Cornerstone 2 is available now for free download.

"Our 84" MultiTaction Cell prototype represents a giant leap not just in screen size but in resolution too," explains Hannu Anttila, VP of Business Development at MultiTouch. "Customers who take advantage of the pre-ordering programme will not only be among the first to benefit from this ground-breaking technology, but will also be able to purchase the complete package at a discount of more than 20%."

The pre-order package includes a built-in 4K application PC, MultiTaction 'experience app' with example 4K content, a support agreement, a floor mount trolley with wheels, and all necessary transport cases.
