We have teamed up with Baanto International to bring to you a NEW revolutionary optical 2D & 3D multi-touch technology that has been dubbed a potential 'game changer' for the medium-large size touch industry. This rugged application delivers reponsive and highly accurate multi-touch recognition at costs associated with single-touch solutions, as well as supporting 5 simultaneous inputs of any input type!
The new European partnership supports andersDX’s commitment to optimsing user experience through device interfaces by combining their core display, embedded computing and GUI competencies and solutions with Baanto’s innovative ShadowSense™ multi-touch technology. Working together, the two companies will provide kiosk, gaming, PC, industrial, medical and other designs with high-performance, accurate, robust and low-cost multi-touch interfaces which utilize innovative next generation GUI’s.
ShadowSense™ is a revolutionary new 2D and 3D optical tracking technology that is billed as a ‘potential game-changer’ for the rapidly growing medium to large size touch industry. Delivering responsive (less than 6ms) and highly accurate multi-touch and gesture recognition, at costs typically associated with single-touch solutions, ShadowSense currently supports up to four simultaneous inputs, provides touch detection of small objects, whilst being able to recognize accidental touches and unlike other technologies such as PCAP, Shadowsense™ supports any input type including finger, glove, stylus etc
ShadowSense™ is a perimeter-based optical touch technology in which the touch sensor LEDs are integrated into a bezel. These LEDs are independent of the glass surface, allowing any glass to be used to provide a protective window and ensuring very high levels of light transmission. Using ShadowSense™ OEMs and integrators can build brighter touch displays that provide vandal-resistant operation and immunity to casual scratches and debris on the screen. Bezel heights can be as low as 1.5mm, while IP65 sealing provides protection against dust and moisture intrusion.
andersDX CEO Rob Anders says: Product success comes from applying cutting edge technology to enable rich and usable interface experiences. Baanto’s Shadowsense™ is a game changer in the rapidly growing touch market , both technically and commercially and we are excited to implement it across a wide portfolio of vertical market applications across Europe’ “
Joe Kotas, CEO of Baanto International, adds: “Not only is Anders an extremely experienced and respected User Interface specialist with a significant channel, but their focus on enabling usable, next generation product experiences makes them a perfect strategic fit with the capabilities of ShadowSense™ optical touch technology”
The first product to result from the partnership between andersDX and Baanto will be a 19” open frame multi-touch, industrial chassis monitor, with all in one multitouch PC’s to follow, leveraging the award winning, ultra-compact, ultra low-power FitPC boxed computers.
