SEATTLE, USA: Elo TouchSystems, a Tyco Electronics (NYSE: TEL) business, has launched at SID 2010 a new line of Interactive Digital Signage (IDS) touch systems designed to drive significant opportunities for digital display applications and development.
The new IDS portfolio – which combines precision acoustic pulse recognition touch screen technology with commercial-grade, large format LCD panels – offers System Integrators, Value-Added Resellers and Software Developers a high-performance solution for the interactive enablement of large-scale digital displays in high-traffic environments.
Interactivity that works
The new Elo TouchSystems IDS portfolio offers the digital signage market a unique industry solution: the only display system to incorporate zero-bezel, edge-to-edge glass touch-screen technology into large-format, ruggedized panels specifically built for commercial environments.
The responsive Elo TouchSystems acoustic pulse recognition (APR) touch technology – which promises consistent, resilient touch functionality – is housed in a highly durable, aluminum chassis to ensure reliable interactivity and performance in almost any public-access location. Optional computer modules further optimize media bandwidth and interactivity for the delivery of highly engaging and measurable consumer content.

"Elo considers touch functionality the next wave of consumer engagement and targeted out-of-home messaging – and we believe that our IDS portfolio will significantly drive this evolution in the digital signage market by accelerating our channel partners' adoption and competitive advantage."
