MultiTaction – a provider of multi-touch displays and software – announced at ISE yesterday that it will have its hardware and software resold worldwide by partner InFocus. MultiTaction products are now available in Germany through InFocus subsidiary Vidco, and will be available in other countries in coming weeks from InFocus resellers.
Brady O. Bruce, CMO at InFocus, said: “We’ve been enamoured of some technology from MultiTaction for some time. They have a different approach in their multi-touch displays; what they did was put the cameras behind the screen, which enables every pixel to be a touchpoint. It’s phenomenal touch technology.
And with the cameras behind the screen, you can also read QR codes; and they have a nice cloud platform. So we’re now reselling MultiTaction screens with InFocus software.”Bruce added: “They’re a really good company. We’ve watched them grow, intrigued by what they’ve done, and we can offer them a much broader footprint through our network of resellers, so it’s a good deal for both companies.”
InFocus products such as the ConX Cloud video meeting service and ConX Exec video conferencing software will be offered as options on the MultiTaction platform.
The partnership follows the August 2017 decision that MultiTaction would offer touchscreen displays from InFocus for its Canvus and Canvus Connect solutions to enable single, large screen, hardware and software solutions for visual collaboration.
