Magnetic 3D and Tatung Company of the Americas today announced an exclusive partnership to develop turn-key, interactive and immersive glasses-free 3D display solutions for the casino gaming market.
New York (PRWEB) November 17, 2009 — Magnetic 3D and Tatung Company of the Americas today announced an exclusive partnership to develop turn-key, interactive and immersive glasses-free 3D display solutions for the casino gaming market. These solutions will allow casino game manufacturers to develop new games from the ground up and/or up-date their current line-up of popular games to incorporate Magnetic 3D`s revolutionary “Enabl3D” format , allowing end-users the opportunity to experience 3D content without the use of 3D eyewear.
Magnetic 3D’s Enabl3D technology offers game developers new revenue streams, and the opportunity to create entirely new 3D game concepts and 3D gaming experiences, while the technology is backwards compatible to support 2D games and content.
Magnetic 3D also announced its selection of Tatung as its US-based integration and engineering partner. Tatung will deliver an array of hardware solutions, from 3D gaming to digital signage, from its headquarters in Long Beach, CA.
"Working with best-of-breed partners has always been our mantra and Tatung is nothing short of the global leader in the electronics manufacturing industry," said Tom Zerega, co-Founder & CEO of Magnetic 3D. "Having Tatung’s engineering and production capabilities behind Magnetic 3D will allow us to focus on our core competencies – – such as product development, marketing and support – – and, as a result, allow us to deliver turn-key, end-to-end 3D solutions globally through various distribution channels en masse."
The companies will jointly unveil their debut glasses-free 3D display technology for slot machine gaming at G2E’s Global Gaming Expo. The showcase will include Magnetic 3D’s new Envolv™ product line, 22" 3D touch monitors that transform 2D slot machines into interactive 3D gaming experiences (3D integration required). Magnetic 3D will be on-site to demonstrate its technology’s 2D/3D seamless and side by side playback features and backwards compatibility with legacy 2D games.
The event will take place from November 17th-19th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The 3D displays and Enabl3D technologies will be available for viewing in Booth 3010.
"We are very excited to announce our partnership with Magnetic 3D and proliferating their E3D technology in the gaming market," said Edward Chen Executive Vice President at Tatung. "We have already received very positive feedback from several gaming customers as well as orders on the overall solution. This points directly to the superior image quality of E3D Technology over other technologies, and the turn-key application support provided by the Magnetic 3D software integration team."
As 3D blockbusters continue to boost box offices sales, attract new audiences, and garner attention for the 3D medium, Magnetic 3D and Tatung believe that 3D slot games will translate into great rewards for casino gaming manufacturers.
