LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

Prior to its presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the
International 3D Society today announced the companies which will be honored
for achievement in 3D technology.

“The Awards Committee focuses on technologies that represent genuine advances
in 3D and that have a demonstrated impact on the 3D professional or consumer,”
said Jim Mainard, Chairman of the Society's 3D Technology Awards Committee and
Head of Digital Strategy at DreamWorks Animation.

“As our industry gathers at the Consumer Electronics Show to see the future of
technology, the Society recognizes the people and organizations who are
inventing 3D’s future,” said Jim Chabin, President of the Society. “3D movies
again scored 5 of the top 10 highest grossing hits of this past year,
including: ‘The Hobbit,’ ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spiderman,’ ‘Brave,’ and
‘Madagascar.’ 3D Blu-rays are being seen by millions of consumers on their new
3D flat screens. The companies receiving our Lumiere™ statuettes have helped
to create much of this magic for fans in theatres and at home.”

                             Samsung Electronics

                               3ality Technica
