Multi-touch is becoming a standard in consumer and commercial desktop computing
Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
NextWindow, the leading manufacturer of optical touch screens, released TruRange® technology today. TruRange® accurately resolves multiple simultaneous touches on screen, allowing users to engage in true multi-touch functionality.
In addition to traditional single-touch functions, such as drag-and-drop, TruRange® provides real-time multi-touch data that can be interpreted as two-finger gestures such as pan, pinch, rotate and scroll, along with many other multi-touch functions used in gaming and entertainment programs.
"Multi-touch is becoming a standard in consumer and commercial desktop computing" said Al Monro, CEO of NextWindow. "TruRange® is an attractive solution for these markets since it provides highly accurate multi-touch at a low cost."
OEMs have already started placing orders for NextWindow's latest products incorporating TruRange®. TruRange® is ideal for screens above 15" and is designed for high-volume manufacturing, thus providing a truly cost effective solution.
TruRange® will be WHQL certified for Windows 7, Microsoft's next operating system.
