San Diego, Calif., February 25, 2009 -- iZ3D Inc., designer, developer and pioneer of advanced stereoscopic 3D visualization systems, is pleased to announce a new addition to its trophy chest. Readers and followers of the popular gaming website Gameindustry.com honored the 22-inch 3D monitor display system by naming it the “2008 Game of the Year - Best Peripheral.”
“If 2009 becomes the year of the 3D game, it will be because of the gains made by companies like iZ3D in 2008. The 22-inch 3D LCD was the first real mass-produced LCD monitor that let games literally take their favorite titles into the next dimension. Today the prices on these amazing monitors are falling rapidly, so the final barrier to widespread acceptance of 3D could soon be crossed,” commented John Breeden, Editor in Chief of Game Industry News.
“As a pioneer in the development of 3D drivers and hardware for stereoscopic 3D, 2008 marked another milestone in our pursuit of bringing 3D to the consumer market. More off the shelf 3D games, 3D TV broadcasts and thirty-two 3D movies are slated to be distributed in 2009,” stated Thomas Striegler, CEO of iZ3D Inc. ”3D as a viable delivery medium is here to stay,” he added.
iZ3D’s 3D gaming display products are among the first 3D displays being offered nationwide in brick and mortar stores. In addition, the iZ3D monitors are available online at Staples Online, NewEgg, Amazon, Critical Buy, and other e-tailers. Consumers can easily find a listing of store locations and get information on iZ3D’s products and special offers at www.3drulez.com.
In recent months iZ3D has made headlines as it introduced the first 3D monitors with custom painted designs from Smooth Creations®, released its new industry-standard-setting 3D display driver, announced channel distribution partnerships with Ingram Micro and D&H Distributing Company, made 3D monitors significantly more affordable, and announced a partnership with AMD which included an ATI 3DLP driver and $50 rebate offer for ATI Radeon™ graphics card customers.

The iZ3D 22-inch monitor has a new manufacturer’s suggested resale price of $399.00 and is currently available at Fry’s and Micro Centers as well as online stores including www.staples.com, www.newegg.com, www.amazon.com, www.pcmall.com, www.criticalbuy.com, www.iz3d.com, and other online shopping sites.
This is awesome news! I personally use this monitor at home and I can say without a doubt that it is the best 3D monitor I have seen yet. You can use for everyday 2D use as well!
