3D Monitor has gone Mainstream - Sets Price for Wide Holiday Distribution

Go 3D this Christmas with iZ3D! New lower price for 22-inch widescreen 3D monitors.

iZ3D has taken a bold move to make 3D mainstream this Christmas

San Diego, Calif. (December 3, 2008) - iZ3D LLC, designer, marketer and enabler of advanced 3D visualization systems, has been quietly but actively promoting the adoption of 3D display technology since 2007. Now the company's breakthrough approach, widely hailed by users as delivering a premier 3D experience, is being priced to make it affordable to casual and enthusiast gamers.

Effective December 1st, the manufacturer's suggested resale price for the company's 22 -inch widescreen switchable 3D/2D monitor will be $399.00. The new price has already been reflected at various online e -tailers with plans for availability at in -store retailers to be disclosed in the coming weeks.

"3D isn't new but our approach to it is. We're pioneering new 3D with active programs in display and glasses design, stereoscopic 3D software drivers and media players, 3D players groups, events, and networking, 3D content certification and enablement, and system solution partnerships," stated Thomas Striegler, CEO of iZ3D LLC. The price change, which makes our solution more affordable than ever, is just the latest 3D milestone we've crossed as the leader in this new frontier," he added.

iZ3D premiered its first generation 17 -inch 3D monitor in 2006. Improvements in the technology, design, and in -house software drivers converged in 2007 with the release of the 22 -inch widescreen model. While critically acclaimed and hailed by customers, the initial price of $999 was beyond the reach of most gamers.

The new $399 solution price, roughly the price of 5 -10 games, includes:

22 -inch widescreen switchable 3D/2D monitor
iZ3D output and anaglyph output drivers
3 pairs of passive linear polarized glasses
All power and video cables
Quick start guide
1 Year warranty
Technical Support
Free membership in iZ3D's upcoming 3D gaming league
iZ3D also offers the 22 -inch monitor in six special edition custom -painted models created by Smooth Creations. These models, available only at www.iz3d.com, were commissioned at the request of customers that wanted their 3D monitors to stand out at LAN parties and grab attention. The custom -painted monitor price has also been reduced to $549.00

The iZ3D Solution

The iZ3D solution includes a widescreen monitor, viewing glasses, and software drivers. iZ3D developed this unique technology to create an adjustable viewing environment that delivers 3D without the eyestrain, spatial disorientation, or headaches commonly associated with other 3D approaches.

The 22 -inch monitor, which is optimized for 3D viewing, can also be easily toggled into a 2D mode when required for productivity applications or email. In 3D mode, viewers see bright, sharp 3D images or video simply by installing the software driver and wearing any of eight iZ3D passive polarized glasses. New or existing PCs equipped with a dual -output video card easily power the display.

Monitor Specifications include:
- 1680 x 1050 resolution

- Up to 170 -degree 3D viewing angle

- 5ms response time

- 700:1 contrast ratio

- 16.7 -million colors

- 300 nits

Most PC games released in the last five years, including many of the most popular multiplayer online, first person shooter, and role -playing games, have already been designed for 3D displays. iZ3D's optimized driver unlocks the third (depth) dimension of these 3D -ready games to allow gamers to finally play them as they were written - in 3D.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
