3M Touch Systems has announced availability of the 3M Multi-Touch Display M2256PW. With its 20-plus finger multi-touch input and a high-definition, wide viewing-angle LCD, the M2256PW display offers application developers full multi-touch capabilities with less than 6 millisecond response time for 20 simultaneous touches.
"With 20-plus finger multi-touch capability, the M2256PW display offers software developers an important development tool that they’ve been missing until now," says 3M's Chris Tsourides.
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 likely to utilize this interactivity include computer aided design, digital signage, computer gaming, security monitoring systems, education and training, and telepresence. The M2256PW display is compatible with Windows 7 so additional drivers are not required when using Windows 7. For Linux and Windows XP/Vista/7, 3M offers a multi-touch driver and software utility, and will offer communication protocol documents for customers who wish to develop their own drivers.
