3M will be showing its full new range of multi-touch desktop displays at Kiosk Europe Expo, 12-13 June, The Station, Berlin, Germany. Displays ranging from 18.5-inch to 27-inch will demonstrate how 3M’s portfolio is expanding to address a broader multi-user/multi-touch application environment. Other stand demonstrations will include a 32-inch multi-touch chassis unit in a table configuration.
According to the company, the new multi-touch displays combine multi-touch performance, high-definition graphics, wide viewing angles and elegant product design into fully-integrated, easy-to-use, plug-and-play multi-touch desktop devices.
The 18.5-inch 3M Multi-Touch Display M1866PW, 21.5-inch 3M Multi-Touch Display M2167PW and 24-inch 3M Multi-Touch Display M2467PW all offer 20 simultaneous touch events at 6 millisecond response time, while the 27-inch 3M Multi-Touch Display M2767PW offers 40 touch inputs with a 10 millisecond response. Integrated palm rejection capability is said to create natural user operation when using one or two hands, while 3M says that superior touch accuracy enables precise touch performance, even at display edges and corners.
The displays each feature an anti-stiction surface to provide improved usability for multi-touch applications, and incorporate a 1080 HD LCD display.
In addition, 3M will be exhibiting its 32-inch 3M Multi-Touch Display C3266PW chassis unit. Said to be ideal for integration into larger systems by integrators and OEMs, this large format multi-touch unit enables true multi-user interaction for collaborative and interactive applications. Utilising 3M Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT), the unit delivers 40 simultaneous touches and a 10 millisecond response time while rejecting palms. The industrial grade display has full HD resolution with a fine pixel pitch to maintain sharp image quality while performing up-close interactions.
The Multi-Touch Display C3266PW features a chemically-strengthened glass construction and its 2.6 inches depth and 26 lbs weight are claimed to make it an ideal high performance, easy to integrate, professional multi-touch display for a range of digital signage, interactive table and kiosk solutions.
