Elo TouchSystems, a Tyco Electronics business, launched a new line of Interactive Digital Signage (IDS) touch systems designed to drive significant opportunities for digital display applications and development. The new IDS portfolio -- which combines precision acoustic pulse recognition touch screen technology with commercial-grade, large format LCD panels -- offers System Integrators, Value-Added Resellers and Software Developers a high-performance solution for the interactive enablement of large-scale digital displays in high-traffic environments.
The new Elo TouchSystems IDS portfolio offers the digital signage market a unique industry solution: the only display system to incorporate zero-bezel, edge-to-edge glass touch-screen technology into large-format, ruggedized panels specifically built for commercial environments. The responsive Elo TouchSystems acoustic pulse recognition (APR) touch technology -- which promises consistent, resilient touch functionality – is housed in a highly durable, aluminum chassis to ensure reliable interactivity and performance in almost any public-access location. Optional computer modules further optimize media bandwidth and interactivity for the delivery of highly engaging and measurable consumer content.
"Our new IDS portfolio offers the digital signage market something it hasn't seen before: large-format, exceptionally durable display screens specifically designed for interactive touch applications," said Mark Mendenhall, vice president, Tyco Electronics and general manager of Elo TouchSystems. "Elo considers touch functionality the next wave of consumer engagement and targeted out-of-home messaging -- and we believe that our IDS portfolio will significantly drive this evolution in the digital signage market by accelerating our channel partners' adoption and competitive advantage."
The new Elo TouchSystems IDS family features three sizes of zero-bezel Digital Signage-rated displays (vs. panels designed for home environments) measuring 32- to 46-inches. The portfolio incorporates advanced panel technologies including Samsung Electronics' LCD Digital Information Display (DID) technology to provide a scratch resilient, aluminum frame encased solution able to withstand constant interactivity in high-traffic, public-access venues. Elo TouchSystems APR technology recognizes touch on virtually the entire screen surface, offering full-screen interface navigation regardless of how the screen is touched (finger, prosthetics, stylus or pen) and a highly efficient display canvas for almost any commercial application.
