JEA Technologies and Digital Pulse have signed a strategic agreement to offer Magnetic 3D's comprehensive glasses-free 3D digital signage solution covering hardware supply, installation and support through to content development.
This is the first such agreement in Australia for this new technology and offers a nationwide solution for companies considering glasses-free 3D displays for their digital signage networks, according to a joint release from JEA and Digital Pulse. JEA Technologies recently became the Australian and New Zealand distributor for Magentic 3D's displays with Enabl3D technology.
"We did a huge amount of research into the various display technologies available for 3D digital signage. We found that displays with lenticular lenses were far superior to those with parallax barrier," said Chris Mitrokas, business development manager for JEA Technologies. "Of the lenticular displays we saw, Magnetic3D Enabl3D displays were clear leaders in image and build quality." Magnetic3D had already been working closely with Digital Pulse's content creation team to help them become the first Magnetic3D-certified content provider in Australia.
"Digital Pulse and JEA Technologies' expertise is mutually beneficial and has the potential to bring tremendous benefit to companies in the region who are considering 3D signage," Magnetic3D CEO Thomas Zerega said. "We are very excited that our industry-leading technology will now be fully supported in the Asia Pacific region. It will also provide existing digital signage companies in Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to explore new business opportunities through our Value Added Resellers program with JEA Technologies." There has been a tremendous surge in inquries from clients wishing to develop 3D stereo content since the release of the movie 'Avatar,' said Brett Heil, managing director of Digital Pulse. Major corporations are now actively looking to produce 3D content for internal and external communications. The new agreement includes support for the entire Magnetic 3D product line, which consists of 3D display technology ranging in size from 22- to 55-inches, in addition to Magnetic 3D's turnkey software solutions for 3D content production, playback and networking with the E3D Creative Suite and FuzionCast content management software.
