TouchSystems Adds Multi-Touch Display to the X Series
TouchSystems introduces a new 55-inch display with multi-touch. The display is part of the X Series, TouchSystems’ line of executive-level touch screens.
The addition isn’t a surprise; Carol Nordin, president of TouchSystems, says, “Our customers are looking for more interactive solutions. We aim to meet that demand by using newer technologies in our displays. These newer technologies result in multi-touch capabilities, an important factor when seeking to create solutions that mimic smartphones or tablets.”
The X 55, based on the NEC X552S, is designed for 24/7 operation. It comes with added thermal protection, internal temperature sensors with self-diagnostics, and fan-based technology and is comprised of an industrial-strength, premium-grade panel. The display is LED BLU, meaning that power consumption is decreased and that the display has a slimmer depth. It also features a built-in, standardized expansion slot – commonly known as an Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) slot – that allows for seamless integration with third-party components such as single board computers or media players. The display is integrated with an infra red technology that offers 12 touch points.
