MultiTouch, a specialist in interactive display systems, has unveiled a prototype, 4K 84” MultiTaction Cell. Previewed at the company’s annual developer conference and partner summit in Helsinki, the display, which is expected to go into production sometime in mid 2014, is now available for pre-order.
The prototype’s 4K resolution brings major benefits, making it highly suitable for productivity applications, education, presentations, demanding professional applications, and flagship installations. The use of MultiTaction Cells bring a number of benefits including ultra-fast response times, simultaneous pen and touch support, and the ability to track unlimited touch points simultaneously with hand, fingers, Enriched Reality 2D markers and real-life objects.
The 4K 84” MultiTaction Cell is also supported by MultiTouch’s latest Cornerstone 2 software development kit (SDK) that will enable developers to build bespoke interactive applications. Cornerstone 2 simplifies the development of 4K resolution applications and scales from single displays to 50 Megapixel walls with 50% performance increase compared to previous versions of Cornerstone. Cornerstone 2 is available now for free download.
“Our 84” MultiTaction Cell prototype represents a giant leap not just in screen size but in resolution too,” explains Hannu Anttila, VP of Business Development at MultiTouch. “Customers who take advantage of the pre-ordering programme will be among the first to benefit from this ground-breaking technology.”
The pre-order package includes a built-in 4K application PC, MultiTaction ‘experience app’ with example 4K content, a support agreement, a floor mount trolley with wheels, and all necessary transport cases.
MultiTaction displays can be set up in wall or table orientation. In addition, all MultiTaction displays are modular and stackable, enabling users to create huge, interactive walls.
