SENSIO and Miranda Announce Partnership to Develop Suite of Broadcast Products for 3DTV

MONTREAL — April 7, 2010 — SENSIO® Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture: SIO) (“SENSIO” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SIO) and Miranda Technologies Inc. (TSX: MT) today announced a partnership to develop a suite of high-performance broadcast products to enable end-to-end Stereoscopic 3D playout.

The first Miranda product equipped with SENSIO technology is the Densite 3DX-3901 Stereoscopic 3D video processor module, which will be launched at the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The processor provides high-quality conversion of multiple 3D formats, including SENSIO 3D technology which offers visually loss-less compression-decompression technology for high-quality distribution of 3D content over existing 2D infrastructures.

The Densite 3DX-3901 provides conversion of Dual 1.5Gbps, Dual 3Gbps, Single 1.5Gbps, and Single 3Gbps signals. It features a single 3Gbps/HD input and dual 3Gbps/HD outputs; this allows previewing of conversion effects, as well as 3D/2D simulcasting. The processor also offers horizontal and vertical flip, interaxial adjustment, and Horizontal Image Translation for adjustments to depth positioning, and for simulating a 3D landscape from a 2D scene.

“The remarkable momentum of 3D is driving broadcasters’ demand for a fully-integrated suite of 3D-enabled systems that interoperate smoothly to ‘industrialize’ 3D playout workflows, and our partnership with Miranda is a key step towards this,” said Nicholas Routhier, president and CEO at SENSIO.

“Miranda now offers a range of Stereoscopic 3D products, spanning signal processing, multi-viewers, and channel branding, which simplify the transition to 3DTV production and playout,” said Jean-Marc d’Anjou, vice president Infrastructure at Miranda. “We’re aiming to strengthen our support for SENSIO 3D across our products, with upcoming product releases.”

SENSIO and Miranda will showcase their 3D technology at Miranda’s booth at the 2010 NAB Show in booth N2515.
