With unlimited multitouch-technology on large-scale screens, for the very first time it is possible to facilitate simultaneous joint operation of an application: multiuser-technology!
Control of digital content by touches and gestures comes much more naturally than any input device - it needs no introduction and is instantly understood.
The evolution in human-computer-interaction: So far any conventional software has been designed for single user operation - until now!
The connection to the physical world by recognition of real objects will offer new innovative applications in the future.
In world's first AppStore for interactive digital signage touchscreen software for large-scale multitouch displays, you choose from a growing number of customizable professional multiuser business apps. With an intuitive content management software you can easily integrate your own content and designs - no programming skills required.Learn More Go to AppStore
Interactive touch technology is here to stay! As users got familiar with multitouch control on mobile devices and tablets, they expect the same intuitive experience on larger displays as well. We will see such larger scale professional touchscreens on a more frequent basis in our daily lives, be it at shopping malls, airports, museums or bus stations. The bigger the display, the more users can interact with it at the same time - either individually, just for themselves, or jointly in a group.
Interactive signage constitutes the next evolutionary step of interactive marketing in public spaces, also known as interactive digital out-of-home (DOOH). While meanwhile non-interactive display installations are able to centrally manage digital content via the internet, interactive signage is already a step ahead and involves the user in the marketing process. According to learning theory we can recall information better the more senses are involved and addressed. Thus, interactive digital signage installations convey a message way more effectively than any conventional passive digital signage solution ever could. The combination of touchscreen hardware and software offers unlimited possibilities for innovative marketing at point of sale and information.
Whitepaper: What is Interactive Digital Signage?
Since the success of Apple´s first iPhone, touch technology has become a given standard. The advantages are clear: direct and intuitive handling via fingers is easy to grasp for the young and old alike: with a swift touch we activate buttons, swipe images to the left or right, or zoom into a map with two fingers, completely void of any additional input devices like mouse or keyboard - human-computer interaction has never been easier!

Object recognition on interactive touchscreens enables users to get information about a specific topic or product in the most intuitive and efficient way you could think of! Instead of navigation through complex menu structures, users simply put the physical object on to the screen - the desired multimedia content opens directly next to the spot where the object is placed.
That way customers can call up existing special offers, advertisement videos or additional information simply by help of a product packaging. Customer consultants use objects to sort products by different categories, and in a restaurant the gaming app closes as soon as the waiter serves the plate with your favorite dish on the multitouch table.

Multitouch technology on smartphones and tablets brought us a more intuitive handling of apps on small devices, which we generally used to operate individually, just by ourselves. But the door to the next evolutionary stage has already opened: For the first time it has become possible to operate interactive applications parallely, simultaneously and collectively on bigger touchscreens for professional use.
In the future on large touchscreen tables, terminals or video walls we will create a style guide with friends in a fashion store, plan our holidays interactively with the family in a travel agency, choose the individual toppings for our pizza in a restaurant – or draw up mind maps, collages or plans together with our colleagues at work. All void of additional input devices like mouse or keyboard, together with any number of users, simultaneously using the same software on the same display.
