Actis Tech Unveils Gesture Control Solutions for India Inc

Actis Technologies, pioneers in designing and building communication and collaboration technologies, has unveiled gesture control solutions for corporate India. Gesture control is a trending technology that interprets human gestures via mathematical algorithms into commands and functions. The technology which is at a nascent stage worldwide, will be finding its way into Indian boardrooms via the Actis initiative. It will enable gestures to move slides in a presentation, control a video walls in a network operations centre (NOC), operate multiple screens in a security surveillance system, browse through screens at a lobby or digital cafeteria and maneuver screens at a Stock exchange. Actis is employing technologies like Kinect (Microsoft) to provide the solutions and are already in the process of completing some maiden installations.
Says Abhimanyu Gupta, Director - Actis Technologies, “It is widely anticipated that gesture controls will eventually replace the touch screen interface as we know it today. The technology already has its presence in the gaming industry, but the wide possibilities of gesture control commercially are still untapped. Indian businesses are rapidly adopting new technologies and we see huge potential for the technology in India especially in operations that deal with huge amount of data like software companies, stock exchanges, educational institutes, research laboratories, biotech firms, news & media house, security companies, etc.”

The technology as the name suggests is not only user friendly but also cost effective. Gestures can originate from any bodily motion or state but commonly originate from the face or hand. Devices using gesture control does not require any hardware inputs like a mouse or a keyboard and work with great efficiency. The solutions provided by Actis promises low latency rate, high flexibility and customization.
Adds Abhimanyu Gupta, Director - Actis Technologies, “Our presence in technologies like video-conferencing, unified communications, interactive training solutions, security surveillance systems among others give us an edge in providing the gesture control solutions. We have received a tremendous response from our clients (including MNCs, software giants) where installations are currently underway, making it one of the first implementations of the technology in India Inc.”
