3M Revolutionizes Multi-touch Interactivity with 10-Finger Touch
|the 3M Display M2256PW, a 22-inch high-definition, multi-touch LCD display which demonstrates 3M's commitment to push the boundaries of traditional touch technology. Based on 3M Projected Capacitive Technology, the M2256PW display is designed for professional and prosumer (professional consumer) applications that need up to 10-finger touch input or multiuser interactivity with very fast response time. While most multi-touch technologies support two-finger touch and gestures, 3M's multi-touch technology supports 10-finger touch input and advanced gesture capability.
The 3M Display M2256PW features a high-definition 1680 x 1050 LCD screen, DVI and VGA video input, audio input, USB and RS232 (serial) dual-mode communication protocol and durable, anti-glare front surface. Applications taking advantage of this high level of interactivity include computer aided design, digital signage, computer gaming, security monitoring systems, education and training, and teleconferencing. The M2256PW display is "compatible with Windows 7" so no third party touch drivers are required. For Linux and Windows XP/Vista/7 operating systems, 3M plans to offer a multi-touch driver and software utility, and will offer communication protocol documents for customers who wish to develop their own drivers.
