MultiTouch Announces SUR40 Migration Guide for Users, Developers and Integrators

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2013) - MultiTouch Ltd., a world leader in interactive display systems, announces that it has released a 'Migration Guide for SUR40/Pixelsense Users to MultiTaction' at InfoComm 2013 taking place in Orlando, Florida, at booth number 4781. The company will feature live demonstrations of existing native SUR40 applications that can run on MultiTaction Cell displays as well as step-by-step guide for developers and integrators to optimize their applications for the new platform.

The Migration Guide for SUR40/Pixelsense Users to MultiTaction is a comprehensive documentation for software developers with applications already launched on SUR40 displays. The guide addresses a number of issues varying from total protection of external lighting conditions to the use of real-life objects and optical markers on MultiTaction Cells.

"MultiTouch displays have supported Windows Touch and other applications created with Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) since 2010. We developed this formal guide to help explain what running these two platforms together or switching to MultiTaction means to SUR40 clients and developers," said Timo Korpela, general manager at MultiTouch. "I'm sure a lot of people are happy to see the need for a canopy eliminated, and this guide will comprehensively tackle all aspects of both the physical installation and application development."

MultiTaction Cells and SUR40 are the only interactive displays in the market that support the use of optical markers and real-life objects to deliver content and interaction with the displays. "Porting the current applications to MultiTaction, as far as optical markers and blob tracking are concerned, is quite trivial to application developers," said Hannu Anttila, vice president of business development at MultiTouch. "MultiTouch has long been a big proponent of industry standards; using the TUIO interface to deliver optical marker information to applications is well documented and established in the industry."

"Our goal is to make the migration from SUR40 to MultiTaction as easy as possible for the hundreds of application developers out there," said Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch. "We are quite confident that the feature set that we offer on the MultiTaction platform will be very well received by developers and integrators and we want to provide them with the necessary tools to do business on our platform. We also hope that existing SUR40 resellers will add MultiTaction displays to their portfolio and offer MultiTouch's industry leading solutions to their clients."

MultiTouch will showcase the Migration Guide for SUR40/Pixelsense Users to MultiTaction at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, Florida on June 12-14 at booth number 4781. Migration Guide is also available for download from www.multitaction.com.
