3M Touch Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M and a leading innovator
and manufacturer of touch technology, today announces that long-time touch solutions
provider, Trident Systems Inc., will offer interactive signage displays integrated
with 3M MicroTouch™ DST touch technology in screen sizes ranging from 32” to 46”.
“Trident Systems has been offering touch solutions for nearly 20 years, so we are
very pleased that a company with their extensive touch experience has chosen our
MicroTouch DST solution to meet the demanding needs of their customers’,” said Chris
Tsourides, business unit manager, 3M Touch Systems.
Based on 3M’s patented Dispersive Signal Technology (DST), MicroTouch DST touch
systems offer display integrators an ideal solution for large-screen 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.
“After almost two decades of providing touch solutions to a wide array of markets,
we see DST as a truly unique touch interface that will provide our customers with
the robust touch display they need for their large-screen interactive signage applications,”
said Gary Mundrake, VP Integrated Systems Production Division, Trident Systems.
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 onscreen contaminants and surface scratches, 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.
