SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — IO2 Technology announced today the release of the Heliodisplay M2, its revolutionary second-generation Heliodisplay(tm) free-space display. Like the first-generation Heliodisplay M1, the Heliodisplay M2 displays high-resolution, full-color video in thin air, without a physical screen. The M2 features a screen area 87% larger than that of the M1, and boasts many other improvements allowing for superior images.

“Market reaction to the first-generation system has been extremely positive, and based on our evolving advancements, the M2 is the next step in our product line,” said Chad Dyner, the inventor of the technology used in the Helio. With the M2, the Heliodisplay extends its usefulness to the marketing, retail, and trade-show industries.

“Our customers have been excited about getting a screen area that’s almost double in size from the last version,” said IO2 Technology operational manager Jay Fields. With its new design, the M2 can be installed under a table, to have video suddenly appear in front of the viewer floating in the air.

“There is nothing like this from any other company,” said Kenneth Siber, a London-based technology consultant whose company, Betaminds UK, provides Heliodisplay-based solutions to its customers. “The interactive model, the M2i, plugs into a USB port and functions as a nonphysical touchscreen. That has been popular with many of our clients,” Siber continued.

The Heliodisplay has been deployed successfully by corporate, government, and individual customers in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. IO2 Enterprise division, offers custom-built high-end display solutions based on the Heliodisplay technology.
