New 3M Multi-Touch Display C3266PW combines ultra-fast 10-finger touch response with high-definition 1080p display in robust metal chassis
HANOVER, Germany, March 1, 2011 – 3M Touch Systems Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M, launched today at CeBIT 2011 in Hanover, Germany, the 3M Multi-Touch Display C3266PW, a 32-inch full multi-touch chassis display. Designed for multi-user applications, the C3266PW display combines 3M Projected Capacitive Technology's (3M PCT) 10-finger multi-touch capabilities with an ultra-wide viewing angle, high-definition 1080p LCD display in a robust metal housing. Ideal for a variety of interactive table and wall solutions, the 32-inch chassis provides system integrators with a high performance, easy to integrate, and rugged display to help create the optimal multi-user experience. The C3266PW display is currently scheduled for availability in Q2 2011.
"The C3266PW chassis is the first 3M multi-touch display designed to satisfy the size requirements of multiple user applications," says Chris Tsourides, business manager, 3M Touch Systems. "This 32" chassis is ideal for applications where multiple users will be accessing on-screen content simultaneously and for developers building compact table or wall products."
3M PCT is used in the C3266PW chassis display for ultra-fast and accurate response that tracks 10 simultaneous touch events at less than 12 millisecond response speed. With more than 6,000 discrete sensing locations (on a 32-inch 3M PCT sensor) this full multi-touch display helps create a more natural interactive experience for users seeking an enlarged touch area or applications for multiple users. The 3M PCT sensor's anti-stiction coating further enhances users' experience by enabling their fingers to glide effortlessly across the glass surface while maintaining positive contact with the screen. The 3M PCT system has passed Windows 7AQ for more than 10 touch points. 3M offers MT7 drivers for Windows XP and Linux operating systems.
The C3266PW LCD display offers an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle (horizontal/vertical) which is ideal for off-axis viewing and multi-user table configurations. The thin profile metal chassis housing is 2.6 inches (66.8 mm) deep with a 200 mm VESA mounting pattern and offers a metal bezel for a finished appearance or that can be removed for integration in to flat front surface tables and walls.
The 3M Multi-Touch Display C3266PW chassis is part of a growing product line of 3M PCT multi-touch displays, including the 22" 3M Multi-Touch Display M2256PW desktop and 22" 3M Multi-Touch Display C2254PW chassis.
