Multi-touch screen takes interactivity to new level

Remember the futuristic touch screen system used by Tom Cruise in Stephen Speilberg’s sci-fi blockbuster Minority Report? Well Arcstream AV is able to take your event a step closer to this kind of experlence with the launch of its Multi-Touch system, available for event hire or purchase.

Using Multi-Touch, you can create interactive presentations that resemble a giant iPhone in terms of both look and usability.

The multi-user system can be integrated into tables or designed into a large Multi-Touch wall, depending on the desired application.

The technology reacts to touch by sensing the infrared signature of fingers touching the screen surface. The result is a system that allows more than one person to manipulate images, video, 3D models and more.

Science fact: The incredible new Arcstream Multi-Touch

“The range of possible applications is endless, this type of system represents a major shift in computer interaction and presentation,” claims Arcstream’s managing director Neil Dickinson.

The movement is detected by infra-red cameras, with the screen or tabletop being flooded by an infra-red illumination system, with an optical filtering system. A PC, with application software, controls the specially designed content, beamed on a compliant projection surface. The Arcstream Multi-Touch tables and walls support a wide range of gestures, enabling you to move images, zoom in, rotate and more.

“This new system is simple to use and experience, while having a really stunning impact on an event environment,” says Dickinson. “You can use it to create interactive presentations, turn Google earth in circles with a touch or your finger, or create interactive menus and brand information for users. It has had a great response from event organisers, and we’re looking forward to starting to use it at events this year.”
