MultiTouch announces immediate availability of Site Manager tool

Solution offers remote management of interactive displays

MultiTouch Ltd, the world leader in interactive display systems, has announced the launch of MultiTaction® Site Manager, a tool that provides remote access to interactive display installations and allowing central and secure control of multiple installations. Available for demo at ISE 2014, hall 11, stand N50, MultiTaction® Site Manager is the first application offered by MultiTouch for system management. It addresses the most critical requirements effectively and lays the foundation on which to meet the constantly evolving requirements for control and system management.


"We're delighted to say that interactive display installations using MultiTaction® Cells are becoming bigger, incorporating multiple units across many physical locations, and becoming increasingly more business critical," explains Hannu Anttila, vice president of business development at MultiTouch Ltd. "We needed to find a cost-effective way of minimising onsite support while maximising system availability; Site Manager is that solution."

MultiTaction® Site Manager is an application that connects to any number of MultiTaction® Cells and application computers to enable effective setup and control of multi-touch installations. Its role is to aid systems integrators, IT managers and content providers during the whole deployment life-cycle. Not only does Site Manager facilitate the setup of new installations and the configuration of new and existing installations, but it is also a means of monitoring and controlling applications, updating content, and performing colour calibration.

Site Manager is scalable in that it can be used to control any number of installations, from a simple single-display to large interactive walls. It can be used from several computers simultaneously. For example, a field engineer can use a laptop to configure installations while an administrator uses a desktop PC to monitor a range of installations at the same time. In yet another location, a content provider can test new graphics on a test system, and then roll out the new content on all the installations at once.

The first in a range of management applications, MultiTaction® Site Manager is part of the MultiTaction® Management Suite. The growing size and business criticality of interactive display installations has given further boost to addressing the clear requirements for easier setup, 24/7 operation and other professional installation needs.
