REDLANDS, CA., August 22, 2007 -- Virtual Images Unlimited, a division of IGH Solutions from Minnesota, today announced that it has acquired the large format lenticular manufacturing assets of Dynamic Images.
The equipment purchased, which utilizes high-resolution photographic techniques to produce large-format lenticular in single-panel sizes up to 4 feet by 8 feet, was originally developed by Kodak. The technology produces incredible 3D and animated effects. The former Dynamic Images purchased the technology from Kodak in 2001.
The items purchased will allow VIU to continue selling movie standees, posters, and bus shelters into the entertainment industry and other key markets. VIU will locate the equipment at its parent company's facility in Minnesota, which is ISO 9001:2000 certified, and will oversee production and quality standards.
"This acquisition will further establish VIU as the industry leader of lenticular, providing brand marketers with high-quality products that resonate with consumers," Vice President of Sales Dave Corey commented. Corey continued by stating "lenticular has been proven to have five times the 'stopping power', and two times the 'staying power' of conventional advertising media."
