Zytronic Showcases Large Curved Multi-touch Screen Technology at InfoComm
Tyne & Wear, NE21 5SG
Press release date: June 1, 2014
Zytronic, the leading developer of projected capacitive touch sensor technology for ultra large format displays, is showing digital signage and information display manufacturers the possibilities open to them with its exhibit at InfoComm. The centerpiece is a proof-of-concept kiosk incorporating a concave 40-inch multi-touch screen. A waist height 19-inch "Qwerty" touchscreen keyboard has also been included on the same "zero bezel" printed glass interface, with the two touch sensors managed by a pair of Zytronic ZXY200 controllers managed by a single PC.
Competing for customers, companies are increasingly seeking more eye-catching units for digital signage and self-service applications that deliver a more enjoyable user experience. Large format, multi-touch-enabled screens are gaining wider acceptance and curved screens are seen by many observers as the next wave for adoption. Zytronic is in the vanguard of the application of high performance touch technology to large curved screens for public use.
Zytronic is also demonstrating the newest addition to its proprietary MPCT™ multi-touch projected capacitive product portfolio, the ZXY300, a touch controller that enables significant improvements in operational performance on ultra-large format MPCT touchscreens (above 55-inches in size).
By combining innovative electronic design with updated firmware containing its latest touch detection algorithms, Zytronic's new controller can boost the density of touch data captured by the screen, significantly increasing touch resolution, whilst still maintaining millisecond response times. This means it is possible to quickly distinguish between up to 40 individual touch points that are closer than ever before, even on the largest MPCT touchscreens.
The extra data gathering capability of the ZXY300's electronics and firmware increases the performance on ultra large MPCT sensors. As a result it is possible for the largest Zytronic multi-touch sensors to determine the positions of individual simultaneous touch events with far greater precision.
With the addition of the ZXY300 controller, the complete range of MPCT sensor sizes currently available have the capacity to support up to 40 simultaneous touch points with a touch separation of <10mm between each point (i.e. less than the width of a fingertip).
Used in conjunction with MPCT multi-touch sensors, the new ZXY300 touch controller is suited to a variety of applications where multi-touch precision is of prime importance, even on the largest displays. These include interactive exhibits in museums, multi-user design/architectural workstations, cataloguing and assisted selling in retail and banking applications, car showrooms, as well as command/control systems in utility companies and industrial facilities.
Visitors to the Zytronic booth at InfoComm can see this cutting-edge technology incorporated into a number of rugged touch displays including a fully functioning 55-inch touch table.
Zytronic is the developer and manufacturer of a unique range of internationally award-winning touch sensor products. These products employ an embedded sensing element and are based around projected capacitive technology (PCT™) sensing. PCT offers significant durability, environmental stability and optical enhancement benefits to system designers of touch interactive, industrial, self - service and public access equipment. During 2012, Zytronic developed new know-how to create mutual projected capacitive technology (MPCT™), which enables multi-user and multi touch sensing in ultra large form factor sizes up to 84".
Zytronic products are used in electronic displays for self service and information systems, ATMs and gaming machines, as well as by military, computer, telecommunications and medical OEMs, and are available from its network of worldwide distributors. The company has its headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Blaydon, Tyne & Wear in the UK. In addition to ISO-approved manufacturing, these facilities are home to Zytronic's team of lamination, material science and electronics specialists who are responsible for ongoing product development in composite technology.
