Touch International’s Multi-Touch Technology takes Electronica 2010 by Storm

MARS Technology displayed at Electronica 2010Austin, TX – November 2, 2010 – Global touch screen manufacturer, Touch International, and German-based touch screen distributor, Zabel, announced their partnership today to exhibit Touch International’s Multi-Touch Resistive (MARS) Technology at Electronica 2010 in Munich, Germany, November 9-12.

“Historically, resistive touch technology has been used in a variety of applications due to its proven durability and relatively low cost. Now current applications using resistive touch screens can easily be upgraded with this cutting-edge, multi-touch technology,” explains Kelvin Tran, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Touch International. “We are excited to introduce our resistive multi-touch technology to the rest of the world.”

Available for demonstration at Electronica 2010 in booth 253, hall 5B, this multi-touch resistive technology is offered in a 10.4” developer kit which allows users to test-drive the technology and streamline the product development process. Featuring superior drift-free performance and a fast and accurate response time, the MARS developer kit supports up to 10-finger touch with true touch gesture and palm rejection. Accepting input with bare or gloved fingers and any pointing device, this multi-touch technology is ideal for applications in the military, aerospace, industrial and retail fields.
