepth enabled displays as the next evolutionary leap in digital display technology,” said Fred Angelopoulos, CEO of PureDepth. “As MLD enabled monitors, televisions and hand-held devices roll out into mass consumer and entertainment markets, the ability to display compelling 3D content without device modification will allow for a seamless transition to this next generation of enhanced displays.”

The MLD Depth Fusion technique involves rendering a 3D object or scene with partial transparency on both layers of the multi-layer display on a per-pixel basis, such that it appears as a single volumetric 3D object fused between the physical LCD layers. It works by splitting a scene based on a certain distance or set of distance parameters and rendering the “nearer” portion(s) of the scene on the front-most of an MLD’s two offset screens and the rest on the back screen. The split uses overlapping gradients to ensure the 3D objects appear continuous between the two physical LCD screens and, in this way, digitally rendered 3D objects and environments have true depth for the first time.

A driver level implementation means 3D applications and games can utilize the Depth Fusion effect without being modified. The driver simply hooks into the 3D graphics rendering pipeline and modifies the color – and hence the apparent transparency – of each pixel rendered on the screen according to the depth information and user defined parameters for separation and continuous gradients.

PureDepth technology is an LCD layered, multi-dimensional (using real depth between two or more LCD panels) viewing innovation that enables users to simultaneously view two separate fields of data on one monitor. By overlaying two more separate image planes within a single monitor, PureDepth technology provides true depth of vision that significantly enhances the visual experience with faster response to time-critical data and better assimilation and comprehension of data of any kind.
