Hi,

@ ralphdas Your company is now listed!

@ rbedi100 First Thing is corrected. About SMART Technologies I’m not sure if they have or not multi-touch, Maybe someone else could help us with this information

@ jimihertz JazzMutant still working, Lemur V2 Beta is cooming soon. Stantum is now listed!

@ gsoto MultiTouch (Finland) is now listed. About Tactiva tell me if you think we must remove it from the list.

Mono,
I was reading some other forum topics, and someone had said that SmartTech’s latest product release was multi touch...website doesn’t go into detail about their technology.

Hola Andres ;

Smart do have Multitouch, they showcased their table @ IEEE Amsterdam .

Please check carefully the infos you are posting .

Bridger Maxwell don’t seem to run any company ...
Promathean Ltd, U Touch[, Foresee are not multitouch (no mention of it on their websites )
Joyplux claims that “multitouch function is available” that’s really doubtful .
Touchindia claims “ Multi-touch: Can discern two distinct touch points” that means dual touch ...
(i suspect that NEXIO is also dual touch )

and one more time Flo still not offer any multitouch app…

Could you add a location column ?

more companies on the bizniz :

INTUILAB is a French company based in Toulouse ,which provide interactive solutions, mt softs ( INTUI kit) , and FTIR table .

Archimedes
is a German Berlin based company , also providing tables (DI) and software ( tracker (libavg)and apps)

both companies runs NUIgroup members .

Lumin Visual Technologies Hardware ( seems FTIR ) and development kit Germany (near Munich)

ioangency Italia (Natural Interaction is part of IO )

Stimulant I.O
software solutions California US

Any companies in Colombia or in South America ?

Hi,

So, SMART stay on list.

Bridger: You are right, but he seems to have a client: “I have begun working on another multi-touch table, this time for the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Pleasant Grove, Utah”. Tell me if you think, we must remove him from the list, but, educational institutions could be the business target for a Multi-touch Company.

Promethean Ltd: I found this info on Wiki and Youtube:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-touch#cite_note-autogenerated1-12
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m98fWEYA0EU
Then, Promethean is Multi-Touch.

U-Touch: They use several touch techniques, one of them must be Multi-Touch. Watch this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzsCMErENcI

Foresee: They have this other website, videos with Multi-Touch apps are there.
http://www.foresee.biz/foresee_HUMANACTIVE_SPACES/foresee_HUMANACTIVE_SPACES.html

Joyplux: As we can’t test their device capabilities, I think they should be on the Multi-Touch list because they sell it in that way although their clients could be disappointed. We don’t know that.

TouchIndia and NEXIO: If they are only dual touch, they still been Multi-Touch (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Multiple). Dual-Touch devices have four degrees of freedom, that could be enough for many Multi-Touch Applications, that depends on the needs of the end user.

Flo I’ll remove him from the list.  (There aren’t MT applications companies then, that could be a service to offer!!!)

I’ll check the other companies later…

You might add http://www.intactive.de

http://www.youtube.com/v/qTwcageiJnM&hl=en&fs=1

I’m not sure if your considering this multi touch. If you do consider this multi touch then the ibar should also get a shout out. Next week I’m meeting up with the other company (http://www.satis-fy.com) that made this possible. Satis & fy also dables in multi touch.

Hola de nuevo ,

we already had some discussions about touchscreen , dual touch screen, multitouch .

You right dual is multiple but since it cannot sense more than 2 touch , the difference does matter .

So you could add a dual touch companies section ...

U-Touch: They use several touch techniques, one of them must be Multi-Touch. Watch this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzsCMErENcI

Foresee: They have this other website, videos with Multi-Touch apps are there.
http://www.foresee.biz/foresee_HUMANACTIVE_SPACES/foresee_HUMANACTIVE_SPACES.html

i checked again those links and they shows dual touch .

Joyplux: As we can’t test their device capabilities, I think they should be on the Multi-Touch list because they sell it in that way although their clients could be disappointed. We don’t know that.

It’s important that NUIgroup provides only reliable infos ...( as far as possible ). This thread could also serve as a reference list .

you could add the i-bar

and to the dual touch section : Next Window

Excellent!
I’d suggest removing the ‘links’ column and make the actual supplier clickable.

Hi Folks

We are able to supply the film material you require
to build your own professional multi touch projection products from our ICE Digital Daytime range.

Here are two videos here of ICE Dupix from our ICE Digital Daytime family of screens


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-yP3c_mgCA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waTDzCth1Hw
The most cost efficient way for us to cut and supply is 800mm x 500mm sheets.

The raw material is available with a width of 1.6m or 2m for larger projects. Roll lengths of up to 30m.
The touch screen we created for Hewlett Packard, Auckland was 2.4m wide. ...you can see the screen laminating and
prep on one of the videos. It uses Next Window technology who have used
ICE Dupix and our services for a few of their projects.

The smallest we supply is 800mm x 500mm ICE Dupix optical film with/without adhesive backing. (also available as non adhesive for tensioned applications)
Our screen film is a world patented film for dual imaging where you have exactly the same brightness image on both sides.
It is ideal for multi touch, traditional rear projection applications, or where the image is viewed simultaneously on both sides.

Exclusive Forum Price
Cost is $US139. To access this exclusive NUI Forum Price for ICE Dupix you will need to quote the Promo Code NUIICE001
Size 800mm x 500mm
Condition - You will supply photos, descriptive and video about your project that we can use to promote your project and multi touch concept.

Shipping via New Zealand Post to most world centres is between 4-10 days and is about $US30. If you want to get a few integrators together we can ship a number of sheets together to the same address for the one shipping fee, The foil is virtually weightless. If you need a tax invoice for imports just let me know.

Availability - immediate.

Payment
We accept direct credit via TT to the Bank of New York I various contintents and countries. Cleared funds required prior to shipping.

We don’t normally ship small pieces however for those exploring and developing multi touch products etc we are making a special exception.

We can also supply a holographic foil with a 90% transparency. ICE Holite 90, ICE HoloDual and HoloContra
We have rigid rear projection screens and membrane films as well.
For front projection multi touch projects we have a range of exclusive hight performance surfaces

Hi Kevin,
I see that the film is white.
Basically you can use any white diffusing material to get that effect as long as it is dark.

The difficult thing is to get a good picture when the room is highly illuminated. 
Then you will have a kontrast from grey to white.  Correct me if I’m wrong.
I have alternative films too but then you can choose according to your application how dark you want to have the film (of course contrast sacrifices total brightness..)
