NextWindow Rolls Out New Touch Overlay

NextWindow, which makes optical touch screens for personal and business computing applications, is launching the 2700 Touch Overlay at InfoComm 09.

NextWindow, which makes optical touch screens for personal and business computing applications, is launching the 2700 Touch Overlay this week at InfoComm 09.

The NextWindow 2700 Touch Overlay turns any large display, such as a plasma or LCD, into an interactive touch screen with full mouse-like functionality. Users can click, drag, double-click, and right-click by touching the screen.

"The success of all-in-one PCs from HP, Dell and Apple has spawned a new generation of 'touch screen-native' consumers who simply expect computers of all shapes and sizes to be touch-enabled," said Anthony Uhrick, vice president of Pro-AV and Channel Sales at NextWindow, in a statement. "We are responding by giving the public what it wants."

The NextWindow 2700 is ideal for public-facing applications such as digital signage or directories in shopping malls, according to the company. Visitors in a mall might use their fingers to scroll through a list of retail stores, re-size windows to view a variety of content simultaneously, or click through product videos or other interactive media. Multi-touch functionality means users can pan or zoom images using pinch and swipe techniques.

The technology utilizes sophisticated optical touch screen technology and a robust design to provide a durable, full-clarity solution that is suitable for high-traffic, public-facing applications. Since it's an overlay, the 2700 can be installed by the end user or AV integrator without opening the enclosure or voiding the display warranty. There are no proprietary drivers to install, so the 2700 is compatible with most software applications. The 2700 Touch Overlay also supports Windows 7, Microsoft's next generation operating system, which will offer multi-touch functionality.
