TYZX Receives Notice of Allowance for Patent for Projecting Textured Patterns With Diffractive Optics for Calculating 3D Data With Stereo Vision

New Patented TYZX Technology Supports Interactive Gaming and Other Applications

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) - TYZX, the 3D vision technology company, today announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for TYZX's claims for the use of projecting a random textured pattern from a diffractive optimal element onto a target area in order for a stereo vision system to calculate distances to one or more points. This invention is called "Enhancing Stereo Depth Measurements with Projected Texture."

"For many applications, including gaming, 3D mapping, and robotics, projecting a textured pattern on poorly illuminated or featureless surfaces makes calculating range data more effective," said Ron Buck, President and CEO of TYZX. "By integrating a texture projector in a TYZX stereo vision system, we create a highly accurate, highly compact, real-time 3D vision solution ideally suited for home entertainment systems that support a variety of applications such as gaming."

This patent broadens TYZX's already extensive patent portfolio, which includes 11 other U.S. patents. A list of the company's U.S. patents is available here: http://www.tyzx.com/technology/patents.html.

TYZX applies its patents in its line of real-time 3D vision systems, including the TYZX DeepSea G3 Embedded Vision Systems (EVS). To learn more about the TYZX G3 EVS, please visit: http://www.tyzx.com/products/DeepSeaG3.html.
