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."
