Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America’s Touch Screen Overlays Bring Interactivity to Professional LCD Monitors
IRVINE, Calif., June 15, 2011- (Virtual Press Office) — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. adds interactivity to its professional LCD monitor line with touch screen overlays from Assist Company, Ltd. These overlays are high-quality touch panels which are custom-built to fit perfectly on the Mitsubishi MDT521S 52-inch and MDT651S 65-inch monitors. Both are designed with precision to maintain image integrity while bringing highly responsive single-touch and multi-touch interactivity to its MDT521S and MDT651S LCD monitors.
These new multi-touch overlays will be on display in Mitsubishi’s booth at InfoComm in Orlando, June 15-17, 2011 in Booth #3400.
The new overlays recognize the presence of up to four points of contact on the surface. This multi-point awareness adds advanced functionality that enables simple gestures, such as a pinch, to zoom. They can also be used to activate predefined programs with a click, drag, double-click or right-click simply by touching the screen.
“These new overlays add a complex level of functionality in a simple, easy-to-install, cost effective overlay, which is important to many of our end users,” said Brandon Tarnow, brand manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc.
Using a simple USB connection, the screen overlays transform Mitsubishi’s monitors into interactive tools used for message boards, way-finding, gaming, digital signage, information kiosks, and other applications found in classrooms, boardrooms, hotels, airports, museums, malls and universities. Users can write or move onscreen objects with a stylus, finger or other touch device.
The new, economical overlays are very easy to install over a Mitsubishi 52-inch or 65-inch monitor, and can be purchased separately or as a bundle. Monitor bundles with individual overlays, M521-AST and M651-AST (for 52-inch and 65-inch monitors respectively), and each individual overlay TC-52MM-US and TC-65MM-US (for 52-inch and 65-inch monitors respectively), are currently available now through authorized Mitsubishi dealers; the multi-touch will ship in the next few months.
The overlays are competitively priced, covered for three years by Mitsubishi’s limited warranty, and backed with an advanced express replacement program that allows for convenient servicing and replacement at a customer’s designated schedule.
“Mitsubishi continues to offer our dealers and end-users economical yet technologically advanced products,” said James Chan, senior director, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “It’s an exciting time to be in our industry.”
