Interactive Touchscreen with integrated Gestural Camera at
the DSE (Digital Signage Expo) show. This is the first fullyinteractive
Touchscreen that is designed for use in outdoor
environments, in direct sunlight and is mounted on MRI's
proven BoldVu® 72" High-Bright Digital LCD Display for
ambient temperatures up to 50° C / 122° F.
The InfiniteTouch™ 72" Touchscreen provides the same
functionally as an iPad or iPhone but also allows for multiple
applications to be open at the same time and controlled
independently by several users. This additional functionality
increases dramatically the potential for advertising /
promotional campaigns and informational uses such as
According to Peter Kaszycki, VP of Business Development
for MRI, "The best way to envision how this new technology works is to remember the Tom Cruise movie 'Minority
Report' where he was able to easily manipulate multiple virtual displays at the same time, zoom in / out, rotate them
and swipe them on / off the field of vision. This is a life-size iPad…on steroids…with tremendous potential for Apps
and Ads alike."
First production units will be available late in the second quarter of 2012 as an option for MRI's BoldVu® 72" Digital
LCD Displays. Smaller sizes are under deployment for 55" and 47" LCDs. The first projected deployments will be in
Bus Shelters with 72" Outdoor Displays in San Francisco, Paris, Sao Paulo and London.
MRI is an Atlanta based designer and manufacturer of Digital LCD Displays (22" - 72"), Digital Menu Boards, Pump-Top
Displays, and Self-Ordering Kiosks. The BoldVu® product line encompasses both indoor and outdoor configurations
and includes unique features such as BrightVu® (2000 nit brightness), SureVu® (image verification), CoolVu® (for
operation in direct sunlight combined with ambient temperatures up to 50°C or 122°F), and SAM® (service access
modules) to provide a low cost of ownership with optimum functionality. MRI has an installed base of 9300+ units
and offers both standard and custom hardware/technology designs to meet the specific application requirements.

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
