FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RAZOR3D INKS DEAL TO PRODUCE TWENTY 3D DVD MOVIES
Unique 2D/3D Product Taps into Fast Growing 3D Movie Consumer Market
Menlo Park, Calif., August 13, 2002 - Razor3D (www.razor3d.com) today
announced it has entered into an agreement with X3D Technologies
(www.3dworld.com) to produce twenty 3D movie titles in DVD format. The
movies will be classic productions from a variety of genres: horror, action,
scifi, B-monster, detective and family. Titles include well known hits such
as "Night of the Living Dead;" "The Chinese Connection," starring Bruce Lee;
and "To Kill a Mockingbird," starring Gregory Peck.
"We've started with movies that are popular with diverse audiences," said
Ryan Oto, Marketing Director of Razor3D. "By converting these well-known
titles to 3D, we create an entirely new entertainment experience for both
first-time and repeat viewers."
The 3D titles in DVD format will be authored using X3D Technologies's
proprietary z3D process. z3D allows a single DVD to include both 2D and 3D
versions of the movie. In addition, the technology allows viewers to switch
between 2D and 3D versions by hitting a single button on the DVD remote
control. 3D movies produced using z3D have backgrounds that appear to be
inside the TV and objects that occasionally seem to fly out of the TV.
Electronic 3D glasses are required to view the 3D version of the movie.
"We are very excited about the 3D DVD business opportunity", said Elliot
Klein, President of X3D Technologies. "During the past year, we saw a great
market emerge for 3D DVDs even though there were very few titles available.
With a growing number of well-known titles, we plan to build an important
library of 3D DVDs and contribute to the growth of this new market."
Availability and Pricing
The first new 3D movie in DVD format will be available on September 20,
2002. All twenty 3D titles in DVD format will be available by spring of
2003. The suggested retail price of the DVDs will be $19.95.
