StereoGraphics to Offer New Emitters in its Stereo3D Product Line

New Personal Desktop and Large Venue Emitters Added

SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2001-- StereoGraphics® Corporation, the world's leading supplier of stereoscopic visualization products, announces a family of new emitters to cover all types of stereoscopic viewing environments. These new emitters are designed for visualizing complex 3D images in theater and immersive VR (Virtual Reality) environments, in presentation rooms, as well as at personal desktops. They work in conjunction with any of StereoGraphics Stereo3D(TM) products, such as CrystalEyes® 3 shuttering eyewear and ZScreen® panels and projection systems.

"Our new emitters ensure that each customer will have the best emitter for their specific environment," said Ian Matthew, director of marketing, StereoGraphics Corporation. "We believe that our end-users and system integrators will benefit from the simplified in-field connections and better infrared coverage for their specific environments whether that be a work area, conference room, CAVE® or theater."

The New Products

Three new emitters are being introduced, each serving a different user's specific needs. The E-2 emitter is a standard VESA-compatible work area emitter for desktop use with a 12ft. maximum I/R (infrared) range and replaces StereoGraphics E-PRO; an adapter and external power supply are provided as needed for specific UNIX configurations.

The ELR-2 long-range emitter offers the same maximum I/R range (20 ft.) and spread (90 degrees) as the ELR that it replaces, yet now features an output connector enabling simplified daisy-chaining for multiple emitters. An accessory kit is available for users desiring to set up multiple ELR-2s in large venues, with the advantage that a single external power will power up to 4 emitters.

The EXXR is an extra long-range emitter (70 ft. maximum range) with a broad IR spread (110 degrees), making it ideal for rear-projection active stereo installations as the emitter can be located behind the screen while still providing the wide coverage needed for large audiences. Power and stereo sync signal are provided through a 3-pin connector terminal, enabling simple in-field connections. The EXXR comes with a universal power supply and may be purchased in bundles of 3 for use in CAVEs and other immersive VR environments.

Pricing and Availability

The new emitters are available January 2, 2002. Suggested retail pricing in US dollars is as follows: E-2, $200; ELR-2, $395; Large Venue Accessory Kit, $99; and, EXXR, $695 for single unit and $1,995 for 3-unit bundle.
