GestureTek Systems Inc. has been made the exclusive distributor for DISPLAX Interactive Systems' Skin Multi-touch product for the U.S. and Canada.
According to the company, this product is a thin transparent film that can be placed on glass, windows, monitors or virtually any surface to allow that surface to enable multi-touch interaction by one or more users. The Skin Multi-touch product has three modes of multi-touch capability: Dual-, 6- and 12-touch interactivity modes.
GestureTek said the Skin Multi-touch product fits well into its portfolio and gives the company the added ability to deliver multi-touch to a whole new section of the market and set of locations. Skin Multi-touch can turn custom installations of large flat screens into multi-touch screens and can be applied to tables, kiosks and other structures. Skin Multi-touch is also suited for turning windows into multi-touch surfaces so that storefronts can now offer this capability to patrons.
"We are very happy that DISPLAX has chosen GestureTek to be the distributor of this innovative new product in North America," said Vincent John Vincent, CEO and co-founder, and Erol Vekil, president and sales executive of Toronto-based GestureTek. "GestureTek is pleased to continue its history of deploying state of the art multi-touch technology in the digital signage/public display and health markets. We look forward to what this will offer our resellers and customers in the growing markets for dynamic multi-touch interactivity."
"We rely on technology-savvy partners to distribute our products locally and develop cutting-edge projects," said Miguel Fonseca, founder and CEO of DISPLAX. "GestureTek is undoubtedly a reference in the interactivity sector, with a world-class portfolio of projects and we are thrilled to be working with them."
