MultiTaction(R) iWall and Bluescape Visual Collaborative Workspace Highlight MultiTouch's Presence at InfoComm 2014
Company Showcases Turnkey Interactive Video Wall Solution for Corporate Spaces and Other High-Value Locations
LOS GATOS, CA, Jun 11, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- MultiTouch Ltd., a world leader in interactive display systems, today announces the showcase of its MultiTaction iWall at InfoComm 2014, taking place June 18-20, 2014 in Las Vegas. This 16' by 9' turnkey interactive video wall will capture the attention at MultiTouch's booth N1463. At InfoComm, MultiTouch will also debut its partnership with Bluescape, a cloud-based visual collaborative workspace provider.
Both MultiTaction iWall and Bluescape's solution utilize the MultiTaction Cell 55" with Ultra-Thin Bezel displays as the hardware platform but it is the applications on these installations that prove the versatility of MultiTaction products. Bluescape's software highlights the real-time collaboration in distributed decision making, planning and design whereas the MultiTaction iWall is a state-of-the-art presentation platform for corporate public spaces and other high-value locations.
Dubbed the 'New Standard for Interactive Walls,' the MultiTaction iWall boasts leading-edge features made possible by MultiTouch's patented Computer Vision Through Screen (CVTS) technology: unlimited simultaneous users; concurrent touch, pen and 2D barcode tracking; Enriched Reality(TM) object recognition; and MultiTaction Codice(TM) user identification. The result is a stunning combination of 24 megapixel on-screen resolution, capability to run multiple concurrent 4K videos and the ability for users to send all the content on MultiTaction iWall to their emails, directly from the screens.
At InfoComm, MultiTouch will also highlight new hardware and software features supported by MultiTaction displays. Whereas ultra-thin bezel LCDs have previously been utilized for upright video walls only, MultiTouch is now fully supporting table orientation for its 55" Ultra-Thin Bezel displays -- another world's first for interactive displays. MultiTouch is also showcasing the unique capability for asymmetric installations with an L-shaped interactive reception desk built using three 42" MultiTaction Cells.
MultiTouch's software highlights include free MultiTaction Cornerstone 2.0 SDK for unparalleled application development using native MultiTaction; TUIO or Windows Touch compatibility; and a new TUIO import feature supporting third-party touch displays with MultiTaction Cornerstone.
"InfoComm is the perfect venue to showcase our industry-leading technology that is setting a new standard for interactive displays," said Timo Korpela, general manager of MultiTouch. "Our partnership with Bluescape demonstrates the integration ability of MultiTaction displays, allowing our partners to create vertical solutions using the best interactive displays available in the market."
In addition to the live demonstrations, Tommi Ilmonen, MultiTouch's CTO, will lead an educational session on "The Evolution of Interactive Display Technologies" on June 18 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
