Optical Technology Developer Launches Ultimate Depth Enhancing Device with the V-Screen for PSP(TM) 1000, 2000, 3000 and Slim


Los Angeles, Calif. (December, 2009) - Handheld video games will enter a new age of visual excitement in January at the annual CES trade show with the introduction of the V-Screen from RealView TM Innovations, a developer of optical technology located in Ireland. Designed specifically for the Sony? PSP TM , the V-Screen provides patented "Depth-Enhancing" screen technology that makes 2-dimensional content appear more clear, bright and realistic than ever before, similar to a 3D experience. The V-Screen will be on display at Booth #5621 North Hall.

A New Visual Experience

The V-Screen uses patented optical technology first developed for the medical world in order to enhance depth cues hidden in existing images. Now video gamers can experience the same depth-enhancement technology with PSPTM 1000, 2000, 3000 and Slim. Equally impressive, the V-Screen doesn't require any software, electronics or head gear. It simply attaches to the PSPTM as a flip-up screen that includes a protective shell to guard the PSPTM from exterior damage.

"Our team of developers has collaborated on an array of technological projects ranging from medical imaging, industrial and military optics, to astronomy and 3D imaging. All that expertise has been used in developing the V-Screen, creating an entirely new visual PSPTM experience."
