MultiTaction delivers touch functionality to large LCD displays12 January 2011
MultiTaction builds on MultiTouch’s patented imaging technologies for multitouch displays, and is claimed to provide the world’s most advanced set of touch capabilities.
MultiTaction’s most significant advancement is that its optical multitouch sensor technology can be integrated easily into integrated circuit (IC) boards, creating a modular camera system that can scale up to 100-inch high-resolution displays. Whether professional, digital signage, or consumer displays, MultiTaction can be integrated seamlessly so that developers have slim design displays that are both high-resolution – up to Quad HD/4K – and scalable and stackable. MultiTaction offers frame rates at more than 200 frames per second.
Among other breakthrough features, the MultiTaction platform eliminates the single most troublesome characteristic of optical touch displays, which is sensitivity to external lighting, such as sunlight, spotlights, and other ambient light sources. MultiTaction incorporates hybrid reflection/shadow tracking technology for smooth performance in any environment.
MultiTouch’s Cornerstone software elegantly translates touch into the programming experience, creating multitouch displays that can read unlimited touch points, including hands, fingers, fingertips, 2D Markers, and real-life objects.
