Engage Production, the interactive technology for branded environments specialist, has announced that it is distributing DISPLAX’s range of Skin Multitouch products – which is said to be the first large-format, through-glass multitouch system – in the UK, as partner and system integrator.
The DISPLAX Skin Multitouch utilises thinner-than-paper (100 microns) capacitive Multitouch Foil to transform non-conductive materials into multitouch surfaces. Manufactured using polyester with embedded nanowires, enabling a fast (22ms) projective capacitive touch capability, the foil is flexible and tough and operates with LCD, LED or projection systems.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer DISPLAX Skin via our Innovation Store,” said Engage Production MD Steve Blyth. “This incredibly versatile and innovative capacitive multitouch solution complements the multitouch cells and overlays in our portfolio, and adds another dimension to our expanding Innovation Store.”
DISPLAX Skin Multitouch enables zero-bezel designs, even on curved surfaces, and can detect up to 12 touch points through glass and other non-metallic substrates such as wood, acrylic, Corian etc. It operates through a maximum of 20mm and a high number of sensing ‘intersections’ provide excellent accuracy and response time.
Skin Multitouch includes plug & play Windows 7 Touch Gesture support, and doesn’t require a proprietary SDK (software development kit). A wide range of sizes is available, from 30 up to 100inches, with a choice of 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.
“DISPLAX is a worldwide renowned company in the touch industry,” said Tom Kermeen, DISPLAX Sales Director. “We rely on technology-savvy partners to distribute our products locally and provide end customers all the assistance they need to create cutting-edge projects. Engage Production is a key player in this area and we are thrilled to be working with them.”
