3M Touch Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M and a leading innovator and manufacturer of touch screen technology, today announces that CI Lumen Industries will offer large-format interactive displays integrated with 3M MicroTouch DST touch technology. CI Lumen plans a complete offering of interactive LCD displays and all-in-one computer displays in sizes ranging from 32” to 46”.
“3M is pleased to support CI Lumen’s effort to deliver high-quality, interactive digital signage solutions,” said Chris Tsourides, Business Unit Manager, 3M Touch Systems. “Using our MicroTouch DST touch technology, CI Lumen now provides convenient and easy-to-use interactive displays in a wide range of sizes for most public environments.”
Based on 3M’s patented Dispersive Signal Technology (DST), MicroTouch DST touch systems offer display integrators an ideal solution for large-format interactive applications that require fast, accurate, reliable touch response. Other unique features include operation unaffected by surface contaminants and “dynamic touch”, which ignores static objects on the screen and allows for multi-user touch capabilities.
“CI Lumen selected 3M Touch Systems technology after evaluating all available large-format touch technologies,” said Paul Kline, Executive Vice President, CI Lumen. “We wanted a touch solution that integrates easily with our preferred LCD products and provided unique touch features for our customers and their users.”
Dispersive Signal Technology recognizes touch by interpreting bending waves within the glass substrate created by the contact of a finger or stylus on the glass. Since bending waves are unaffected by on-screen contaminants and moderate surface damage, DST touch screens are well suited for applications, such as interactive digital signage, public way finders, point-of-information stations, corporate directories, retail product selectors, as well as conference room and education presentation systems.
