In addition, the pure-glass touchscreen provides excellent image clarity, resolution and light transmission, durable, scratch-resistant glass surface and finger, gloved hand and soft stylus activation. The IntelliTouch Plus touchscreen provides system integrators the ability to incorporate a multi-touch technology solution that is both reliable and compatible with the Windows 7 operating system.

Connectivity and Accessories

The 2201L offers USB/Serial combination touch controller, DVI, VGA and built-in speakers. Models also come equipped with a removable base and mounting features, including a VESA mount as well as wall- and arm-mounting options, providing installation flexibility for almost any architectural configuration.
