IGT launches PureDepth machines

12 June 2008

REDWOOD SHORES, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- PureDepth, Inc. (OTC: PDEP) a global leader in next-generation display technologies and the pioneer of Multi-Layer Display (MLDTM) technology, today announced the first commercial implementation of its technology by longtime partner IGT, a global company specializing in the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and sales of computerized gaming machines and systems products.

IGT today announced the market launch of its REELdepth™ family of games, which are powered by PureDepth technology. The initial game rollout includes nearly 70 of IGT's familiar, top-performing classics, as well as several new AVP® (Advanced Video Platform) themes. In the fall, IGT intends to release the long-awaited Indiana Jones™ and the Last Crusade™ MegaJackpots® Slot, which debuted at the 2007 Global Gaming Expo (G2E).

"This is a very significant day for PureDepth, since we believe it underscores the commercial viability of PureDepth's MLD technology and demonstrates that MLD technology can be deployed by partners seeking to significantly enhance existing products or drive the rollout of new, exciting applications," said Jonathan McCaman, President of PureDepth.

The integration of MLD technology into IGT's product line yields a high-quality gaming experience, but also drives significant operator efficiencies. Because game and reel configuration are now dictated by players from their seats, operators who invest in REELdepth™ games no longer have to budget to change glass, change reel strips, or physically relocate and remove machines on the floor. REELdepth™ games have virtual reels that mimic the look and vibration of their mechanical counterparts, so traditional slot players are expected to feel comfortable playing them.

"It's nice to be able to give operators something they can't find anywhere else in the industry," said Ron Rivera, IGT Vice President of North American Sales. "Because we're the only gaming machine manufacturer offering this flexibility, our sales department receives calls regularly from slot directors wanting REELdepth™ games on their floors."

PureDepth believes that the launch by IGT is a successful milestone in an ongoing partnership between the two companies. Since early 2007, PureDepth's technical staff has worked in close collaboration with IGT's development team on hardware design, manufacturing support, and software development to ensure a successful product introduction. "IGT's rollout of their REELdepth™ family also underscores the tremendous partnership between the two companies, and our ability to work closely with licensees to ensure the successful execution of their product development and launch goals," concluded Mr. McCaman.
