Dimension Technologies, founded in 1986, has a long history of research and entrepreneurial awards and government contracts. DTI holds many of the world's major patents in the fields of switchable 2D/3D displays and high resolution imaging, and has marketed increasingly sophisticated - and affordable - 3D imaging products. The displays require no clunky glasses or cumbersome headgear, and provide full resolution 2D viewing at the push of a button - the only commercially available 3D displays in the world with that capability.
