Multi-Touch Drivers for MAC OS Touch Screens

Multi-Touch Drivers for MAC OS Touch Screens

Almost any touch monitor will plug n play even on a MAC but will it offer Multi-Touch gestures? Or will it allow for image rotation, Probably No. Multi-Touch capability is possible using a TouchBase driver from Black Cat Displays. The TouchBase driver provides all the gestures you’d expect along with programming features such TUIO and API, a common interface supporting an ever expanding list of touch screen manufacturers allows easy integration and support.

Evaluation drivers are available for testing so you can try before you buy.

Museum Touch Screens Design Build Replace

Museum Touch Screens Design Build Replace.

Black Cat Displays provide Museum Touch Screens to fit new builds or replace existing builds working from architects drawings or service engineers notes we can provide drop in replace units.

Black Cat will also repair ageing Winmate, Winsonic and Elo touch monitors or provide drop in replacements if the repair is not possible. Most interactive touch screens are expected to be in service for 10 years but the reality is that most last around 5 years before a mid-term replacement is needed which  proves difficult as the LCD components often go obsolete. Have no fear Black Cat can in most cases source the original panels and build/replace around.

Here at Black Cat Displays we’ve developed a novel approach to easy access for all in the form of an ipad tree 3. The post was designed for a brand new visitor centre on the edge of Houghton Hall Park. Black Cat Displays have also created two wall mount displays powered by Mac Mini’s on Houghton Hall Park’s feature wall. The applications provide information on the wildlife and surroundings, credit goes to Cipher Arts for excellent interactive software.

Touch Screen Kiosks in Church

Our aim is provide a solution to meet our customers needs and we can demonstrate this in the solution provided to Great St Mary’s Church in Cambridge. The church asked us to design a interactive touch screen kiosk to fit and match their surroundings and provide information to large number of visitors. Cipher Arts designed an application to relay the history of the church. The kiosk’s are attracting more people into the church and already proving popular.

RackMount Chassis Display CRT Replacements

Want to spruce up your touch screen technology and join the interactive evolution?

Replacing old Cathode Ray Tube (C.R.T) units for new ones is not something we get asked to do every day, but when you consider that most C.R.T units have an average life span of 15 to 20 years – there’s an opportunity to give existing units (if you have one) a new lease of life.

At Black Cat Displays we have taken full advantage of this to produce a re-modelled Rack Mount Chassis Display solution with LED Backlit panels to fit in a standard 19 inch rack. Giving what was once an old aged piece of technology a sleek finish. This solution would be installed in Control Room environments to monitor exhibits via CCTV in a museum as well as equally complimenting broadcast and military monitoring applications.

Black Cat Displays provide bespoke solutions, no matter how big or small a job, so to discuss new or existing installations give us call on +44 (0)1256 889400.

Winmate-Winsonic Chassis Touch Screen Replacements

What happens when the chassis touch screen installed in to a custom enclosure/set works fails and there is no direct replacement available from the manufacturer?

Black Cat Displays to the rescue, we will design replacement that fits existing set works or custom enclosures and when there is no direct replacement we will do our best to provide a solution to the problem.

If it’s open frame, closed frame, rack-mount, with touch screen or without touch screen you can expect a quality product that will extend the life of your gallery or installation.

Optically Bonded Through Glass Multi-Touch

Taking touch a step forward Black Cat has produced a full HD 22 Inch Optically Bonded Through Glass Multi-Touch display that gives  optimal image clarity and a flush feel to the touch. The unit can be dropped in level with the surface eliminating the need for a custom fascia or special mounting arrangements.

The front is anti-reflective safety glass with a back painted border available in a range of colours, branding and other designs. The size of the screen provides enough space to provide information without the constant need to turn the page to get more and although the screen is multi-touch, it can be used as an enhancement not a necessity.

Once again Black Cat has chosen the screen carefully so that it can be used in portrait or landscape.
