The displays offer commercial systems integrators a smaller unit with superior design elements and the rich features associated with MultiTaction® technology, including operation in bright lighting conditions; 200 frames per second ultra-fast responsiveness; low surface temperature; stackability, and software that is optimized for various input methods, including optical marker and real life object detection and IR Pen use.

The MultiTouch MultiTaction 42-inch displays build on the promise of the company’s patented technology, as well as customer requirements, which are driving the fast adoption of multi-user interactive displays. These include: operation in bright external lighting conditions; support for augmented reality applications and IR pen, and detection of whole hands, not just fingertips.

The new 42” MultiTaction Cell is geared towards demanding retail, museum and corporate installations where a smaller screen size is required. Combined with MultiTouch’s patented CVTS (Computer Vision Through Screen) technology, the display provides superior imaging, resolution and scalable, thin-bezel frameless design that can be embedded in custom-designed enclosures. The companion MT420S offers a stackable product that can be designed for large wall, table, or asymmetric display configurations.

“The multitouch display market has really picked up in the past 12 months and customers have become more aware of the features and possibilities that the technology enables. Our 42-inch display is exactly what the customers want and it provides key features such as full integration, operation in bright lighting conditions, flexible stacking and different interaction methods, including Augmented Reality,” said Timo Korpela, general manager of MultiTouch Americas. “We have received tremendous response from our U.S. customers, who have asked us specifically for features that we have now made standard in our products.”

“Customers have asked for a smaller unit, and we have now responded with what is surely the most powerful multi-user interactive display in the midsize segment of the market,” said Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch Ltd. “Systems integrators can now address display design projects with an even fuller line of MultiTaction products, with a growing feature set. MultiTaction features enable creative developers to go where no touch display has gone before.”

All MultiTaction products include support for the industry’s widest range of development tools, including the MultiTouch Cornerstone software development kit (SDK), Microsoft® Surface 2 SDK, and all TUIO-compatible tools. An external computer with Windows, Linux or Mac can also be used to connect multiple Cells into ever-larger installations.
