New products will include a commercial touch screen monitor line to serve POS, POP and POI kiosks in retail, conference centers, hospitality, and gaming.

The TSC Capacitive and TSR 5-wire resistive touch screen monitors lines will be available in 15", 17" and 19" TFT LCD and also available in commercial open-frame models to serve systems integrators and value added resellers (VARS).

3M touch screen technology will also be incorporated into the industrial display line including the PM series, IP65 compliant industrial panel mount LCD displays, the OC series industrial open-chassis displays and high brightness sun-light readable displays for use in rugged and harsh environments in military, marine, industrial automation, and public display applications.
