Arrow Electronics has announced a new EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) agreement with visualplanet, a global manufacturing business that commercialises and industrialises large format touch sensor technology for use in digital and self-service interactive applications.
The company’s touchfoil™ products are deployed in a wide range of public facing digital signage, self-service touch solutions, from real-time bus timetable information boards to mountain top way-finding kiosks.
As part of this new agreement, Arrow will offer across EMEA visualplanet’s touchfoil™ technology, a clear large format, projected capacitance, flexible film sensor that can be applied to glass and many other surfaces to add interactive touch capabilities.
This agreement will benefit the Arrow OCS existing customer base, as visualplanet has developed expertise in projected capacitive touch sensors and continues its development of this technology.
“We are delighted to be entering into a distribution agreement with Arrow. Together, we will create new markets and access high growth sectors in key global territories. It’s an exciting time for large format touch technology as we are experiencing wider adoption and working with our channel partners on ground-breaking applications. With the launch of the new Single User touchfoil™ to service robust self-service solutions in demanding public facing environments, this agreement is perfect timing for us to collectively drive forward the implementation of interactive touch technology.” Vernon Spencer, Managing Director of visualplanet
“With its focus on very large screens, visualplanet brings something unique to the market… The company’s flagship technology can be used in a number of promising market sectors including retail, industrial and medical for instance. This collaboration will help us strengthen our market shares whilst providing Arrow OCS with a major differentiator.” Amir Mobayen, vice president and general manager, Arrow OEM Computing Solutions EMEA
