Ingram Micro and Exceptional 3D have teamed to bring auto-stereoscopic 3D digital signage solutions to resellers across the U.S.
Santa Ana, CA – September 15, 2011 – Exceptional 3D today announced a new relationship with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor. Under the terms of the U.S. agreement, the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Business Unit (BU) will collaborate with Exceptional 3D to bring its patented glasses-free 3D display technology to Ingram Micro’s growing base of IT resellers focused on the digital signage market.
The formation of this relationship enables Ingram Micro resellers to offer a complete digital signage solution that supports both no-glasses 3D and 2D digital signage capabilities.
This announcement follows Exceptional 3D’s recent news of entering into a partnership with X2O Media, which will offer the first complete content management solution for glasses-free 3D networks that can also support playback of traditional 2D content. Now, digital signage resellers can offer Exceptional 3D’s patented auto-stereoscopic 3D display technology from a best-in-class distributor, which has been fully integrated with a top-notch content management tool. Resellers are able to supply a completely glasses-free 3D solution to any customer with a great deal of confidence, reliability and end-to-end support.
“Demand for glasses-free 3D digital signage solutions is on the rise and IT resellers specializing in digital signage solutions are in an opportune spot to capitalize on this upward buying trend,” says Kevin Prewett, vice president, vendor management, Ingram Micro U.S. “Exceptional 3D offers our mutual channel partners an innovative, glasses-free 3D technology at an exceptional price point. Exceptional 3D’s competitive go-to-market strategy aligns well with the dedicated support and targeted resources provided by our Digital Signage BU. We’re pleased to be Exceptional 3D’s first broad-based distribution partner.”
Exceptional 3D is quickly becoming the preferred choice for glasses-free 3D products and digital signage solutions. The company has taken a great amount of restraint off of the ability for mass adoption of the no-glasses 3D technology by offering extremely competitive pricing for a patented auto-stereoscopic 3D display technology and products that are second-to-none. “Resellers that already enjoy the conveniences of working with Ingram Micro to deliver digital signage solutions and services now have a cutting-edge, glasses-free 3D solution that will really strengthen their current offerings”, said Mike Egan, CEO from Exceptional3D.
“We’re extremely happy about working with Ingram Micro to bring resellers a resource which will allow them to offer our 3D solution to their customer base,” said Egan. “The [digital signage] market is growing bigger everyday and end-users are in need of a more effective solution to help their message have a noticeable bottom-line impact on audiences. Being that our 3D displays also playback 2D content, end users can choose a display that plays both 2D and 3D content,” continued Mr. Egan, “so now the question is, why buy a 2D display when you can have a glasses-free 3D display that also plays 2D content?” Mr. Egan finished by saying, “Exceptional 3D displays are a future-proof technology, and the future is now. By teaming with Ingram Micro, we are able to support and deliver what resellers needs to satisfy the appetite of decision makers who aim to be ahead of the curve and their competition.”
