Examples of 12" to 50" Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™) touch solutions will demonstrate potential for innovative industrial, self service and interactive digital signage user interface designs. At SID Display Week 2010, Zytronic, the leading developer of PCT™ products for public and industrial touchscreen applications, will introduce a new family of touch controllers designed to enhance user experience.
Designed for its proprietary range of touch sensors, the new touch controllers offer features such as dual touch output for linkage to “multi touch” or gesture recognition software, Windows® 7 plug and play, in-field firmware upgradeability and reduced PCB footprint. Visitors to the booth will also experience Zytronic’s latest touch solutions including a 50" example of its unique large form/factor projected capacitive screens in the form of a multi touch ZYTOUCH® sensor. This can be used with LCD or rear projection systems up to 82" in size, for applications such as street vending or interactive digital signage. In addition, a central podium featuring a 26" custom ZYBRID® sensor will demonstrate a new driver function supporting the new controllers, which allows multiple touch zones and buttons to be defined on a single sensor. The unit will also serve as an example of how the technology supports today’s ergonomic and styling trends such as bezel-free designs and screen printed features.
The booth will also feature a quad touchscreen display highlighting the various unrivalled capabilities of PCT™, and using Zytronic’s customizable ZYBRID®.
Completing the feature display, a printed, ground and polished ZYBRID® touchscreen combined with a 12" LCD and providing an additional array of touch-sensitive buttons will demonstrate how PCT™ supports new levels of system integration. This new solution from Zytronic is expected to be of great interest to designers of touch user-interface applications such as industrial computing, security and self-service terminals as it allows a full drag-and-drop touch screen to be combined with a keyboard, pin pad or hotkeys located outside the viewable area of the LCD. This simplifies integration and reduces peripheral devices and mechanical buttons for greater reliability, reduced cost and enhanced appearance.
