“Now Touch has truly entered in many products and people are more involved, we see the need to interact and simultaneously communication. With the new Multi-User Touch Series we are ready for the future ,” explained Wilfred de Man, Sales and Marketing Director of MMD Public Signage EMEA.

One of the highlights in the BDT Series is a 55” Multi-User Touch Table based on the first Philips 55” LED Touch Screen, the BDT5530ET/32. The Touch Table is placed on a cabinet to work at an ergonomic height and the screen itself is 75 mm thin. The cabinet has space for a PC tower it is conduc¬ted with a lockable door and air fan, network and power connections.

Some of the BDT Series have extra individual features. For example the BDT4225EM/32 is a Multi-User Touch Screen which also can be used in horizontal position. It is supplied with four, 8 cm high, stainless steel feet which can be screwed at the back corners of the touch screen. This feature turns the Multi-User Touch Screen into a Touch Table. The VM series are equipped with a Smart Insert where a mini PC can be placed, without adding to the overall depth of the display. This ensures the simplest of installations when mounting via a VESA bracket.
