2008-07-15 07:00:00

Company upgrades its industry leading technology for interactive projection

                         and visual display systems



    TORONTO, July 15 /EMWPresswire/ -- 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."
