OEMs and Designers Can Develop Multi-Touch Applications Incorporating Simultaneous, Dual-Touch Capability with Microsoft® Windows® 7 Compatibility

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – September 3rd, 2013 – Utilizing projected capacitive touch (PCT or PCAP) technology, the new Multi-touch screen displays from American Industrial Systems (AIS) offer an interactive and unique dual-touch, gesture experience for users. Instead of just one touch point, the sensor in projected capacitive touch technology allows tracking of two simultaneous touches, quickly and accurately across the entire touch screen.  Gesture-based user interactions requiring simultaneous, dual-touch capabilities including panning, zooming and rotating are also made possible with the technology.

Multi-Touch Screen Monitors with Gesture ExperienceCommonly found in smartphones and tablets today, this technology also makes AIS multi-touch screen displays ideal for a multitude of new emerging applications in self-service kiosks, Point-of-Purchase (POP), Point-of-Information displays (POI) and industrial machinery. Engineered for a diverse range of graphically intense application environments such as photo kiosks, ticketing kiosks, bill payment kiosks, financial kiosks and wayfinding kiosks, these robust, open frame displays from AIS are also suitable for control, monitoring and diagnostic applications in hospitals, medical facilities, building and industrial automation.  

The proliferation of application possibilities in the retail environment is a driving force behind the explosive growth and demand for multi-touch screen displays with gesture capabilities. Retailers are always looking for new ways to draw traffic and accelerate their omni-channel agenda in-store.  AIS touch screen monitors with dual touch capabilities compatible with Windows 7 and other popular programming languages are poised to deliver on these new and fast-growing opportunities in retail kiosk markets. Multi-touch displays from AIS allow developers to design products that offer retailers interactive and engaging kiosks that improve in-store merchandising and help connect their shoppers to the online and virtual worlds. 

Sleek in design and cosmetically appealing, the AIS multi-touch gesture displays feature an industrial grade IP54 ingress rating TFT LCD flat panels in a flush mount chassis or open frame design. These industrial multi-touch chassis monitors are commercially off the shelf units (COTS) and come standard in a selection of popular sizes including 15", 15.6”, 17", 18.5”, 19" and 21.5”.

Nelson Tsay, President of AIS, adds “By integrating the experience of smartphones with the interface of our multi-touch screens displays, self-service kiosks become an extension of what people have with them and use every day. The improved user experience from deploying our multi-touch screens will deliver a more efficient, engaging interaction at self-service kiosks, leading to higher sales revenues for retailers”.
