3M Launches New Line of Dual-Touch Chassis Displays

- New 15", 17" and 19" displays ideal for kiosk applications offering gesture-based user interfaces -

METHUEN, Mass.--As kiosk user interfaces evolve to satisfy the gesture-based interface expectations of smart phone and tablet users, 3M Touch Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M Company, announces the availability of three 3M Dual-Touch Chassis Displays - 15-, 17- and 19-inches - that provide kiosk and enclosure manufacturers with a responsive, durable dual-touch display solution for heavy-use public environments. These robust projected capacitive interactive displays meet the requirements of a one-user, gesture-based interface by supporting common gestures such as flick, pan, zoom and rotate. Add the durability of its metal housing, chemically-strengthened glass, anti-glare surface, and easy-to-integrate flat front surface design and kiosk manufacturers now have the ideal interactive display for upcoming kiosk programs or upgrading existing installations.


"The traditional single-touch kiosk interface is evolving to a gesture-based interface as users expect these public access devices to respond like their personal devices," says Diego Romeu, business operations manager, 3M Touch Systems. "To help kiosk integrators satisfy these evolving user preferences, 3M offers this new line of robust, kiosk-ready dual-touch displays as an ideal solution for gesture-based user interfaces."

The 3M Dual-Touch Chassis Display product line includes the 15" 3M Dual-Touch Display C1510PS (4:3 aspect ratio), 17" 3M Dual-Touch Display C1710PS (5:4 aspect ratio) and 19" 3M Dual-Touch Display C1910PS (5:4 aspect ratio).

These 3M Dual-Touch Chassis Displays are based on projected capacitive technology - the same touch technology found in smart phones and tablets -- and are designed to be bezel free and easily integrated to create a flat front surface in a kiosk enclosures. These displays plug and play with the dual-touch capabilities built into Windows 7 and other popular programming languages.

All 3M Dual-Touch Chassis Displays are available from leading U.S. distributors (BlueStar, Ingram Micro, ScanSource, SYNNEX, and Tech Data), popular on-line retailers, and 3M's on-line store, www.Shop3M.com.
