SENSIO Announces its First SENSIO(R) Autodetect Integration Deal With Major Semiconductor Manufacturer08:30 EST Monday, January 28, 2013MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2013) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX VENTURE:SIO) today announced that it has signed its first license agreement for the integration of SENSIO® Autodetect into SoCs destined to the consumer electronics market with an important semiconductor manufacturer that asked to remain anonymous for competitive reasons. The components will be commercially made available in 2013 for 3DTV and media streaming device manufacturers."Integration deals with SoC manufacturers are the first step in making new products and technologies available to our consumer electronics clients," said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO at SENSIO. "After years of development and perfecting, the latest version of SENSIO® Autodetect has now reached the level of performance and maturity to achieve commercial success on the CE market. Signing our first Autodetect integration deal was a top priority for SENSIO and we are extremely pleased with today's announcement which underlines the inherent market demand for such technology that greatly improves the overall 3D consumer experience. At last, this value-added feature will be made available to 3DTV makers in the current calendar year adding new potential revenue streams for SENSIO in the near future."SENSIO® Autodetect is a feature that dramatically enhances the usability of devices for viewing 3D video by quickly, reliably and automatically detecting the input format, whether 2D, side-by-side, top-and-bottom or SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D. Devices not equipped with SENSIO® Autodetect require their users to navigate through on-screen menus and select the appropriate 3D format before they can view unidentified 3D content or revert to 2D viewing afterwards, making the experience complex, unintuitive and irritating. SENSIO® Autodetect eliminates this confusion, enabling consumers to view 3D content without fuss or efforts. Designed for integration into AVRs (audio/video receivers), STBs (set-top boxes), 3DTVs, BD (Blu-ray players) and streaming devices, this SENSIO patent-pending technology has been optimized to meet SoC, CE manufacturers and consumer needs alike.For further information on SENSIO and its technologies www.sensio.tvAbout SENSIO Technologies Inc.
