TROY (WWJ) — TouchIT Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: TUCN) a manufacturer of touch-based visual communication products, announced the launch of a new range of four-point multi-touch LEDs specifically designed to capitalize on the increasing numbers of Apple Macintosh users in both the education and corporate market.
The new range of LEDs support many of the Apple Mac trackpad gestures allowing the Mac user to benefit from multi-touch gesture input in OS X directly from the LED screen.
“We’ve supported multi-touch gesturing under MS Windows since we launched the Duo range of LCD last year and our new 4 point touch LED models will also support this,” said Andi Brabin, CEO at TouchIT Technologies. “Mac is an area where we have seen increasing demand for better hardware support from our users and we think that they will really like the new gestures we have integrated. It’s an area where we believe we can have an advantage over our competitors.”
The world-wide interactive display market is a growing market estimated by Futuresource Consulting UK Ltd to be valued at $1.76 billion by 2015, with more than a million interactive displays forecast to be sold. Microsoft continues the expansion of its touch input orientated operating system, Windows 8, which is fully supported under the current 2 point and new 4 point range of Interactive LEDs from TouchIT Technologies.
The new range of 4 point touch LEDs, available in sizes from 46 to 80 inches, is available now and is already shipping to Australia and the Middle East. The roll out to Europe and the United States will take place in July this year.
