Gesturetek gets North American exclusivity for Displax Skin Multi-touch14 January 2013
Portugal’s Displax Interactive Systems has appointed GestureTek System as the exclusive distributor for the Skin Multi-touch product for the USA and Canada.
Skin Multi-touch is a thin transparent film that can be easily placed on glass, windows, monitors, or virtually any surface to allow that surface to enable multi-touch interaction by one or more users. There are three modes of multi-touch capability: dual-touch, six-touch and 12-touch interactivity modes.
GestureTek, which specialises in video gesture control, has a diverse portfolio of technology and products that it markets around the world, in entertainment facilities, museums, retail locations, advertising campaigns, digital signage networks, and other public and private venues. The Skin Multi-touch product fits well into this portfolio, said the company, and gives GestureTek the added ability to deliver multi-touch to a new section of the market and set of locations. Skin Multi-touch is said to be perfect for turning custom installations of large flat screens into multi-touch screens, and can be applied in tables, kiosks and other structures. Skin Multi-touch is also suited for turning windows into multi-touch surfaces so that storefronts can now offer this capability to patrons.
"We are very happy that Displax has chosen GestureTek to be the distributor of this innovative new product in North America," said Vincent John Vincent, CEO and co-founder of GestureTek (pictured). "GestureTek is pleased to continue its history of deploying state of the art multi-touch technology in the digital signage/public display and health markets. We look forward to what this will offer our resellers and customers in the growing markets for dynamic multi-touch interactivity."
"Displax is a worldwide renowned company in the touch industry,” said Miguel Fonseca, founder and CEO of Displax. “We rely on technology-savvy partners to distribute our products locally and develop cutting-edge projects. GestureTek is undoubtedly a reference in interactivity sector, with a world-class portfolio of projects and we are thrilled to be working with them."
