Displax Interactive Solutions, leading manufacturer of interactive technologies for commercial use, expands its portfolio of touch-enabled products with Oqtopus, a portable all-in-one multitouch table based on Microsoft Windows 7 that can detect up to four independent touches on a 42-inch screen. In addition, Displax introduces the Displax Overlay Multitouch, a customizable overlay that turns LCD, Plasma or rear projection screens, in sizes ranging from 32 inches to 103 inches, into a multitouch surface.

The demand for commercial multitouch solutions has been increasing constantly over the past year. By building on strong partnerships to offer Oqtopus and Overlay Multitouch, Displax is able to meet this demand with simple yet effective solutions to present content in an innovative and intuitive way. "As an expert on interactive technologies, customers have approached us in search for a product that is portable, easy to install, inexpensive, and can handle a limited amount of touches," explains Miguel Fonseca, Chief Business Officer of Displax. "While we are finalizing our powerful Displax Multitouch Technology to be available to the market soon, we have decided to cooperate with strong Research & Development partners to be able to immediately offer our customers compelling products that meet their requirements."

Displax Oqtopus, an elegant yet robust black and white table, is able to individually process four input signals, for example, to simultaneously recognize the handwriting of four users. The plug-and-play solution also allows users to take full advantage of the touch capabilities of Windows 7 when interacting with multimedia applications and content like videos, games and images. The optical technology lets users use various pointing devices like a stylus or their fingers – even a gloved hand works well – to operate the table. No pressure is needed to create an input signal, providing fast and accurate touch inputs.

Displax Oqtopus comes complete with integrated optical multitouch technology and a tempered glass top. Options include a PC or a 42-inch HD LCD screen. The multitouch table is portable and can be easily moved and installed anywhere – making it an ideal choice for museums, retail and educational purposes or even for use in boardrooms.

Displax Oqtopus is available for prices ranging from 4,500 Euros for the basic edition to 6,500 Euros for the complete solution including an LCD and a PC. The Displax Overlay Multitouch comes at prices ranging from 1,300 Euros to 6,000 Euros.
