GestureTek Showcases New Products and Product Upgrades For AV Systems Integrators at InfoComm 2009

Jun 08 2009


Evolutions in GestureTek’s 3D Visualization, Multi-Touch, Immersion and ‘Plug and Play’ Portable Interactive Display Among the New Featured Technologies

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, June 8, 2009 – GestureTek Inc., inventor and multiple patent holder in camera-enabled gesture recognition technology for display, presentation and entertainment systems, today announced several new products and product upgrades aimed at the systems integration market. These cutting-edge products reflect some of the most advanced gesture control applications in the market, including 3D depth sensing, multi-touch, immersion and portable interactivity. The technologies will be displayed at Infocomm 09 at the Orange County Convention Centre from June 17 to19, Booth 2178.

The CUBE™ ‘Plug and Play’ Interactive Display

The CUBE, GestureTek’s new portable interactive floor display system, provides a rich interactive multimedia environment to project advertising and promotional content at any time and in any location, regardless of lighting conditions or space constraints. The Cube now comes with more than 70 eye-catching games and special effects applications.  Other features include the ability for integrators to make their own changes to content, such as logos or background graphics, with a simple press of a button. This capability eliminates the need for custom application development support.  Hardware refinements include the use of a high-end 2700 lumens projector with an ultra short throw lens, for a brilliant image on the floor in any lighting condition. Retailers and other organizations such as Old Navy, Sears, IBM, American Family Insurance, Cineviz, Diageo and others have been attracted to the Cube because it provides all the promotional benefits of a traditional large-scale interactive digital signage system without the financial and technical commitment of having to install the system in the ceiling.  More on The Cube at http://www.gesturetek.com/cube/introduction.php .

New Networking and User Metrics Capabilities For ScreenXtreme®

GestureTek’s ScreenXtreme immersive, interactive advertising and digital signage technology tracks people’s movements and puts their real-time video image onscreen into an interactive digital environment or advertisement.  People interact with the onscreen content and make changes to the graphics and special effects by moving their hands and body. ScreenXtreme has been newly equipped with a customized network monitoring, content management and advertising metric system. The system allows groups of screens to be organized and managed remotely, providing operational status as well as allowing for content updates. An integrated face tracker provides advertising metrics including “number of views” and “duration per view”. The amount of interaction per advertisement is captured as an additional metric.

Also new, the same great ScreenXtreme interactive and immersive functionality that is used on digital signs and advertising networks is also now widely used by both retailers and advertisers on outdoor storefront windows. These same monitoring and networking features are also being integrated into GestureTek’s GestureFX System and the plug and play interactive projection floor system, the Cube.

“We’re continually improving ScreenXtreme to meet the requirements of the advertising and marketing community,” said Vincent John Vincent.  “User metrics and networking capability are invaluable for advertising campaigns where cost justification and sales results are critical.”  More on ScreenXtreme at http://www.gesturetek.com/screenxtreme/introduction.php .

New 3D Depth Sensing Technology for Interactive Displays

Infocomm attendees will have the opportunity to interact with GestureTek’s new 3D tracking technology, which uses a depth camera and video gesture control software to enable users to control interactive displays and other consumer devices with simple hand gestures and poses instead of button presses. Other 3D visualization applications include full-body avatar control, two-handed and multi-touch control, 360º navigation control and depth tracking digital signage that detects the movement of passers-by and displays advertising messages that follow them as they walk.  More on GestureTek’s 3D tracking and control at http://www.gesturetek.com/3ddepth/introduction.php .

Illuminate™ Vertical Multi-Touch and Windows 7 Compliance Now Available

GestureTek’s Illuminate multi-touch/multi-point tables now come turnkey with a choice of three screen sizes (30”, 40” and 55”) giving systems integrators more flexibility than ever to choose a size-appropriate multi-touch display that adheres to the parameters of their clients’ display space. Along with delivering the same award-winning multi-touch technology into custom-sized tables, GestureTek also now offers multi-touch on vertical surfaces such as freestanding plexiglas or glass screens, store windows, etc.  Optional object recognition and finger tracking is available as required.

GestureTek also announced today that it has created its Illuminate multi-touch/multi-point technology to be Windows 7 compliant, ready for Window 7-based application when the operating system is released in October 2009.
