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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
Dispersed, network connected interactive systems can be managed over the local area network. MultiTaction Site Manager enables system integrators, IT managers and content providers to manage easily a big number of dispersed, network-connected interactive systems.
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.
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.
