MADGIX introduces a solution to the market that is easy to install and plug into existing hard and software of projection systems and motion seat providers. The interactive MADGIX ScreenPLAY Kit contains key elements for smooth integration and operation, accommodating a large number of shooting players simultaneously. Without modifying the screen or wiring it up, interactivity experiences can be offered to large audiences at any venue of choice through a smart camera-based detection system.
Thibaut De Lestré, Managing Director of MADGIX explains: “For the first time a multi-user interaction kit is available as an open architecture. The MADGIX ScreenPLAY Kit contains parallel independent hardware for playback and shooting detection, designed for seamless integration within existing 4D theaters and cinemas. We offer a flexible licensing system that packages the game license together with the wireless interactive devices, allowing for a broader variety in games and theming. We are very excited about the great potential this new solution offers to the various markets.”
