Stampede, a value-added distributor of pro AV solutions, has been named the exclusive North and South American distributor for isiQiri's Q-Screen. Q-Screen is a patented technology that transforms any standard front-projection screen into an interactive, multiuser, multitouch screen. At InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Fla., Stampede (booth 2575) will demonstrate isiQiri's Q-Screen in a virtual shooting gallery application using a massive 12-foot screen.
Q-Screen is a light-conductive foil system which, when added to the rear side of front projection systems, creates an interactive surface. The Q-Screen interactivity is controlled using up to four discrete laser-based Q-pointer devices, bringing true multiuser, multipoint interaction to standard screens. Company officials say Q-Screen is entirely modular and can therefore be built to accommodate anything from 6-foot diagonal to cinema-scale screens. Because of its unique properties, the Q-foil modules can also accommodate curved or large dome projection surfaces.
"It's a truly unique innovation," says Bob Senior, isiQiri's president, in a statement. "It will open new avenues of interactivity and reinvigorate the projection industry bringing new market opportunities and leveraging the growing content base of multiuser, multitouch material. We are also very excited about our partnership with Stampede, who has the reputation, reach, and professionalism to help us bring this unique new product to market."
"The Q-Screen Shooting Gallery will be the star attraction of our InfoComm booth," said Kevin Kelly, Stampede president and COO, in a statement. "Once they see it in action, our dealers are going to enthusiastically embrace this technology. The Q-Screen gives dealers a sales opportunity for customers who were previously reluctant to completely change over to a new interactive system. With Q-Screen, dealers can offer a quick, easy, and affordable upgrade to state-of-the-art technology."
