Zytronic Ultra-Narrow Bezel Touch Technology Is for Interactive Video Walls

Zytronic, the company known for third-party Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT and MPCT) touch sensors will use ISE to unveil its new range of multi-touch controllers. The new controllers enable touch screens to have ultra-narrow inactive borders and the integration of contactless peripheral systems such as NFC payment. They will be in Stand 8-M310.
In response to the growing demand for all-glass fronted narrow touch screen borders, especially in video walls, the new touch controllers to be launched by Zytronic at ISE allow touch sensors to be designed with substantially reduced non-active borders, i.e., less than 10 millimeters on a 55” screen, less than half of the current industry norm. This will include the Barco UniSee.
The new Zytronic controllers are based around a unique and proprietary ASIC and feature a higher noise immunity, allowing technologies such as RFID, NFC and Qi wireless battery charging to be implemented adjacent to or even within the active area without impairing the normal performance of the touch screen. These technologies emit signals which can interfere with the operation of conventional projected capacitive touch screens.

Enhanced object recognition and other new features of the controller will also be demonstrated at ISE. You can see Zytronic here.
