Magnetic 3D Unveils Next-Generation Media Engine At Avnet’s Global Solutions Center
NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 10, 2012
Magnetic 3D, the global leader in autostereoscopic “glasses-free” 3D displays and digital signage solutions, unveiled its next-generation media engine yesterday at the Avnet Global Solutions Center in Chandler, Arizona. Magnetic 3D’s glasses-free 3D was one of fifteen premium digital signage solutions showcased at an open house to celebrate Avnet’s unveiling of a new Digital Signage Video Tour at its state-of-the-art Global Solutions Center. The event included tours of the facility, live demonstrations of suppliers’ solutions, and a virtual ribbon-cutting ceremony by Avnet CEO, Rick Hamada.
“Our unique glasses-free 3D solution is achieved through the combination of our industrial display with integrated Enabl3D™ lens technology, a powerful media engine, proprietary software, and award-winning content,” said Michael Dorin, Magnetic 3D’s Vice President of Business Development and Operations. “These elements all come together to astound audiences with the impressive illusion of 3D on an otherwise flat display.”
Magnetic 3D’s next-generation media engine is a full-featured player based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge Chipset and is specifically designed for commercial applications including digital signage, QSR, display walls, large venues and stadiums, education, medical, and hospitality. It boasts an all metal chassis and small form factor making it an ideal companion to any Magnetic 3D display. The unit runs on Microsoft Windows Embedded POSReady7, an operating system optimized for Point of Service solutions with built-in point-of-sale functionality. In partnership with Avnet, the unit was also configured with an advanced installation of Windows Embedded Device Manager allowing for even easier discovery, deployment, and manageability across remote networks.
"We are very excited to demonstrate our glasses-free 3D solution as part of Avnet’s Brilliant Digital Signage Event," said Thomas Zerega, Founder and CEO of Magnetic 3D. “It is a privilege to be included among the industry’s technology thought leaders.”
Further to the unveiling, Magnetic 3D’s glasses-free digital signage solution will remain permanently installed at the Avnet Global Solutions Center Showcase.
