Zytronic raises the bar for Player Interfaces – New touch controllers compatible with contactless payment, Qi charging

Zytronic is to unveil its new range of multi-touch controllers at ICE raising the bar for the design, speed, accuracy and performance of large format touch screens. Zytronic gives free rein to the creativity of slot machine designers with its capability to supply high performance touch sensors with very low or no minimum order quantities at ICE in London (6-8 February, Stand S9-359).

Commenting Ian Crosby, sales and marketing director said, “Zytronic is setting a new standard for touch performance at ICE enabling new features like contactless payment and Qi charging for phones. This allows designers to create interfaces that are more exciting and more capable than ever before.”

The new Zytronic controllers feature a significantly higher electromagnetic ‘noise’ (EMI) immunity, allowing technologies such as RFID, NFC and Qi wireless battery charging to be integrated immediately adjacent to or even within the touch sensor without impairing the normal performance of the touchscreen. These technologies emit signals which can interfere with the operation of conventional projected capacitive touch screens.

Touch screens are now a must have feature for casino games, as the industry reaches out to a new generation of players. Games are becoming more skill based, and geared towards younger ‘millennial’ players, who expect a screen to respond when they touch it. Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™) touch sensors such as those produced by Zytronic provide the same fast, reliable touch experience on screens of 20” to over 85” diagonal as on a small tablet.

Zytronic is able to provide sensors customised to the requirements of specific games or consoles with very low or no minimum order quantities (MoQ). This capability has made it a leading supplier to the gaming industry, allowing designers great flexibility in creating console designs without being restricted by a range of standard touch sensors. Its presence at ICE 2018 will include a demonstration unit comprising of a uniquely designed video button deck and curved ultra-narrow border multitouch sensor.
