GestureTek and Red Rock Media Win Digital Signage Interactive Technology Award At Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas.

Company’s multi-touch surface computing table for Australia’s Eureka Tower selected as most innovative interactive display solution in a public space.

multi - touch surface computing installationLAS VEGAS, NEVADA, February 28, 2008 – GestureTek Inc., inventor and world leader in gesture-controlled interactive presentation, information and entertainment systems, announced today that it has won a 2008 Digital Signage Interactive Technology Award for the most innovative digital signage solution in a public space. The Award was presented on February 27th at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.

GestureTek and its client, Red Rock Media, won the award for a one-of-a-kind multi-touch surface computing table that was installed at the Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Australia.  This tourist attraction was billed as the world’s largest multi-touch surface computing table at the time of its installation.

Called Serendipity, the six-meter-long table features an interactive touch-surface that reveals sixty different short stories exploring the mythological, historical, cultural and contemporary highlights of Melbourne. Multi-touch functionality allows several users, or one person using two hands, to simultaneously access information about their key areas of interest, by touching a variety of icons on the table’s huge display area.  The moving stream of stories materializes in a serendipitous fashion along sections of the table, which coalesce when touched to form an information window containing text, images, film and animation. 

GestureTek’s interactive multi-touch technology can be delivered on virtually any surface, in any shape or size, such as a table, bar top, counter or freestanding panel.  These interactive surface systems give people ‘Minority Report-style’ interaction capability.  They simply press, rotate and drag their hands along a surface to control dynamic multi-media content, access information, play games, create special effects, manipulate art and photographs and view advertising.  More than 50 breathtaking special effects and applications from the GestureFX® library come pre-programmed with interactive surface solutions.  The system owner can use these applications ‘as is’, or employ them to create their own custom content.
.
Using specialized camera technology and video gesture control software that was patented long before the movie Minority Report was even released, GestureTek has been delivering custom interactive tables for several years, including a dynamic interactive map and way-finding system for  Samsung in New York’s Time Warner Building and an engaging interactive entertainment table for Alice Fazooli's restaurant in Toronto.
GestureTek’s multi-touch technology has limitless applications for digital signage, corporate board rooms, showrooms, presentation centers, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions, tradeshows, advertising venues, and other public spaces where kiosk-style multimedia is desired.  The military has even worked with GestureTek to find ways to integrate this exciting technology into their facilities.
Tens of millions of visitors have experienced the 4,000-plus GestureTek installations all over the world in nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, retail locations, digital signage solutions and in other public spaces. The company’s various solutions for point and control, responsive media, immersive gaming experiences and multi-touch surface computing allow people to control and interact with dynamic multi-media content; access information within interactive displays and even immerse themselves in a 3-D virtual world – without ever having to wear, hold or touch anything special.
