3-D Projection  

Christie introduced the Christie Mirage 4K25 projector for 3-D applications for advanced visualization in automotive, location-based entertainment, government, military, oil and gas, and more. The projector offers 1.2 gigapixels per second, floating point architecture, and full 4096 x 2160 resolution at 120 Hz for 3-D. The projector ranges in brightness from 10,000 to 25,000 lumens, has a variety of input options including DisplayPort, HDMI and HD-SDI, and a built-in tool for curved screens. It comes with a detachable LCD control module. Standard or long-range emitters, as well as active and passive 3-D eyewear are optional.

Touch Display  

U-Pointer from BALD Technologies is a tool that converts a projected image or plasma into an interactive workstation. The U-Pointer Accessory allows any U-Pointer model to be added to an existing flat panel display, thus transforming it into an interactive touch display. The device’s arm creates a semi-permanent setup to interact directly with the desktop on users’ flat panel display — all without the expense of replacing the older display with a new interactive touch display. The U-Pointer can be mounted vertically or horizontally to adapt to users’ needs. Installation and position fine-tuning are made simple with thumb knobs — no tools required. The cable management system is designed for easy cable routing and clean installation.

The GammaTech Durabook TA10 Tablet can withstand drops from 5 feet onto 2-inch plywood set over concrete, and meets military standards for shock, dust/spill and salt/fog resistance. The tablet contains an Intel Ivy Bridge i5-3427U processor and a 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB m-SATA solid state drive. A 2.5-inch HDD provides storage sizes of 320 GB, 500 GB or 750 GB. The 10.4-inch XGA (1024 x 768) LCD with resistive multi-touch panel (with the option for a sunlight-readable screen). There’s a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera and an optional rear-facing 5 megapixel auto-focus camera.
