Vuzix Offers 3D DVD Titles for its Video Eyewear in the Latest Industry Standard Side-by-Side Format
Rochester, NY - March 10, 2010 - Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX), the world leader in Video Eyewear, introduces a collection of 3D DVD titles now available for purchase on the company's web store at http://www.vuzix.com . These DVDs are mastered for viewing on its Video Eyewear and compatible 3D television sets. The initial list of 14 movies, from "Jaws 3D" to "SOS Planet", is just the start of a growing portfolio that will give owners of Vuzix Video Eyewear even more 3D viewing options.
Though 3D DVDs have been available for some time, they are hard to find and can sometimes have questionable quality. Vuzix 3D tiles are all in the latest Side-by-Side format; just one of the multiple formats supported by Vuzix Video Eyewear. In fact Side-by-Side 3D support was recently approved as a mandatory 3D format by the consumer electronics industry for upcoming 3D displays, ensuring Vuzix Video Eyewear users will have lots of future 3D viewing opportunities. Now movie buffs can bring home these DVDs, view upcoming 3D television broadcasts and new 3D Hollywood blockbusters on their personal big screen 3D Video Eyewear, without spending $2,000-$7,000 on one of the new 3D TVs expected to be available later this year.
Vuzix CEO, Paul Travers, says: "It is exciting for our users to have this growing list of 3D titles available from a single source with the assurance they will work with their Vuzix 3D Video Eyewear. Upgrading to a home 3D experience is expected to cost thousands of dollars through the replacement of a user's HD television; whereas Vuzix' customers can enjoy a big screen 3D experience today with the purchase of a pair of Vuzix Video Eyewear for as little as $249."
