Year after year, the Audio Visual marketplace enthusiastically embraces the InfoComm tradeshow to make their purchasing choices, network with specialists and enhance their skills. The 2010 InfoComm - Las Vegas tradeshow provided a terrific platform for this industry interaction with over 900 exhibitors and 300 educational seminars. The thousands of Audio Visual (AV) professionals that converged for the tradeshow embodied innovation, showcasing AV technologies that pushed the boundaries of how users interact with conventional products.
Design 1st staff enjoyed the excitement at InfoComm 2010, taking the opportunity to checkout new cutting-edge technologies and follow up with former clients. These included self financed Ottawa agents and inventors along with startups and large international enterprises.
GestureTek and Christie Digital were two clients that pleased the crowd with interactive demonstrations featuring new motion, touch and visual technologies. GestureTek’s booth featured the GestTable™, a 42" LCD multi-touch surface computing solution, along with the new GestDisplay™, a 70" turnkey freestanding multi-touch unit. While Christie Digital presented three interactive gaming and touch screen demonstrations designed to deliver powerful audience engagement for broadcast, gaming, entertainment and signage applications.
"Our hardware innovations nicely compliment our deep insight into all forms of advanced display and digital signage applications, particularly multi-touch, immersion, 3D vision, mobile device interactivity, object recognition, motion and object tracking, and even face tracking," says Vincent John Vincent, Co-Founder and President of GestureTek.
GestureTek’s award-winning interactive multi-touch surface computing technology delivered quite the “wow” factor through giving ‘Minority Report-style’ computer interactivity to tables, counters and panels. With multi-touch displays, users simply point their fingers immediately above (or directly on) the surface, then make rotating or dragging motions to control dynamic multi-media content, access product information, view advertising, play games, create special effects or manipulate images.
“At Christie, our innovations are driven by a constant focus on providing exceptional image quality – to entertain, engage and embrace the world through visual communication.” said Jack Kline, president and chief operating officer, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc.
Christie is consistently setting standards by being the first to market some of the world’s most advanced projectors and complete system displays. Christie’s legacy carried on at the InfoComm 2010 tradeshow, with the biggest attention grabber being the visual Microtiles display system. Microtiles is the new digital canvas, which has been used in a variety of distinctive settings including Expo 2010 Shanghai, national television broadcasts and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The MicroTiles feature jaw dropping, in-your-face resolution for up-close distant viewing, brilliant colors, true blacks and a consistent stable image.
