Key MultiTaction Benefits

MultiTaction displays are the most advanced interactive displays commercially available.


Use with hands, objects, 2D bar codes and IR pens

MultiTaction technology identifies hands rather than points of contact only. This allows the client to implement a richer set of interactions. It also allows the client to track multiple users even if they interact close to or reach across one another.

With Enriched Reality™ technology, MultiTouch’s MultiTaction displays are able to detect every object and 2D bar code that interacts with or is placed on the system.



MultiTaction IR Pen support enables users to write, draw, sketch, and brainstorm designs and words on MultiTaction displays using most IR pens, and to distinguish clearly between pen and touch interactions.

Unlimited number of users

keyb_unlimited_number_of_users

All MultiTaction displays support an unlimited number of touch points. Multiple users can use the displays simultaneously with both hands. While other multitouch techniques merely see points of contact, MultiTaction technology identifies both hands. This makes a clear difference to dual- and single-touch displays. It also allows the client to track multiple users at the same time – crucial for large-scale installations.

Any size and any shape

MultiTaction displays can be combined to create interactive multi-user walls and tables of any size and shape. You can, for instance, set up a single display as a wall or as a table, and incline it to any position. By stacking modular MultiTaction displays, you can also create enormous walls and tables. The sky’s the limit!

Superior picture quality

The picture quality of MultiTaction displays is second to none. We deliver top-quality Full HD LCD screens. There are no additional layers on the top of the display that would blur, distort or dull display brightness

Ultra thin bezel

MultiTaction displays are available with ultra thin bezels for large combinations of displays (MultiTaction iWalls). The bezel width is only 1.9 mm / 0.07 inches (bottom and left side) and 3.8 mm / 0.15 (top and right side), ideal when combining multiple displays.

Immune to external light

keyb_immune_to_external_light

MultiTaction provides optical multi-touch technology immune to external lighting conditions. The Extensible Hybrid Tracking Engine (EHTE) can be configured to use the active IR on every other frame to capture reflections and passive ambient light for every other frame to capture shadows. This is highly useful when the environment has powerful infrared light sources such as sunlight or halogen spotlights. EHTE processes the two images together to capture all possible detail and applys the computer vision algorithms to detect touches and objects as usual.

Remote management

Dispersed, network connected interactive systems can be managed remotely. MultiTaction Site Manager enables system integrators, IT managers and content providers to manage thousands of globally dispersed, network-connected interactive systems.

Any operating system

keyb_any_operating_system

MultiTouch Ltd develops technology to work across all the major platforms. It works natively on a range of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.

Any development platform

keyb_any_development_platform

In addition to MultiTouch Cornerstone SDK, you can work with a third party development platform or use commercial multitouch software suites. MultiTaction displays provide standard touch data outputs in TUIO, XML or Windows Touch formats. Any third party development platform can be used, including WPF, Flash, Java, VVVV, OpenFrameworks, PyMT, Unity3D, MAX/MSP. In addition, most commercial multi-touch software suites, such as Snowflake, GestureWorks, OmniTapps, Intuiface, and SoTouch can be used.
