SENSIO Technologies Inc. announced that the Indian Patent Office has granted patent no. 242873 covering the SENSIO® S2D Switch. SENSIO already holds a patent covering this product in the United States.

The SENSIO® S2D Switch enables consumers to view 3D material in 2D, extending their accessibility to content and ensuring they get the most out of their investment in their 3D-enabled TV. For example, a movie purchased in 3D, via video-on-demand (VOD) and recorded on a DVR, can be viewed in 2D with the entire extended family on Thanksgiving evening, regardless of the number of pairs of 3D glasses owned. Later it can be viewed in its fully immersive 3D version.

This year's American Film Market reflects the trend, with a whopping number of indie 3D titles.
