Magnetic 3D, a provider of autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D digital signage solutions, today announced that its technology will be included at the second annualTEDxWallStreet not-for-profit conference, which will take place at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, Oct. 30.
"As a long-time admirer of TED, it is an honor to be providing a unique glasses-free 3D experience at TEDxWallStreet," Magnetic 3D COO Michael Dorin said in the announcement. "Our technology is ideal for use at events and embodies the convergence of fields on which TED was originally founded. With hundreds of TED events happening around the world each year, I hope this will be the start of a recurring intersection of TED and glasses-free 3D."
Magnetic 3D will provide multiple glasses-free 3D displays throughout the venue, as well as several pieces of custom-made content for the day-long event. The custom sequences created for the event feature glasses-free 3D animations of TEDx branding and logos of the event's various sponsors. In addition to having several glasses-free 3D displays in the main room and lounge at the event, Magnetic 3D displays will also be stationed on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange during the reception and ringing of the bell. A 2D simulcast of the talks will also be shown on Magnetic 3D's displays, according to the announcement.
"These are multidisciplinary TEDx Talks for the Wall Street community," said Jonathan Ende, CEO of BorrowersFirst and founder of the conference, in the announcement. "Last year's event introduced Wall Street to the global TEDx phenomenon; this year is shaping up to be even better. The event is by invitation only to some of the most passionate producers and brilliant thinkers in the Wall Street community. We're very grateful to our stellar lineup of speakers who are generously contributing their time and ideas to make this event impactful. Our goal is to spark deep discussion and debate among a diverse audience of thought leaders from the Wall Street community."
The theme of this year's conference is "Filling the Void" and will focus on social and economic voids as well as how to fill them. Notable TEDxWallStreet 2013 speakers include Gemma Godfrey, television broadcaster and quantum physicist; Brian David Johnson, chief futurist at Intel Corp.; George Whitesides, CEO and president of Virgin Atlantic; and Bob Woodruff, ABC News anchor.
"Focusing not just on technology, but also how technology plays a significant role in other facets of society, TEDxWallStreet is a perfect event for us to demonstrate how Magnetic 3D 'fills the void' by delivering a next-generation digital experience with glasses-free 3D," Tom Zerega, founder and CEO of Magnetic 3D, said in the announcement.
