Leading developer and manufacturer of advanced touch sensor solutions, Zytronic, has made it much quicker and easier to design powerful and intuitive multi-touch User Interfaces (UI) for Android™ with the announcement of its Android ZyConfig App.
Commenting, Ian Crosby, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Zytronic, Inc. said, “Android is becoming increasingly popular as system integrators adopt the freely available operating system and the lower-cost computing hardware that supports it. It has spread rapidly beyond handsets and tablets, and is now becoming a much more common operating system for digital signage and other self-service hardware.”
He continued, “Each target hardware running Android can be slightly different, and setting up the Android Operating System to work with a touch controller and touch screen requires a certain amount of low-level software configuration, which not all companies have the in-house expertise to perform. We’ve made it as easy as downloading an app onto the target hardware and performing two simple steps to remove the complexity from the installation and set-up process.”
The app is available from http://zytronic.co.uk/support/downloads and is loaded onto the Android target hardware. Once loaded, the tool detects the attached Zytronic touch controller and the user just needs to calibrate the touch screen and tune the touch sensitivity which is done quickly and easily through the app.
Zytronic Displays Ltd internationally award-winning touch sensors are used globally in ATMs, digital signage, self-service kiosks and gaming machines as well as by industrial and medical OEMs. The company’s success rests on its patented and highly durable touch sensing technologies, which can be provided in custom designs of 85” and beyond.
