Zytronic will be using ISE as the platform on which to unveil its latest innovation in multi-touch technology for self-service and unattended touchscreen applications. The company will be demonstrating a further addition to its proprietary MPCT™ projected capacitive product portfolio, with new touch controller technology developed to enable improvements in operational performance on ultra-large format MPCT touchscreens (above 55-inches in size).
By combining innovative electronic design with updated firmware containing its latest touch detection algorithms, Zytronic’s new controller can significantly boost the density of touch data captured by the screen, significantly increasing touch resolution, whilst still maintaining millisecond response times. This means it is possible to quickly distinguish between touch points that are closer than ever before, even on the largest MPCT touchscreens.
Visitors to the Zytronic stand at ISE will be able to see this cutting-edge technology in action, with it incorporated into a fully functioning 55-inch touch table. A second live demo will feature a 32-inch convex screen with multi-touch, showing MPCT’s unique ability to be implemented in a wide variety of designs, including on curved surfaces.
“The interactive digital signage market is important to Zytronic and ISE is a key event in this field. Attendees to the show will have the perfect opportunity to interact with our latest multi-touch technology and experience the raised level of precision we added to this versatile and extremely robust offering,” states Ian Crosby, Sales & Marketing Director at Zytronic. “These two demos underline Zytronic’s strength in the digital signage sector and our ability to integrate cutting-edge interactivity into rugged, ultra-large displays designed for deployment in public areas.”
Zytronic is the developer and manufacturer of a unique range of internationally award-winning touch sensor products. These products employ an embedded sensing element and are based around projected capacitive technology (PCT™) sensing. PCT offers significant durability, environmental stability and optical enhancement benefits to system designers of touch interactive, industrial, self – service and public access equipment. During 2012, Zytronic developed new know-how to create mutual projected capacitive technology (MPCT™), which enables multi-user and multi touch sensing in ultra large form factor sizes up to 84″.
Zytronic products are used in electronic displays for self service and information systems, ATMs and gaming machines, as well as by military, computer, telecommunications and medical OEMs, and are available from its network of worldwide distributors. The company has its headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Blaydon, Tyne & Wear in the UK. In addition to ISO-approved manufacturing, these facilities are home to Zytronic’s team of lamination, material science and electronics specialists who are responsible for ongoing product development in composite technology.
