Visualplanet™ unveils multi-user touchfoil™ with ground-breaking capabilities
Pioneering innovations lead to class-leading resolution, greater touch control and screen manipulation, with unrivalled manufacturing versatility for OEM integrators
Visualplanet™ has unveiled its latest invention – the multi-user touchfoil™, with class-leading screen resolution and a state-of-the-art controller. Combined, the two features offer pinpoint touch accuracy and unrivalled versatility in fulfilling the bespoke needs of OEM integrators, worldwide. All at an optimal price: performance ratio and underpinned by visualplanet’s renowned customer service and support team.
The multi-user touchfoil delivers lightning fast 6ms touch performance through glass of up to 10mm, with the precision to drive mouse-designed operating systems with a finger. It offers real-time movement and programmable palm rejection through up to 40 independent touch points, across a range of sizes from 15-55 inches. Its versatility renders it suitable for an extensive range of public-facing terminals, including self-service ticketing, vending, gaming, wayfinding, multiuser tables and kiosks. Its durability, speed, transparency, clarity, accuracy and overall performance are the most advanced in visualplanet’s 14 year history.
Visualplanet – who founded the market for large format flexible film Pro-Cap touch sensors – believes the product to be an industry game-changer.
‘We are a customer-focused business that builds and ships large orders of tailor-made touchfoils. We held back on launching the multi-user touchfoil until we could create one flexible enough to satisfy OEM integrators’ vast scope of needs,’ comments Dan Spencer, visualplanet’s product manager. ‘With this launch, we are offering a touch sensor that can be tailor-made to an anticipated 99% of briefs.’
‘The key is in the marriage of our technology and the controller choice. We carried out extensive testing to ensure compatibility and have selected a circuit board that, in effect, turbo-boosts our technology. This approach has enabled us to leapfrog the capabilities of existing products on the market, by launching with a controller that is easily updated, allowing us, and our customers, to stay ahead of the game. The end result is a superior user-experience that will enable developers and programmers to create jaw-dropping applications and content. The reality is that, with this launch, large format touchscreens can now be as responsive as using a smart phone or tablet device.’
