Getting Up-close and Candid with the Transformative Virtual Display of Po-Mo Inc

If the world is a stage, then the transformative displays of Po-Mo Inc, a cloud and IT startup from Winnipeg, Canada, has made it even more so. This is through their Po-Motion Interactive Software. It is an app that employs magical display technology to make events more interactive, not to say, glamorous.

Where Does the Cloud Figure In?

The company provides Motion Sensor that can work on a device of the user. This includes Windows XP and Mac and connects on X-Box Kinect. This means that each kind of display, ranging from gaming graphics to those of weddings, for those who do not want to create theirs, will be available as a production from the portal.

The company also offers wholesome displays for a given event, inclusive of the production itself, the equipment necessary, and finishes the rollercoaster with great staging.

There is also the ability to get a couple of sceneries in one order. This works when a client, say, a wedding planner, sends an email with the details of the scene that he or she wants to transform. It can feature artificial flowery display on the bridal path, which usually comes as reflections from a projector in a dark background.

There is also the chance for users to create their personal games using resources from either their own workshops or source them from the Po-Motion Inc’s cloud base. There is also an extra promotion for clients who want to go further with their display work: they can order for an ‘advanced’ icon that gives greater depth for the sensor.

Advertisement Feature

Po-Motion has already configured the Po-Motion Interactive Software to feature largely in marketing work. The target niches include wholesale and reseller businesses. The former is in its initial stages whereby restaurants and other customer points can get displays of their own choice, either custom-made or from those existing with the software. The reseller program, on the other hand, is yet to come up but Po-Motion is recommending clients to subscribe before it kick-starts. The premise of this new advertising feature is to have more than mere display icons: the company expects to introduce novel tools that can actually give a faithful account of the Return on Investment (ROI) chart of a business.

One drawback, however, is that one cannot insert a trademark or emblem on a display scenery that he or she has created, as yet. The company cites that it has not taken to the concept of attaching labels to the software.

Pricing

The only phrase that can describe the pricing plan of Po-Motion is that it is reasonable. For example, the content is available in the same premise of the cloud, in that one pays for use rather than the device. In a case where display kits or SDKs are quite dear to avail, it is possible to get software that can last and recreate scenes for ‘as little price’’ as possible, as the startup calls it. The following, however, are the particular pricing details of the different scenes one can seek to create:

Effects, which can include outlines cost between $3.30 and $4.47, while wedding and car scenes come for between $13.30 and $17.88 whereas the Motion Maker Scenes, including ripples, come for a maximum price of $50.66.

In denouement, it suffices to say that there are two computer-based versions to go for. The first one is the Po-Motion IR, which is best for the latest Windows with dual-core-processor and storage capacity of from 2 to 4 gigabytes. The Po-Motion classic is available for both personal computer and Mac with similar processing and storage power as the above version.

Thus, Po-Motion deserves a place among the North American cloud startups, as any other company, if for its transformative software alone. This is what allows brides to feel like they are actually walking in a garland-draped aisle when they only have a cobbled runway to walk in a physical sense. It is also what makes an amateur gaming developer learn how to create sceneries from scratch. The other accolade is the choice of the Mac or PC machines, thus reducing limitations for those who do not have a particular type of computer for a given display task.
