Using Hybrid Tracking, MULTITACTION provides the first optical multi-touch technology immune to external lighting conditions.
The Extensible Hybrid Tracking Engine 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 spot lights. EHTE will then process the two images together to capture all possible detail and apply the computer vision algorithms to detect touches and objects as usual.
MultiTaction displays support unlimited touch points. Multiple users can use the displays simultaneously with their both hands. That makes a clear difference to dual- and single-touch displays.
That allows the client to implement remarkably richer set of interactions. It also allows the client to track multiple users even if they interact close to – or reach across – one another. That is crucial in large scale installations.
With the new technology, Enriched Reality™, MultiTouch’s MultiTaction series of displays are able to detect every object that interacts or is placed on the system.
The MultiTaction IR Pen software will enable users to write, draw, sketch, and brainstorm designs and words on MultiTaction Cell displays using most IR pens, and to distinguish clearly between pen and touch interactions.
You can set up a single display as a wall or as a table or incline it to any position. By stacking modular MultiTaction displays, you can also create walls and table or any size and shape.
MultiTaction UTB´s bezel width is only 1.9 mm / 0.07 inches (bottom and left side) and 3.8 mm / 0.15 (top and right side) making it ideal for large walls.
The MultiTaction Site Manager enables system integrators, IT managers and content providers to manage thousands of globally dispersed, network connected interactive systems.

It works natively on a range of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.
In addition to MultiTouch Cornerstone SDK, MultiTaction Cells 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 multitouch software suites, such as Snowflake, GestureWorks, OmniTapps, Intuiface, and SoTouch can be used.
