NextWindow Upgrades Touch Screen Overlays
NextWindow introduces its new 2150 Optical Touch Screen for large format LCDs and Plasma displays at SID Display Week 2008 in Los Angeles.
NextWindow, a designer and manufacturer of optical touch technology, is introducing its new 2150 Optical Touch Screen for large format LCDs and Plasma displays, at SID Display Week 2008 in Los Angeles.
“Our new 2150 Optical Touch Screen is a drop-in replacement to our previous 2100 model, and provides the same benefits, such as full mouse emulation with no proprietary drivers,” said NextWindow’s vice president of sales Anthony Uhrick in a statement. “Plus, the screen now features other improvements including easier integration, multitouch and gesture recognition, fewer components for higher reliability, and because it is USB-powered, there is no need for external power.”
The Optical Touch Screen uses clear tempered glass for maximum image clarity, and accurate touch sensitivity. The screens are activated by a light touch with any touch method (finger, gloved hand, or pointer), and require only a one-time, four-point calibration, according to the company. The sensor does not require any special gaskets, or grounding considerations, and there are no compression issues. The 2150, which is designed for display integrators and manufacturers developing custom display enclosures, is suited to interactive kiosks, digital signage, education, training, and collaboration.
NextWindow make screen optical touch screen overlays from 15 inches to more than 100 inches. Based in Aukland, New Zealand, its U.S. headquarters are in Emeryville, Calif.
