eyevis enhances TOLED

At IBC2016, eyevis presented the variation of its new Transparent OLED (TOLED) displays with frameless glass surface and 40 simultaneous touch points.

At first sight, the EYE-TOLED-5500 looks like a large glass surface, but it is in fact a transparent display. The latest variation – EYE-TOLED-5500-TGIF40 – combines this innovative display with the state of the art InGlass touch technology by Flatfrog, a Swedish company in the field of touch technology.

InGlass implements 40 simultaneous and highly reliable touch points, which allow for working on multiple interactive elements at the same time. InGlass enables a homogeneous glass surface without noticeable bezels as seen in IR systems, and without a visible metal mesh as used in PCAP and PCT touch systems.

“With any other touch technology, we would have needed to add a conspicuous frame to the EYE-TOLED-5500. The high quality InGlass touch surface without a protruding frame, on the other hand, further enhances the display,“ explained Joachim Vollmer, eyevis product manager for displays.

Thanks to the high resolution of touch recognition, writing remains detailed and easy to work with, even when using very fine input pens. Yet another strong suit of the InGlass touch surface is wipe effects from the frame towards the centre, which are often problematic for other touch technologies.
