3M Touch Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M and a leading innovator and manufacturer of touch technology, today announces that Bi-Search International (BSI), a leading LG Displays solutions provider and OEM display component supplier, will offer interactive displays integrated with 3M MicroTouch™ DST touch systems in screen sizes ranging from 32” to 46”.
As one of LG’s largest display integrators, BSI is uniquely positioned to introduce DST to an expanded group of customers and help make MicroTouch DST the preferred touch technology for large-screen displays,” said Chris Tsourides, business unit manager, 3M Touch Systems. “In addition, BSI’s experience in providing device manufacturers with embedded touch solutions will enable DST to serve applications across multiple vertical markets.”
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.
“MicroTouch DST has many unique technology features not found in other large-screen touch technologies which we feel meets or exceeds the needs of our customers,” said Ken Pietrowski, Director of Sales, Bi-Search International.
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 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.
