NEC Utilizes Extreme UI Software Development Kit to Power Gesture-Controlled Video Mode
Herzlia, Israel November 08, 2012
Extreme Reality, developer of Extreme Motion and Extreme UI software, announced today its software development kit (SDK) has been licensed by NEC Personal Computers Ltd (NECPC). Extreme Reality's SDK application includes gesture control technology that brings a hands-free and gesture recognition experience for NEC's All-in-One PCs operating in TV mode.
The Extreme UI SDK provides a powerful software engine that identifies hand gestures using palm-tracking recognition, providing an alternative to the standard PC mouse. The engine follows exact coordinates of the user's palm location, movements and actions offering touch-less control for a unique 10-foot user interface. Extreme UI also includes a video recognition frame, which allows users to see the precise gestures that they are performing.
"Extreme Reality technology brings new and future capability to our VALUESTAR family, the most recent All-in-One PC line," said Hideaki Kato, Executive Director and Managing Executive Officer at NECPC. "Combining a world class user interface with hands free, gesture control brings tremendous opportunity for our customers."
Extreme Reality, also known as XTR3D, and NECPC embarked on the project earlier this year and worked in tandem to customize the software for a fall release. This is one of a number of partnerships Extreme Reality has announced in 2012.
"Our partnership with NECPC is a sign of our continued commitment to deliver the highest quality gesture control experience for the consumer electronics industry and its users," said Elad Dubzinski, CEO of Extreme Reality. "NECPC worked directly with our development team and its rigorous and severe product testing, both for logarithms and use cases, allowing us to improve our already powerful SDK for future manufacturing partners."
Extreme Reality's gesture control technology will be available on NECPC's VALUESTAR family line of All-in-One (AIO) PCs October 26th, 2012. For more information on Extreme Reality and their gesture control technology, visit http://www.xtr3d.com.
