3M Showcases Large-Format Multi-Touch Solutions for Interactive Digital Signage at InfoComm 2014

3M Touch Systems Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Display Materials and Systems Division, is exhibiting its latest large-format multi-touch solutions for interactive digital signage applications at InfoComm 2014 (Booth N2063, North Hall):

55” Collaborative Touch Table: 3M will showcase a sleek touch concept table implementation, constructed by Ideum, which incorporates the 3M 55-inch Projected Capacitive prototype touchscreen. This 55-inch Projected Capacitive touchscreen is highlighted by its ultra-fast touch response for 60 simultaneous touches, and the concept table demonstrates how this touchscreen can be ideal for multi-user collaborative applications. 3M anticipates that the 3M 55-inch Projected Capacitive touchscreen will be available for commercial display applications in 2014.

High Performance Large-format Multi-touch Systems: For OEMs, ODMs and display integrators interested in developing their own lineup of large-format multi-touch devices, 3M offers its high-performance, projected capacitive multi-touch system (sensor and controller), the 3M Multi-Touch System PCT2420PX, in sizes from 32” to 46”. The PCT2420PX system tracks up to 60 simultaneous touches with ultra-fast response, offers bezel-free, tablet-like integration, and features 3M’s high performance 3M Multi-Touch Controller PX multi-touch electronics. These large-format multi-touch systems (32” to 46”) are now available for sale directly from 3M. For more information, visit www.3m.com/multitouch.

Immersive Multi-touch Display Wall featuring 3M’s Multi-display/Multi-touch Driver: Exhibited on an impressive display wall composed of nine 42” multi-touch displays, the 3M Multi-Touch Driver MT7.14 offers Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows 7 applications fast and accurate simultaneous multi-touch capabilities that can span across configurations of two or more 3M multi-touch displays. This free, downloadable driver enables multi-touch software developers to create more immersive applications that enable multiple users to simultaneously interact with multiple displays on a display wall without any noticeable touch lag or interference while moving across displays; or allows a single user to use multiple touch screens at one time in a workstation or wall display environment. 3M Multi-Touch Driver MT7.14 is currently available for download at www.3m.com/multitouch.
