Optical multi-touch touchscreen technology and still larger IDS displays
ELO TOUCHSYSTEMS INTERACTIVE DIGITAL SIGNAGE SOLUTIONS – AT SCREENMEDIA EXPO 2012
Kessel Lo, Belgium – 30 April 2012
–Elo TouchSystems will be present at the Screenmedia Expo exhibition, from 16th to 17th May in London. A pioneer in touch solutions, Elo TouchSystems will showcase its new optical multi-touch touchscreen technology for Interactive Digital Signage (IDS) as well as a new 55 inch IDS display, the 5500L.
Optical multi-touch touchscreen technology: up to 4 touches
The latest touchscreen technology available on the Elo TouchSystems digital signage displays – optical – is a camera based technology that boasts a multi-touch response with up to four touches. This touchscreen technology offers superb on-screen transparency and colour fidelity and shows no wearing. Optical technology responds to any pointing device, whether a finger, gloved hand, prosthetic, stylus, card or pen and assures users of a high screen resolution and accuracy. It is now available on the Elo TouchSystems 42-, 46- and 55 inch IDS displays. It is not only suited for applications such as IDS, but lends itself also to applications in kiosks, self-service, museums and for education purposes.
The latest addition to the IDS family is the 55 inch model 5500L. This large-format, high definition touch display is perfect for interactive advertising and visitor guidance in, for example, shopping centres and hotels. It has a commercial-grade large format LCD panel in a sleek design. The 5500L features a choice of two sensitive, accurate touchscreen technologies, each with pure-glass construction for visual clarity: optical touch, that provides multi-touch with up to 4 touches and gesture support (Microsoft Windows 7 required), and Intellitouch, Elo Touchsystems’ single-touch surface acoustic wave technology that stands out for consistent reliability.
