TE Connectivity will showcase their latest innovative Elo TouchSystems products for gaming applications at the annual ICE Totally Gaming exhibition in London, UK, 24 – 26 January 2012.
The main Elo TouchSystems product highlight at the show will be a new 22″ gaming LED touchmonitor 2244L, a wide viewing angle version of the recently released 2243L 22″ open-frame monitor, alongside a new 55″ model in the Interactive Digital Signage (IDS) family featuring multi-touch, and a small 7″ LCD display.
The new 2244L 22″ monitor features a 16:9 aspect ratio high-definition display with LED backlight technology, providing true HD interactivity for the latest gaming applications. The wide viewing angle of 178° x 178° allows colours to remain sharp and graphics to retain their integrity – which adds to the gaming pleasure – while the LED backlighting reduces power consumption and allows for slimmer dimensions enabling cabinet manufacturers to produce thinner and more aesthetically pleasing kiosk designs. The 16:9 wide-screen format displays provide for extra content on the screen and are quickly becoming preferred in casino gaming, amusement and entertainment settings due to the high-definition cinematic-like experience.
Like the 2243L, the Elo TouchSystems 2244L monitor is available with either the innovative TE Touch Solutions APR (Acoustic Pulse Recognition) or IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave touchscreen technology. These pure-glass touch solutions provide superior image quality to ensure that colours and optics of games are preserved.
As with all Elo TouchSystems products, gaming manufacturers benefit from TE Connectivity’s commitment to long product life cycles – ensuring cabinet designs do not need to change simply because a panel changes – as well as fast, high contrast panels and multiple mounting options.
Also on show will be the latest product in the Interactive Digital Signage (IDS) family – the 55″ model 5500L. This large-format touch display is useful for interactive advertising and visitor guidance in casinos and hotels and combines IntelliTouch touchscreen technology with commercial-grade, large format LCD panels in a sleek true-flat design. The 5500L will also be available with an optical touchscreen technology, which is designed to allow up to four simultaneous touches to be detected. No activation force is necessary and image quality is high while it can be touched with any type of stylus. The 5500L will also feature a LED-backlit LCD panel making it slimmer than existing models and with narrower borders.
Another novelty is a small 7″ LCD display – the Elo TouchSystems 0700L. The screen is typically applied as a second display, facing the customer in POS and retail environments. It can also be set-up to be the main display for applications requiring a small screen, for example personal gaming screens as part of a larger interactive gaming table.
The company will also be exhibiting touchmonitors with projected capacitive touchscreen technology – PCAP. Fast and sensitive response, zero-bezel design and multi-touch are some of the advantages of this technology. Also on show will be desktop monitors and all-in-one touchcomputers featuring glass-to-edge iTouch surface acoustic wave touchscreen technology, the zero-bezel version of IntelliTouch, comprising a true-flat seamless glass touchscreen.
TE Connectivity’s Elo TouchSystems is exhibiting on stand number 4252.
