Manufactured at Zytronic’s facility in the UK, they are shipped to Japan rolled into carboard tubes (for cost efficient transportation) and laminated to the back of locally sourced, printed glass. As the majority of Navita systems are used by a single user at a time, HYOJITO opted for sensors designed to work with Zytronic’s ZXY100 and ZXY110 touch controllers, depending on whether single or dual-touch performance is required. Both deliver millisecond fast, accurate touch response, and support simple gesture controls, such as swipes.
The Jinja Navita system is now installed outside in the grounds of over 20 Shinto shrines providing multilingual public information, educating overseas visitors how to behave appropriately during their visit. Zytronic’s ability to supply high quality, specially sized touch sensors in very low quantities was critical to their use in this application and demonstrates the true flexibility of its manufacturing process. Its office in Tokyo, Japan provided close support to HYOJITO throughout the project, helping it to apply modern touchscreen technology in the most traditional of Japanese settings.
