Engage announces DISPLAX distribution

Tech specialists partner with multitouch Skin manufacturer

Engage Production Ltd, the interactive technology for branded environments specialist, has announced that it is distributing DISPLAX’s innovative range of Skin Multitouch products – the first large-format, through-glass multitouch system – in the UK, as partner and system integrator.

The DISPLAX Skin Multitouch utilises thinner-than-paper (100 microns) capacitive Multitouch Foil to transform non-conductive materials into multitouch surfaces. Manufactured using polyester with embedded nanowires, enabling a fast (22ms) projective capacitive touch capability, the foil is flexible and tough and operates with LCD, LED or projection systems.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer DISPLAX Skin via our Innovation Store,” comments Engage Production MD Steve Blyth. “This incredibly versatile and innovative capacitive multitouch solution complements the multitouch cells and overlays in our portfolio, and adds another dimension to our expanding Innovation Store.”

DISPLAX Skin Multitouch enables zero-bezel designs, even on curved surfaces, and can detect up to 12 touch points through glass and other non-metallic substrates such as wood, acrylic, Corian etc. It operates through a maximum of 20mm and a high number of sensing ‘intersections’ provide excellent accuracy and response time. Skin Multitouch includes plug & play Windows 7 Touch Gesture support, and doesn’t require proprietary SDK (software development kit). A wide diversity of sizes are available, from 30 up to 100inches, with a choice of 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.

Tom Kermeen, DISPLAX Sales Director: “DISPLAX is a worldwide renowned company in the touch industry. We rely on technology-savvy partners to distribute our products locally and provide end customers all the assistance they need to create cutting-edge projects. Engage Production Ltd is a key player in this area and we are thrilled to be working with them.”

Engage Production Ltd is at the cutting-edge of interactive concepts for branded environments. Currently overseeing a number of projects involving multitouch tech, including world’s largest multitouch Cell interactive wall for a global management consultancy and bespoke editing software for global media giant Sky, Engage is the first choice for a number of top creative agencies, including Start JG, Flourish and Action Impact. Previous projects include work for Adidas, News International, Virgin Mobile, BT, Toyota, T Mobile, Vodafone, Sony and Christies.

We ‘major’ on the following: Gestural tracking; technical installations; content programming; 3D animation; augmented reality; multitouch installations; videowalls; bespoke digital displays. And thanks to our Innovation Store, we’re able to source the latest tech to deliver what’s required of us – and more. We recently launched our own dedicated quarterly magazine, TouchPoint – to bring our clients (and the press) up-to-date with what we’ve been up to, with news, case studies, interviews and features. We also commissioned a new showreel, to visually showcase our technical knowhow and expertise in less than a minute, and set up an extensive Vimeo page, with projects and products on display. Both of these innovations are accessible via our brand new website, which launched in January 2012.
