The Next Dimension in Home Entertainment:

January 7, 2009

ATLANTA, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ — 3D isn’t just for the movie theaters
anymore; very soon viewers will be able to enjoy a true 3D experience right in
their own home. Next3D has developed a ground-breaking technology that allows
consumers to receive theatrical 3D films, 3D IMAX films, movie trailers,
real-time stereo camera webcasts and other 3D content directly to their
XBOX 360 or PC. “We believe that gaming is likely to drive stereoscopic
technology into the home,” says David Cole, CEO of Next 3D, “and we’ll be
there to complete the media experience.”

In an effort to prepare for the expected demand, Hollywood is now
releasing big-budget 3D movies at the rate of one per month and professional
sporting events are being broadcast in 3D. Low-cost 3D cameras and even 3D
web-cams are becoming available. This week at the Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas, many top television manufacturers around the world including
Sony, LG, and Panasonic will be announcing 3D ready TV’s, and both Samsung and
Mitsubishi have already shipped an estimated 2 million 3D ready plasmas and
DLP-based TV’s.

Next3D content is encoded with a tool that allows it to be viewed in full
stereoscopic 3D 1080P high-definition. Like YouTube, Next3D will offer
user-created content channels for stereo enthusiasts to post and share 3D
video and still images. Premium, pay-to-view content channels will also be
available by mid-year. Initial Next3D content providers include rights holders
to 3D IMAX films, theatrical 3D films, and movie trailers. The Next3D Movie
Player will be free to consumers on every platform. “Remember how iTunes
revolutionized getting the music you want?” adds D.J. Roller, Co-founder of
Next3D, “That’s how easy we’re making 3D.”

The Next3D Player will be available for XBOX 360s and PCs this spring.
