Sony’s BZ40H series of 4K HDR displays announced a technology collaboration with interactive specialist TSItouch. The collaboration adds infrared (IR) multitouch technology to the 55, 65 and 75-inch models of Sony’s BRAVIA professional displays.

TSItouch Pulse Type IR technology detects virtually any input — including a finger, gloved finger, stylus or pen — and enables true multitouch for up to 10 simultaneous touch points. The 4K touch screen series is designed with anti-glare properties, a cold-rolled steel chassis, tempered glass and a powder-coated finish that provides additional protection.

The models offer increased picture performance and brightness, a powerful processor and both 2.4/5 GHz WAP support. The TAA and ADA compliant displays feature Pro mode, allowing for quick and easy customization to suit different environments. The One-Step Setting optimizes display settings for specific uses and applications. The BRAVIA models also contain a programmable system on a chip (SoC) platform and Android operating system that enables digital signage to run off the display without a separate media player. Updated cosmetic features include new terminal positions, a flat bottom bezel and a reinforced structure designed for the B2B market.

“Adding touch screen integration to our already powerful BZ40H BRAVIA displays delivers more interactivity, creating a holistic and tactile digital signage solution that can effortlessly communicate critical information while adding enhanced protection and requiring less face-to-face contact with individuals,” said Theresa Alesso, pro division president, Sony Electronics Inc.

“There is a huge range of real-world applications for IR touch, from digital signage and interactive kiosks to information screens in schools, churches and big public utility control rooms,” said TSItouch CEO Gary Mundrake. “The responsiveness and accuracy our technology brings is really nicely paired with the visual quality business buyers know they are going to get with Sony displays.”
