Digital signage and interactive solutions developer and leading electronics manufacturer to partner at technology, digital marketing and retail event
MONTREAL, March 3, 2017 /CNW/ - iGotcha Media, an interactive agency specialized in delivering turnkey digital signage and interactive solutions, today announced that it will exhibit with long-standing partner LG Electronics Inc. Canada, a global leader in electronics, information and communications products, at the upcoming DX3 conference, Canada's leading technology, digital marketing and retail event.
iGotcha Media will showcase two innovative applications, incorporating LG Electronics Inc. Canada monitors:
Cirque du Soleil Luzia application
An immersive 60-second augmented reality (AR) experience. An interactive game where players become Luzia characters. Using a Microsoft Kinect motion sensor, a camera and real time tracking, players wear 3D masks to enter the world of Luzia. This application runs on a video wall comprising 2 x 2 LG 55VM5B-B TVs with borderless design and a 0.9 mm even panel bezel that enables an immersive and seamless viewing experience.
Wearing a virtual reality (VR) headset, users are immersed into a virtual living room. They may then customize the ideal fireplace of their choice. By helping customers visualize a product, this type of application enhances and facilitates the shopping experience while shortening the sales cycle. This is an example of how VR may be leveraged to promote a multitude of consumer products. Developed in conjunction with Manu Marketing, this application runs on an LG 55-inch monitor.
"We are pleased to be attending DX3 with iGotcha Media for a second consecutive year," says Scott Thomas, Vice President, B2B, LG Electronics Inc. Canada. "The iGotcha team has consistently developed remarkable applications that harness the incredible power of AR, VR and other innovative technologies. The sophistication and complexity of these applications offers an exceptional platform to demonstrate the full potential of our latest range of monitors."
"LG is a valued partner," continues Greg Adelstein, President, iGotcha Media. "We are pleased to be demonstrating some of the latest AR and VR applications at DX3. As a provider of turnkey solutions, we appreciate the critical importance of integrating the finest quality monitors into our applications. For this reason, we are proud to be working with LG."
DX3 will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, March 8th and 9th. iGotcha Media will be in booth #400. For more information, please visit https://dx3canada.com/.
