MultiTouch Ltd now offer their 42” and 55” MultiTaction Cell multitouch displays with fully integrated with Windows 8. The new MultiTaction Cell 42” (MT420W8) and 55” (MT550W8) with embedded Windows 8 on Intel Core i7 support simultaneous use of 25 touch points, the new Windows 8 native pen tracking and real life object interaction.
The addition of Windows 8 widens the applications for MultiTaction displays, to clients seeking large integrated Windows 8 devices particularly suitable for use in public spaces. The new MultiTaction Cell displays allow clients to use applications from the Windows 8 store, with both 42” and 55” models running applications compatible across smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs.
In addition, developers can use their preferred development platforms using industry standard interfaces such as TUIO and XML stream. MultiTouch’s own Cornerstone SDK is also fully supported.
“We have long said that touch technology is the way of the future for consumers and businesses,” explains Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch. “With Windows 8 operating across multiple devices we will see the number of interactive applications grow exponentially.’’
