Chris Yewdall, Chief Executive said:

“2010 was a key year in our development as the number of units of TVs and PCs shipped with
our 2D to 3D conversion solutions jumped from 100,000 to over 2.5 million. TriDef 3D is now at
the heart of a growing number of 3D products from brand name companies.

“We have maintained the momentum in 2011 and are rapidly adding new licensees, in particular
for our TriDef PC software solutions, as evidenced by our recent agreements with the leading
PC/monitor companies of LG Electronics, Samsung and a leading chip manufacturer. We are also
seeing opportunities in the mobile device market driven by our recently completed TriDef 3D
Mobile Android™ software. We expect to secure additional OEM design wins in this market in
the near future.

“Our focus remains firmly on developing and delivering continued growth in the high margin,
recurring, royalty business through the licensing of our technologies in the TV, PC and mobile
consumer markets.”
