DVI deal to bring 3D to the desktop

Korean company GTT Co. Ltd. will be the first manufacturer of desktop monitors which use Deep Video Imaging Ltd.'s (DVI) Multi-Layer Display (MLD) technology to give a 3D look to PC displays, DVI said Wednesday.

GTT expects to launch an 18.1-inch (45-centimeter) LCD (liquid crystal display) monitor incorporating DVI's 3D technology in the first half of 2003, according to a statement from DVI, based in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Unlike conventional stereoscopic 3D displays, which require users to wear special spectacles to appreciate a 3D image, DVI's technology uses two physically separate layers of pixels to create the impression of depth and can be viewed by users working normally, DVI said.

In a typical 15-inch format, DVI's ActualDepth monitors consist of two planes of pixels, one with 1,024 pixel by 768 pixel resolution and the other with 1,280 pixel by 1,024 pixel resolution.

This approach makes it easier to for users to absorb information, and reduces eyestrain, DVI has said. No typical price for a MLD-based monitor was given.

The two companies expect the financial services, medical and gaming markets to be the first candidates for the MLD screens, with complex visualization applications such as process control, data analysis and presentation applications also likely to benefit from the 3D approach. Specialized MLD displays are being used in defense and avionics applications.

GTT President K. Koo said he believed that depth is inevitably going to replace flat screen technology just as color replaced black and white and stereo sound replaced mono, according to the statement.

DVI has licensed the 3D technology to GTT, based in Koyang City, Korea, which will pay a royalty on each display shipped, DVI said.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
