Located in the heart of Epcot , INNOVENTIONS is a unique 100,00 square foot interactive playground of hands-on exhibits where visitors from around the world discover how science and
technology can simplify and enhance their lives today and in the future.
The XaviXGamesâ„¢ leverage a first-of-its-kind technology created by SSD Company Limited, which combines leading-edge human interface sensors, including optical sensor and infra-red, to allow any television to respond directly to a userâ€™s actions.
Opened at INNOVENTIONS in March 2005, the new 1,135 square-foot exhibit will be comprised of interactive stations equipped with SIM2â€™s unique RTX displays and proprietary XaviXPORTâ„¢
consoles. These consoles house individual game cartridges to enable system play. Using realistic wireless game controllers that have the feel and functionality of true sports equipment, players may bowl a strike, participate in a home run derby or hit a pitch to send an opponent running.
The Grand Cinema RTX is based on DarkChip2â„¢ technology by Texas Instruments, boasting a resolution of 1280x720 pixels for true high definition imaging. The RTX line features three custom-made components: first, a high resolution projection lens for reduced cabinet depth; second, a specific Fresnel lens to match the DMD chip resolution and third, a sealed light engine for super-high
contrast and black level. The RTXâ€™s elegant cabinet is immediately recognizable due to its sophisticated shapes and prestigious materials, which make it a true masterpiece by the award-winning Italian desiner Giorgio Revoldini.
â€œHome Theater is evolving,â€ says Giorgio Corazza, President of SIM2 USA, Inc. â€œConsumers are demanding a cinematic experience in a variety of rooms in the house and are not willing to sacrifice picture-quality. We created the Grand Cinema RTX to meet the needs of those who demand cutting-edge technology as well as breathtaking design.â€ continues Mr. Corazza â€œFor this reason we
are very excited to have our product in this new INNOVENTIONS at EpcotÂ® exhibit, where the exposure of the RTX and its picture quality to the numerous amount of yearly visitors is extensiveâ€.
