New York-based Magnetic 3D, leader in glasses-free 3D display and 3D digital signage solutions, is at InfoComm, showcasing a new autostereoscopic 3D content delivery application with UCView Media Inc., Chatsworth, California-based provider of digital signage solutions worldwide.
Magnetic 3D has also signed reseller agreements with Peerless Mounts, an Aurora, Illinois-based leader in audiovisual mounting solutions, as well as a distributor agreement with Stampede, Amherst, N.Y.-based distributor of presentation equipment including LCD/DLP projectors and flat panel displays.
Magnetic 3D is showcasing its autostereoscopic 3D screens and software in a number of partner booths at InfoComm, including Stampede booth C4763; Planar Systems Inc., booth C5658; Peerless Mounts booth C5842; and UCView booth N1868.
In addition, Tom Zerega, Magnetic 3D’s CEO, and Eric Angello, executive officer and vice-president of marketing and creative, will give a seminar on how to ‘Capitalize on Glasses Free 3D’ on Thursday, June 10, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in room N231.
“From distributors and resellers to hardware and software providers, 3D is transforming the digital signage and Pro AV marketplace just as it has revolutionized the media and entertainment business in theatres,” says Zerega. “Working with industry leading partners on digital signage platform integration is the key driver of growth within the glasses-free 3D industry and will greatly accelerate the adoption curve of auto-stereoscopic technology.”
Magnetic 3D and UCView will provide a powerful 2D and 3D content management tool for network operators that rely on UCView’s robust software platform. UCView Media offers world-class digital signage application servers and content management software that is reliable, simple to use and cost-effective to operate. The company is focused on enabling the business convergence of digital display owners, advertisers and consumers.
Michele Cohen, UCView vice-president of business development, says, “Partnering with Magnetic 3D to integrate next-generation glasses-free 3D displays and 3D functionality with our content management platform aligned perfectly with our commitment of bringing the state-of-the-art to our clients.”
Through joining the Magnetic 3D network, Stampede and Peerless will be able to offer the entire Magnetic 3D product line including all hardware, software, content and premium consulting services. Magnetic 3D’s products include the Company’s industry-leading glasses-free 3D displays featuring Enabl3D Technology ranging from 22″ to 57″, logistics support, and pre/post sales support in the glasses-free 3D display market. To support the screens once installed, Stampede and Peerless can also offer Magnetic 3D’s turnkey software solutions for 3D content production, playback and networking with the E3D Creative Suite and FuzionCast content management software.
Peerless Industries, Inc., has been a leader in the audiovisual mounting industry for more than 40 years. The Company offers a comprehensive line of video and audio mounts and installation accessories for residential and commercial markets. It will now, through the agreement with Magnetic 3D, also produce customized mounts for Magnetic 3D’s glasses-free 3D screens.
Stampede provides a complete range of brand name presentation equipment to a variety of audio/visual, computer, and home theater resellers and integrators in the United States, Canada and Latin America. Magnetic 3D will work with Stampede to deepen relationships within the ProAV community through the new partnership and bring glasses-free 3D technology to their active reseller base.
