PureDepth develops, licenses and supports its real-depth visual display technology through various OEMs and developers. The company today announced Yutaka (Taka) Nagata will serve as the company’s vice president and general manager in its Tokyo, Japan, office. With 40 years experience in the electronics industry, Nagata will lead PureDepth’s expansion efforts in the Japanese market.

“I’m very excited to be joining PureDepth at a time when the 3-D market is about to explode,” Nagata stated in the press release. “There are incredible opportunities to use PureDepth technology in additional gaming applications, mobile phones, and public information displays to name a few of our priority targets. In difficult economic times, it is more important than ever for manufacturers to distinguish themselves in the marketplace. PureDepth’s technology helps them do that.”

PureDepth combines its patented Multi-Layer Display (MLD) technology with 3-D effects and color to generate a lifelike view of games, data, images, video and other digital content. The MLD technology consists of layers of display panels stacked in front of each other to create a single monitor that simulates depth and a clear picture, eliminating the need for special viewing glasses.

The company has secured a licensing agreement with Sanyo to make its MLD technology available throughout Japan, and is making plans to remain a competitive leader in the electronics industry.

Nagata will be responsible for raising brand awareness for PureDepth through the company’s new office in the Otemachi district of central Tokyo. Utilizing his experience in building and expanding electronics brands, Nagata will work with existing and new customers to maximize and enhance PureDepth’s technology.

“As we implement our aggressive growth strategy and introduce significant advances in our patented technologies, Pure Depth is very pleased to have a strong leader like Taka-san leading the way in Japan,” Andy Wood, CEO of Pure Depth stated.
