METAZ TRON VISION (MZTV) Presented by Diane Troyer‘THIS IS THE TIME— SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY’ We are now transitioning from flat screen 2D vistas to the dimensional “cloud” MetaZtron Vision is Keystone for the Transition Diane Troyer (inventor) 818-795-2407 (cell) 319-512-1009 firstname.lastname@example.org www.metatronvision.com
Real Time 3D Cinerama/DomePROBLEM: No 3D in Curved SpaceNo projector (film or video) can project 3D in real time Have you seen 3D Avatar on an IMAX dome screen? Star Wars or Matrix (2D legacy features) in Cinerama? Music Tour streaming in 3D on a Drive In Cinerama screen? Boxing or soccer match in real time 3D on a dome? Metropolitan Opera real time dimensional feed? Hospitals displaying vivid endoscopic dimensional capture?Solution: MetaZtron Vision (MZTV)Z Rama: Auto Dimensional Cinerama Dome, Cinerama, Omnimax, CAVE, Virtual Environments, Augmented Reality, Simulation, Auto-Dimension, Meta-mash-up, HIVE, Telexistence,
MetaZtron Vision is to the HIVE what the Printing Press was to PublishingAudiences want 3D because images appear more realistic.Today 3D is all the rage, but the industry is still stuck in creatingdimensional images on 2D flat screens. Why?Because there is no projection/display method on the market toplace 3D in curved (depth space) such as Cinerama, Omnimax, ordome screens?• Metatron laser projector is called MetaZtron Vision (MZTV).• MZTV provides a new attribute, not available in other projectors.• MZTV patent process modulates Z (depth) in each image pixel.• Depth is needed for best 3D: X (width), Y (height) and Z (depth).• Cinerama/domes are the choice of audiences and gamers.• The depth (Z) images show best on curved screens.• We call this attribute the Z Factor
Z Factor: Vivid Sharp Depth Images In Each Pixel• Human’s view the world in sharp vivid dimension.• Holograms are formed by infinite sharp laser beams.• MZTV images are with infinite sharp laser beams.• Images have full spectrum natural colors.• MZTV transforms 2D media to vivid auto dimension.• Images adjust to curved or irregular screens.• No headaches, no glasses, no blurry images.• Dimensional images can be viewed from any angle.
The display is the computer," says Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. "Anywhere there‘s a pixel, thats where we want to be.“Leonardo DaVinci:The eye has a central line and everything thatreaches the eye through this central line can beseen distinctly.
Z Rama Curved Screens Depth for MZTV Z Factor Images.• Many have attempted 3D film/digital images on domes.• MZTV provides a vehicle for finally projecting holographic type dimensional images (with depth) in real time (without post house expensive processing).• The Troyer patented process retains the pixel Z depth with full color natural images using laser beams scanned on a reflective light valve (lasers instead of classic arc lamps).• Z (depth) spatial imaging is formed with modulated collimated coherent laser beams that keep their polarization. All digital cinema projectors use reflective light valves (DLP- Texas Instruments mirrors); LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon)
THE PLANETS HAVE ALIGNEDMZTV: 3D DIGITAL DOME DIMENSIONAL SOLUTION MetaZ Tron Vision transforms 2D images to 3D Automatically adjusts to curved screens Dimensional 3D on domes in real time Expensive two channel stereo images not needed Gaming and simulation become more realistic3D content transforms to auto dimensional (no glasses) Great Holy Grail Experience Opera on Z Rama (3D Cinerama) 2D Video Becomes Dimensional See 3D Avatar On MZTV Dome See STAR WARS in 3D – Real Time Experience “Being There ” Simulation
MissionIntroduce holographic vivid images, anywhere anytime frommobile devices to huge domes.Premise: Flimsy Logic- attempting to place 3D images on 2D flatscreens. Why not streamline by creating images in curved space?How: Projector with Z Factor: Spatial modulation in each laserpixel creates sharp depth focused images. Ability to create 3Dimages in curved space in real time. The images automaticallyadjust on any irregular surfaces or dome space.Goal: Deliver MZTV streamlined dimensional platform solutions ZELF: Zone Enhanced Location Fusion (MZTV platforms) HIVE: Holographic Immersive Virtual Environments Z RAMA: Curved dimensional Cinerama/dome screens
First Stage: Vehicle To Display 3D Images in Curved Space• Holograms are possible because of the inherent quality of focused laser beams.• Ambient light scatters the brightness, like the sun.• Ambient arc lamp projectors are incapable of creating infinite sharp images with depth of focus.• Arc lamp projectors do not work on curved screens because most of the brightness gathers in the center.• The patented MetaZtron Vision provides images that automatically adjust to curved screens.• How? Collimated laser beams deliver spatial images.• Z depth pixels images are scanned on the screen with even distribution of brightness, transforming 2D images to 3D (with depth).
Why Is MetaZtron Vision Disruptive?• Transforms 2D images with real time depth (3D)• Enhances images of any content feed• Sharp infinite depth• Vivid blacks with high contrast images• Saturated full spectrum colored images• Auto dimensional (3D) without glasses• Focused sharp images on curved dome screens• Realistic-- like the eyes see nature.MZTV is the Keystone for the HIVEMZTV transforms images to immersive dimension--- as dramatic as when silent films became talkies andcolor replaced black and white.
WITH THE Z FACTOR YOU CAN EXPERIENCE• Immersive dimensional themed dome rides.• Realistic images--- more like the eye sees nature.• Planetarium immersion: Saturn, Jupiter lighting.• Star fields: vivid blacks and saturated colors.• 3D interactive dome gaming immersive theater.• Teen Green Screen with Meta-Mash horror worlds.• Performance curved video staging backsets?• Opera dimensional staging transformed in real time.• Sports as happening in true visual capture quality.• Hand held mobile bright large 3D images.• 2D legacy features in real time 3D Cinerama?• Medical dimension images not flat screen distorted. 11
HIVE: Holographic Immersive Virtual EnvironmentExperts state MZTV patented open architecture is themost streamlined solution for auto dimension images—amplifies captured images with sharp depth focus.Experts evaluate MZTV patents as “strong”Patents cover whole laser projector architecture.Many company’s patents refer to Troyer’s patentsIntel, HP, Kodak, Epson, Coherent, Motorola --etc.Frustrated industry: no effective laser projectors inmarket. Many placed millions into laser projectordevelopment. To no avail--- they failed because theyhave the wrong architecture approach.Thus, the Industry is very nervous when it is declared:“Long sought “ Holy Grail” HIVE solution found” 12
MZTV Review: Real Time 3D Depth Solution• Spatial modulation of laser beam image creates the Z factor.• The Z factor laser beam projects natural depth in the image.• Z Depth causes automatic image separation in curved space.• The foreground image is separated from the background.• Facts: Humans see focused sharp images in dimensional space.• The true Hologram is always in sharp focus in dimensional space.• MZTV infinite focus transforms 2D images with depth (3D).• Flimsy logic : Attempting to place 3D images on 2D flat screens.• Curved screens provides depth (3D), streamlining the process.• Flat screens: X (vertical) and Y (horizontal). No Z depth factor.• Curved screens have added dimensionality for the Z depth factor.• Cinerama/ domes/ curved space provide added dimension (Z).• MZTV images on irregular surfaces hover with more dimension.• Arc lamp digital projectors use 2D flat screens: no Z infinite focus.• Arc lamp images: Out of Focus and Blurry on curved screens.
Break Through Realistic Images with Lasers Laser vector graphics – A mirror moves the laser beam.An outlined image is created. TRW created raster scanned video with RF modulation. Troyer streamlined laser projection: Innovative way tomodulate scanned laser beams, retaining the Z factorfor full color auto dimensional imaging.

3DTVEBUs head of emerging media David Wood said at IBC: “There is a degree of skepticism that we have enough technologybreakthroughs to make 3DTV work at the moment………. Thetechnology is seriously flawed in two main areas. The furthest point onthe screen needs to be fixed at 6.5cm - the same as the distancebetween human eyes. This can be achieved by projection in a cinemabut theres no way of knowing what size a viewers display will be.Secondly there is a conflict between the focus and the convergence ofour eyes when viewing 3D. These psycho-physical limitations can neverbe solved with a stereoscopic system….The real long-term future of3DTV - - is Object Wave recording, a subset of which is the hologram"

LUDDITESMillions spent by many who could not deliver laser projectors:Started from wrong premise; Used wrong design/ architecture.Troyer and team have the luxury of almost 20 years of R&D:• Based on the basic TRW war room laser projector• Accomplished much: limited resources/severe interference1993/1994 : Had 7 pre-orders from studio theme parks for upgraded TRWprojector. Instead of IMAX film they wanted Metatron (digital, interactive,filmic quality, real time dome adjustment). Get rid of costly film prints andtech support (not user friendly). Disney wanted to replace Captain EO withdome train ride. Wasserstein (preferred stock holders purchased IMAX- goingfor IPO) --- stopped us through questionable methods.2003: 11 JVC projectors stolen (never recovered). Metatron Clients waiting:Famous Players (8), 46 European Theaters; Williams Air Force—Raytheon,Griffith Park Planetarium (1), Others-- Universal City Walk Dome, etc.Patented MZTV Suppressed by Modern Luddites
Modern Luddites Have Attempted To Squash MetaZtron Visionhttp://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article.cfm?articleid=2035#Kirsner’s discusses how main industry players fear that newtechnology will upset the (very profitable) apple cart -- . We understandwhen George Lucas states: “innovators try to introduce a new idea to the industry ----. Instead of being thrown a ticker- tape parade, theyre often met with hostility or indifference. Sometimes, the status quo defeats the innovative concept, or at least “delays in the introduction.”

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.
