GestureTek Launches Enhanced GestureFX Display System for Interactive Surfaces

Jul 15 2008


Company upgrades its industry leading technology for interactive projection and visual display systems

TORONTO, CANADA, July 15, 2008 – GestureTek Inc., inventor and world leader in gesture-driven interfaces for presentation and entertainment systems, today launched an enhanced version of the company’s GestureFX library of multimedia special effects applications for interactive display systems.  

GestureFX is a stunning interactive projection and visual display system for advertising and entertainment in public and corporate spaces. Using advanced camera technology and multi-patented body tracking software, the system intelligently responds to body movement in order to project dynamic interactive multimedia content, interactive advertising or games onto any surface of any size - including tables, floors, bars, counters, windows, screens and freestanding panels. 

The newest software release, GestureFX 1.5, delivers over 70 engaging non-branded applications & special effects that can be used right out of the box.  The system can be installed by GestureTek’s team or self-installed by the client.  Included with the system is a comprehensive manual with over 50 examples of applications and instructions on how to create them.  These instructions allow clients to develop, change or adapt their own multimedia content.  A console play list interface is also included, enabling clients to easily choose applications and change their sequence and duration with the click of a mouse.  Active X capabilities also let GestureFX run as a sub window within other multimedia and digital signage solutions. 

While the GestureFX graphic engine has always supported the addition of 3D and Flash applications, the Flash Software Development Kit (SDK) has been reduced in price with the release of GestureFX 1.5.  The new release also offers an additional SDK module for complete real-time game engine development, enabling complex animation, interaction and scoring.  Additionally, GestureFX now comes with built-in Edge Blending for multiple projector set-ups, eliminating the need for extra costly hardware.  When configured for use on a vertical screen surface, GestureFX 1.5 comes with 24 hour lens/iris support, to optimize performance in changing lighting conditions and on more challenging surfaces such as store windows.

“GestureTek has the most advanced solution in the market for gesture-controlled displays, signage and interactive surfaces, with thousands of client systems in operation around the world,” said Vincent John Vincent, President and Co-Founder of GestureTek Inc.  “The release of GestureFX 1.5 puts us even further ahead of the pack in the quality and usability of our interactive systems and special effects applications.”
