Baanto Unleashes ShadowSense(TM) "LightSpeed" Touchscreen Solutions at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) and the Digital Signage Expo (DSE)

Baanto(TM) is demonstrating the newest and highest performance ShadowSense touchscreen products targeted at Digital out of Home (DOOH), Interactive Digital Signage, Education, Corporate, and Engineering & Design applications.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- Baanto International Ltd., a leading independent manufacturer of touchscreen technologies today announced the production release of the "LightSpeed" touchscreen products. The new developments dramatically increase the performance of all Baanto large format touchscreens, increase the breadth of Baanto touchscreen solutions, and implement additional features such as parallax correction to the Baanto Dashboard.

These new products and technology can be evaluated at ISE in Amsterdam (Hall 8, Stand F265) from February 4th through the 6th and at DSE in Las Vegas (Booth 329) from February 12th through the 13th.

Releasing to production now, the ShadowSense products now support multiple configurations for 32", 42", 46", 55", 65", 70", 85", 90", and 95" TFT panels. The new family members significantly extend the breadth of coverage for standard TFT LCD sizes currently available in the market and accommodate a broader range of user requirements. Reacting to market demand, one class of products is slightly oversized to support the Windows 8® "zero pixel" border area. Slightly smaller versions of the touch frames in the same size class are targeted at applications using earlier versions of Windows as well as Linux, Android, and Mac operating systems.

Cost effective and featuring advanced ShadowSense "LightSpeed" firmware, all of the large format touchscreens feature:


--  Plug and Play with Windows 7®, Windows 8®, Linux®, Mac OS®, and
    Android™ operating systems
    --  No drivers or touch applications complicating the system integration
        and slowing down the host CPU
--  Real time tracking of up to six touch points
--  Real time touch point size calculation
    --  Developers can create new and innovative use models as well as
        implement palm and spurious touch rejection
--  Responds to almost every solid touch object
    --  Eliminates the need for bare finger touching, especially important
        in a public venue
--  Provides best in class ambient light immunity of up to 10,000
    footcandles
    --  Eliminates erratic touch behavior caused by bright lights or
        filtered sunlight

"Our latest generation of firmware provides new features and just incredible performance", stated Av Utukuri, Baanto CTO. "Baanto large format products using the LightSpeed.x release of firmware can now track touch objects at rates exceeding 10 feet per second. This level of performance makes our products a stellar solution for interactive displays where rapid finger, pen, and stylus movements are common. For example, the gaming, education, corporate, architecture, and design engineering markets all require high speed and accurate tracking of multiple and simultaneous touch objects. Equally important, the user perception of performance is not based on the touch capabilities, but on how the application reacts. Baanto continues to offer one of the few large format multi-touch products that don't require drivers or touch detection applications running on the host CPU. This means that complex applications won't be bogged down by touch processing and it also allows the use of thin clients, media servers, and low power CPU's without compromising the application performance."

"2014 looks to be a great year for Baanto and we're looking forward to introduce our new products and capabilities to customers at both ISE and DSE this February", Joe Kotas, Baanto President, noted: "Earlier this month we announced the successful close of our C round funding led by Difference Capital which also included a number of strategic corporate partners as well. The additional growth capital will allow us to accelerate our product and technology development efforts as well as increasing our resources in sales, marketing, and customer support around the world to better service our growing and diverse customer base. The expansion of our product line combined with the performance of the ShadowSense "LightSpeed" technology positions Baanto as a premier supplier for applications requiring high performance, robust ambient light immunity, and cost effective touch solutions."

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
Docker is an excellent platform for organizations interested in running microservices. It offers portability and consistency between development and production environments, quick provisioning times, and a simple way to isolate services. In his session at DevOps Summit at 16th Cloud Expo, Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs, will walk through these and other benefits of using Docker to run microservices, and provide an overview of RancherOS, a minimalist distribution of Linux designed expressly to run Docker.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
