MultiTouch Ltd (Hall 11, stand N53)has today announced details of its stand at ISE 2013. The company will be demonstrating latest innovations, including ultra-thin Bezel displays, Enriched Reality, Windows 8, Hybrid Tracking, a prototype of an Android touch display, and MultiTaction Site Manager – across a total of 17 large-screen displays.
MultiTouch’s showcase of what the company claims is the world’s first ultra-thin bezel multi-touch display will highlight the features of MultiTaction technology. The gap from pixel to pixel is reduced to less than 6mm, making stacked configurations with minimal bezel intrusion possible. Consisting of six MultiTaction 55” UTB displays running a custom-made MultiTaction Experience application, the demonstration will show MultiTouch’s simultaneous touch, IR pen and object recognition, 200+fps tracking and Enriched Reality.
Based on MultiTouch’s proprietary Computer Vision Through Screen (CVTS) technology, Enriched Reality uses 2D optical markers for real-life object detection to identify any object. In addition, Enriched Reality supports blob tracking which recognises all basic geometric shapes including circles, triangles and rectangles. Visitors will find the Enriched Reality demo particularly compelling. A large interactive wall displays interesting content and the challenge is how to identify and engage with a user in this scenario. The solution involves issuing users with a badge which includes a marker personalised for them. Users can then tag any content they like and the information is sent to the email address registered to the marker.
Another of MultiTouch’s world firsts, Hybrid Tracking, will be demonstrated at the show. Unique in the optical touch screen market, Hybrid Tracking renders MultiTaction cells immune to external lighting conditions. By addressing the issues caused by ambient lighting, MultiTouch has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for interactive displays in public spaces.
