NextWindow Introduces New Large-Format Touch Screen

New touch screen kit provides thin frame, low profile and simplified integration

NextWindow, a subsidiary of SMART Technologies, announces the 2500 Large-Format Optical Sensor, a new large-format optical touch screen kit for use by systems integrators, OEMs and ODMs. The 2500 optical touch screen kit features thin borders and a low profile, making it attractive for commercial applications and is available in sizes ranging from 30″ to 52″ (76 to 132 cm). The optical sensors use a passive illumination system, improving reliability and simplifying assembly for interactive digital signage, directory displays, kiosks and education settings. The 2500 is on display this week at InfoComm 2010 at the NextWindow booth (N2552).

The 2500 Large-Format Optical Sensor kit includes all of the components necessary to quickly and easily assemble a touch screen, including optical sensors, controller board, passive border and device driver. Standard kits for the 2500 do not include glass, which significantly reduces the cost and risk of transporting the touch screen components to customers. The 2500 can also be purchased fully assembled on glass, should integrators, OEMs and ODMs require. Kits come in standard display sizes, some of which can be customized for unique requirements, thereby limiting inventory risks for systems integrators. Additionally, the product supports Microsoft® Windows® 7 multitouch functions such as zoom, rotate, tap and press-and-tap.

“The 2500 Large-Format Optical Sensor is an exciting development for NextWindow and its large- format customers,” said Anthony Uhrick, vice president of large-format displays at NextWindow. “It offers customers a reliable, cost-effective and easy-to-implement touch-screen solution.”
