Touch Displays & Panels
Touch display technology has come a long way since 1982 at the University of Toronto and in 1986 when it’s Atari demonstrated the first commercial application at the COMDEX show. Today touch technology is so common we literally take it for granted; whether it’s on our smartphone or the dashboard of our cars. However, when you’re building an application or developing a system that depends on a touch graphical user interface or GUI, you must be exacting. Today there are multiple types of Touch Screens. The five most common types are: 5-Wire Resistive, Surface Capacitive, Projected Capacitive, SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave), and Infrared. “Multi-touch” allows any of these technologies to have multiple points of contact; to affect or control the screen or devices connected to it. Careful consideration should be paid to the environment and audience contact being made to the screens. Whether the application is digital signage, wayfinding, system control or point of sale, the owner must pay careful attention to the evolving technology of these devices in the current market.
