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.
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.
Ipad tree 3 display post
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.
