Menlo Park, California -- Elo TouchSystems, Inc., the global leader in touch technology and a business unit of Tyco Electronics, has launched a new 1229L 12" Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) multi-function integrated touchmonitor. Following on the success of its 1525L 15" LCD touchmonitor with built-in magnetic stripe reader (MSR), the new 1229L includes options for an MSR, a rear-facing LED customer display, and a biometric fingerprint-recognition device. The 1229L multifunction integrated touchmonitor is fully configurable for a variety of applications in the retail, hospitality, medical, gaming and amusement markets, where its compact design efficiently saves valuable work space. The 1229L is available with a choice of Elo touch technologies: IntelliTouch surface-wave, AccuTouch five-wire resistive, and CarrollTouch infrared.

Integrated Components Mean Easy and Aesthetic Installation

"The 1229L is a continuation of Elo's commitment to increased value in new products," says Paul Wiener, Elo's marketing manager. "Its multifunction options are integrated ergonomically into the housing and designed to flow with the elegant styling of the monitor. We have reduced the number of peripheral power and communication cables as well as power bricks by incorporating the connectivity inside the monitor. The 1229L allows for a quick and easy installation while providing full functionality in a space-saving design. The addition of the 1229L multifunction integrated touchmonitor establishes Elo as the single point of contact for one of the broadest ranges of designed-for-touch touchmonitors."

Versatility Across Applications

The new 1229L 12" LCD multifunction integrated touchmonitor provides a supremely versatile tool across a variety of applications and markets. "The three-track magnetic stripe reader is the perfect choice for applications that require the use of loyalty cards, ID cards and credit-card transactions," says Wiener. "The rear-facing display gives the customer immediate visual confirmation of the transaction. And the biometric fingerprint-recognition device provides unparalleled security for employee log-in and all types of system access." According to Mark Bolt, Elo's product manager, the 1229L LCD display, combined with the customer's choice of Elo's touch technologies, provides exceptional light-transmission rates to maintain image quality and color purity. Bolt adds, "The breadth of touch technologies available on the 1229L also means that touch input can be activated by the broadest range of styli, including finger, fingernail, gloved hand, and credit card. There is no stylus material limitation with the 1229L touchmonitor."
