Baanto Announces ShadowSense Based Touchscreen Family for Digital Signage and Large Format DOOH Applications

Extending ShadowSense(TM) touchscreen technology into large formats targeted at Digital out of Home (DOOH) and Interactive Digital Signage applications, Baanto(TM) is releasing a comprehensive multi-user / multi-touch touchscreen product family in sizes f

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Baanto International Ltd., a leading independent manufacturer of touchscreen technologies today announced the release of large format ShadowSense based products targeting the Interactive Digital Signage and DOOH markets.

The family will launch with models matched to market requirements, including: 32", 40", 42", 46", 47", 50", 55", 60", 65", 70", 80", and 85" panels. All of the products are designed to support the standard TFT LCD sizes currently available in the market and being used in commercial applications. Cost effective, and featuring advanced ShadowSense Performance Features or SPF including:

--  SPF SnapCount(TM):  
    --  Real time tracking of up to six touch points without slowing down
        the user application
--  SPF SizeAlert(TM): 
    --  Real time touch point size calculation allows developers to create
        new and innovative use models as well as implement palm and spurious
        touch rejection
--  SPF RealTouch(TM): 
    --  Responds to any IR touch object, eliminating the need for bare
        finger touching or special styli or gloves
--  SPF-10K(TM): 
    --  Provides immunity to ambient light of up to 10,000 foot-candles,
        roughly equal to being outdoors at noon on the equator.

"Large format touchscreens introduce different use models, yet user expectations are based on smart phone and tablet touch performance," stated Av Utukuri, Baanto CTO. "ShadowSense uniquely solves a challenging set of DOOH requirements, for example:"

Touch performance must be fast and responsive, yet in order to provide a positive user experience there needs to be an enhanced ability to identify spurious touch points caused by "finger dragging" and objects such as shirt sleeves, cuffs, or coats touching the screen.

Obviously, DOOH environments tend to be much more diverse than those of single user devices, so limiting touch detection to just a bare finger touch is simply unrealistic. For example, during a flu outbreak, would you rather touch a public display with your bare finger or with a gloved hand, or pen, or even an umbrella?

Lastly, imagine a display in a shopping mall. Its optimum location and orientation is fixed, so the touch system has to be able to function flawlessly regardless of the ambient lighting conditions, whether from sunlight or high intensity lighting. Yet many competitive systems stop working randomly during the day simply because of the amount of light coming in through nearby windows.

"The demand for interactivity in the Digital Signage arena is exploding," Joe Kotas, Baanto CEO, noted: "A key challenge in generating revenue for digital signage deployments is simple - show the advertisers that a campaign is working. Touch enabled displays are the most cost effective way of identifying and tracking user interaction with the ad content. Interactivity coupled with lower display prices in the 32" to 80" sizes is causing the number and diversity of deployments to increase rapidly. Baanto's new products, which include the ShadowSense Performance Features or SPF attributes, will make such deployments more reliable, more robust and much more engaging."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
