  • Diane,
    reposted here so that you know who posted this comment,
    I cannot comment on your patent issues that seem to be many from this presentation. Importantly though I want to caution you on using the work ’holographic’. This term is not a catch all phrase for any ’potentially 3D’ media, but specifically designates a type of 3D image that is Phase based in the reconstruction of spatial information through the generation or playback of fringe gratings that reconstruct an objects wavefront, a subset if you will of the wider 3D imaging process. your process is not a phase based 3D imaging process. In fact that very point that you make that your image is in focus everywhere goes to prove that it is not a 3D wavefront that has been created but a 2D image projection. 3D wave fronts focus at the point of an objects location and diverge again from that point. All other issues that you are making in this presentation related to your prior art probably will inevitably have to be sorted out in a court just due to the very long history of laser scanning and projection. best of luck

  • 4. Over 40 PATENTS REFER TO TROYER’S PATENTS• Coherent• Santur Corporation (Fremont, CA) ---- (3 patents)• Motorola• Stratos International, Inc. (Chicago, IL)• Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. (Houston, TX) (3 patents)• Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, Inc. (Irvine, CA) (2 patents)• Eastman Kodak Company (Rochester, NY) (3 patents)• Trumpf Lasertechnik GmbH (Ditzingen, DE)• Technifex, Inc. (Valencia, CA)• Matsushita Electrical• Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA)• EADS Deutschland GmbH (Munich, DE)• Hewlett Packard and Epson• Note: 2005: Intel was developing a LCOS reflective light valve display. An Intel VP contacted Troyer about the patented approach with lasers. Intel engineers explored ZTV infinite focus architecture to enhance and simplify the Intel design and make their display more competitive. The Intel CEO decided the lasers were not mature at that point and dropped the 100 million dollar display project. Many were waiting for the Intel display and Intel stock fell. The world market is still waiting for such a display. Finally the lasers are mature.• Intel has been asked by DreamWorks to find the best solution for 3D movies.

  • 15. watch movie TRW War Room Projector to Streamlined Patented MZTV http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yCTJQirAv8&feature=mfu_in_order&list=ULHISTORY: TRW TO MZTV: Troyer up graded TRW model: Reduced0ptics, installed 24 watt gas laser. She tested red dyes for bestwhites and disproved classic industry myth: Use 610 nm. orangered for brightest image; Troyer proved 635 nm. deeper redproduced better white and film like digital bright colors.Infinite depth of focus laser attribute introduced to Hollywood.
  • 16. KISS: Keep It Simple StreamliningWatch Movie carefully to see foreground andbackground separation– Z Factor.http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=UKgdiIrgdyo&vq=medium#t=77• Images are always in focus---even in the wall corners.• Images in curved space: pictures have more depth.• Room is small: gas laser power is turned down.• More depth dimension on a Cinerama or Dome• More depth with irregular screen: water, fog, steam, Balloons, clouds, ice, scrims, etc.
  • 17. 3D DEPTH BUGS FLOATINGZ Factor More Dimensional in Curved Space Images are Flatter on the Flat Back Wall
  • 18. EXPLANATION HOW TROYER UNDERSTANDS LASER PROJECTIONTroyer is trained hands on multi-media designer and producer.Troyer’s back ground: Film & TV production, editing, special effects.Troyer designed a popular Multi-Media TV Studio Club in Midwest.Troyer was hired to design studio and staging for Hollywood Palladium.She wanted a realistic display for rear projected real time curved backsets.(Full color, high resolution and contrast, adjust to curve, dimensional images).Troyer scoured labs; Found no solutions; but GE Telaria had good colors.Troyer discovered TRW laser projector used for war room walls.Troyer tested with white board moved in image path (image always focused)Troyer understood instantly: infinite focus missing link for “CAVE” realities.War Room displays flat screens: TRW found the infinite focus a distraction.Troyer representative: TRW projector to the Hollywood Studio theme parks.TRW only laser projector that has been successfully launched: Ran 24/7 for 3 years; 97% up time. Over $500 million invested in R&D. Sold for $360,000 each.
  • 19. STREAMLINED LASER DISPLAY APPROACHTRW contract was over: projectors were mothballed right before Desert Storm.(No room for laser battery backup 6 floors underground) SAC, MAC, NORAD.Troyer purchased at auction at SAC base in Omaha the 8 laser projectors.Troyer opened lab in Los Angeles; Hands on experience/ many upgradesTRW supported with boxes of studies, R&D and drawings, engineering advice.Studio demonstrations: Great feed back and suggestions from experts.TRW laser projectors delivered laser beams directly out of the lens (not eye safe).TRW design was not optically efficient. More than 40 optics in the optic train.Upgrades made obvious the defects and limitations of TRW design.Patent: 1994: solid state laser projector to replace gas lasersPatent: 2001: Broad colors (Troyer had mixed red dyes for best whites)Broadband and more light efficient: Modulation with reflective light valve.The art before was to modulate with acoustic optic modulation (RF).Troyer proved what experts said impossible (infinite focus with reflective light valve)Troyer design streamlined lasers projectors (8 optics for better light efficiency).Eye safe with reflected laser beam line scanning (instead of direct laser beams)
  • 20. Troyer’s Eye Safety Design• Troyer first worked with Greg Axtell (TRW)• Axtell negotiated with FDA for TRW for first laser clearance.• Air Force Command and Control War room walls.• Troyer has copies: first FDA paper work and interlock designs.• Interlocks shut off laser light if problem: FDA approval.• TRW laser beams straight out of lens, so dangerous .• Troyer needed FDA approval with every location move of upgraded TRW laser projectors. Video music (Stevie NIX)• Troyer’s patented designs and claims: more eye safe.• Laser beam generated into elongated line beam; fast line scanning reflected off light valve. Merged into one image. Laser lines scanned on screen. No direct beams in eyes.• As safe as looking into bright arc lamps and big slide projector.
  • 21. Eye safe: engineer is looking into the lens. Fast scanning reflected raster laser lines are as eye safe as big arc lamps
  • 22. MZTV Automatically adjusts in thewall corner. Of course the imagesadjustment is more even on a domeor Cinerama screen.
  • 23. Three laser beams (RGB) are scanned on reflective light valvesand combined or there can be two channel streams for stereo Laser beams expanded; scanned on reflective light valve. Even distribution of laser beam light across scan. Spatially modulated laser images have depth Z factor.
  • 24. METAZ TRON VISION AMPLIFIES IMAGES• In real time to dimensional space• Auto stereo (without the need of glasses)• Full spectrum infinite depth of focus• Saturated film like broadband colors• Scalability with image enhancement• FDA approved: reflected scan laser lines• Reflected scanning does not harm eyes• Laser scanning lines create bright images• Enough laser power: bright as slide projector• Bright 80 ft. screen IMAX arc film projector
  • 25. STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPSMost important is creating the best MetaZ tronVision projectors for Pico to large dome screens.We plan to introduce MZTV platforms globally.We are now in the process of locating the rightstrategic partners that bring savvy “know how”experience to the enterprise.We want to work with strategic partners that are infor the long haul – with a global reach.
  • 26. MetaZtron Patent Situation• Troyer was issued a Canadian patent: Feb 28, 2011• Canadian patents verify/validate US patent 2001, 2005, and 2006. Also India and Mexican patents.• Troyer’s MetaZtron Laser Projector innovation and patents are endorsed by International experts.• MZTV: streamlined linchpin approach for mobile, suitcase, home, industrial and big dome 3D theater applications.• Kodak demonstrated a laser projector to industry leaders in late 2010. Kodak is using the patented Troyer approach.• Kodak’s justification is that they are not licensing projector but licensing their optic train path.• Kodak uses the DLP reflective light valve. The Troyer claims for US patent 2006 and Canadian patent cover all reflective light valves: LCoS, DLP, MEMS, or any to be invented.• The Troyer published white paper 2000 and SBIR 2005 discuss using two channels for stereo. Using two channel stereo does not write around the Troyer patent claims.
  • 27. IMAX DOES NOT HAVE RIGHTS• http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/1222364361001/imax-ceo- on-laser-projection-patents-deal-with-kodak/• Kodak did not use their grating light valve laser patents for their demonstration. They used the Troyer patented process.• http://metatroy.wordpress.com/• This blog explains the patent situation. Also it discusses the patents for the Hologram LinkedIn Discussion group.
  • 28. Zuddites (Modern Luddites)• Troyer and team held demonstrations of the patented Metatron Laser Projector in California 2000 -2003• IMAX dome (San Jose Tech Museum), we projected a boxing match and a DVD of Fifth Element• The customers jumped up shouting. They had no idea that amplification of the images without pixels was possible on an IMAX dome – in real time.• Metatron automatically adjusts to the dome screen and has Image depth (front separates from background).• Experts from Kodak, Disney, IMAX, Sony, Warner, Technicolor etc. attended Troyer Metatron private demonstrations.• Metatron had orders for ten plus 46 projectors from clients. Zuddites (modern Luddites) stopped the Metatron delivery of the first 10 assembled projectors to clients (stole projectors – never recovered).• They attempted to stamp out Metatron progress and take over technology. The Troyer patents saved the Technology.
  • 29. LIPA• LIPA (Laser Illuminated Projector Association) http://www.lipainfo.org/• Non-profit consortium to promote digital cinema laser projection• IMAX, Sony, Kodak, Nec, Disney, Barco, Christies are members of the Technology.• LIPA promotes the Kodak demonstration design as the prototype to show proof of concept for lasers and reflective light valves projectors.• Troyer has been issued 8 patents on laser polarization to the screen.• No other group has patents for laser projector with lasers directed on a reflective light valve (spatial modulator) with full color spectrum– 635 nm. red and above, and keeping the polarization/ coherence (Laser inherent beam quality) through out the optic system to the screen.• Troyer receiving Canadian patent February 28, 2011 makes infringement not as feasible, in the fact the Canadian patent examiners agreed their was no prior art and that the Troyer claims are strong and stand.• Other infringements: Light Blue Optics, HDI LTD, AaXatech, Microvision
  • 30. ESTIMATED WORTH Licensing, Assignment, Strategic Partners EVALUATORS ACCESS MZTV PATENTS AS “STRONG” Demonstration models show ‘Proof of Concept’If the business model is handled correctly and the patents arecarefully monitored for infringement, a great deal of income canbe received from strategic partner licensing and building newFranchise Companies and sub-companies.NOTE: Industry is frustrated: there are no laser projectors on theMarket (Evans & Sutherland mothballed – was not bright and didnot have infinite focus). Many companies have placed hundredsof millions into development of laser displays and have failed. Thus, the Industry is waiting in anticipation for auto dimensional HIVE laser imaging.
  • 31. MANY COMPANIES ARE WORKING ON LASER PROJECTORS (KODAK: demonstrating digital cinema Laser Projector)• Kodak is stating that they will sell the stereo optic train design to clients.• IMAX is now partners with Laser Light Engine group to flood reflective light valve with laser light instead of arc lamp light. This is not an efficient use of laser light and causes ghosting artifacts, so will not work.• Sony has developed a laser module. Samsung, Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Barco and many others are working on laser displays.• Troyer patents: US, India, Mexico and Canada: full motion picture color with lasers addressed to a reflective light valve. The laser images are spatially modulated with Z factor depth and keep the collimation to the screen for infinite depth of focus and dimensional images.• MZTV (approved by global experts as the laser projector solution).• MZTV has open architecture patents on the whole projector.• We use reflective light valves that works best for us: DLP, LCOS, etc.• Troyer 2006 patent and Canada covers all reflective light valves.• MZTV is assembled for the application with best light valve device.• HIVE ZELF platform applications are developed in open architecture environments by chartered clients.
  • 32. More On Kodak Using Troyer’s Patented Processhttp://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20100007852LASER ILLUMINATED MICRO-MIRROR PROJECTORwww.kodak.com/go/laserprojectionDLP is a micro-mirror (reflective light valve).The 2006 Troyer patent claims cover laser scanning and modulation by any/ allreflective light valves (claims broadened from liquid crystal reflective light valve)Kodak refers to the Troyer patents in at least 3 of their patents.Kodak states they are not manufacturing or selling lasers projectors.Kodak is selling optic path plans to other companies who wish to assemble lasers.Kodak uses lasers, keeping the polarization and coherence for their 3D.Kodak presents two channel stereo using the infinite focus attribute.This is a described process in Troyer white papers including 2005 SBIR.MetaZtron experts feel that auto dimensional (without glasses) is a better approach tostereo– using the infinite sharp focus as described in the 2005 SBIR white paper.Kodak Prototype model uses the claims from Troyer patents• Lasers with reflective light valve; 635 nm red or above for full color spectrum mix.• Infinite sharp depth of focus images retaining laser beam coherence, collimation and polarization to screen to create full color dimensional (with depth) images.• Other claims (patent claim study on request)
  • 33. Troyer Patents Cover Full Projector Open Architecture To EvolveReflective Light Valve (RLV)• Troyer MZTV patents: reflective light valve laser projector.• Troyer patents cover a projector, not just a vendor parts or an application.• Troyer patent granted in 2006 broadens the 2001 claims: Any reflective light valve meaning DLP, MEMS, LCOS, or any other to be invented.• The Kodak and Silicon Light Machine (SLM) patents are for a grated light valve –not a full projector.• All high end Digital Cinema projectors (approved to show Hollywood studio movies) use a Reflective Light Valve (RLV).• Kodak and IMAX use the DLP mirror for their laser projectors.• HDI uses the LCOS. Light Blue Optics uses a LCOS.• Microvision uses a MEMS which modulates the image and reflects light.

  • 42. Laser TV: predict 2 billion a yearJuly 26, 2011: Robert Dwilinski, Ammono’s president andfounder, told IEEE Spectrum. “Laser projectors will probably oustbig, energy consuming and expensive LCD TVs. It is estimatedthat the demand for laser TVs will reach up to two billion a year,”adds DwilinskiDigital Cinema: Lasers will replace arc lamps. Kodak describedtheir ground-up approach with many clear and obvious benefits,which theater owners, as represented by Dave Castelli, agreedwere very appealing to them. Theaters are running their lampslonger and dimmer and creating poor 3D experiences becausethe costs are killing them. Castelli said one theater chain justincreased its operating budget for a 14-plex significantly - tocover high lamp costs - even with the above shortcuts, costs arehigh so reducing operating expense is a big deal for them.

I am very happy to hear that the production of yourLaser Projector is progressing. I greatly appreciate your keeping me in the know.The sooner you can go into production, the sooner I can lease your projectors. Then I can starttaking advantage of your projectors capabilities to solve some of my production problems, andgive our creative minds a new tool to work with to create new vistas.On a recent remote production at SeaWorld in Orlando with Wheel of Fortune, a laser projectorwould have been the perfect tool to use to project on two air balloons that we used on the set,as well as onto the two fountains in the background. The solution we came up with was lessthen ideal, and far more money then I wanted to spend. When dealing with the Art Departmentand our technicians, there were many times I wished I had the laser technology available to me.I look forward to hearing from you soon, with the good news that I can start renting your laserprojectors.Best of Luck, Bob SofiaCoordinating Producer; Technical Supervisor --Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy!(310) 244-5946; off.
