Elo Touch Solutions, which bills itself as "the original inventor of touchscreen technology," will showcase its latest interactive digital signage offering next week at Integrated Systems Europe 2014 in Amsterdam.
Elo's built-for-touch professional displays combine large, energy-efficient LED HD screens with optional Intel Core i3 or i5 computer modules running Microsoft Windows, the company said. Elo hardware, coupled with leading software, enables cloud-based collaboration, digital whiteboard, building directory and virtual receptionist applications that form the "Elo @ The Office" solutions. They are designed to enhance communications, optimize collaboration and boost productivity in office environments.
The "Elo @ The Office" solutions, easy-to-install touchscreen solutions for corporations, government agencies, medical facilities and higher educational institutions, aim to take the benefits that IDS brings to retailers — such as increased marketing effectiveness and return on investments, and an enhanced user experience for customers — into commercial office environments. The four solutions come complete with all of the hardware, software, accessories and services that enable lobby guests to better interact with employees and make meeting participants more collaborative and productive, the company said.
Elo @ The Office includes a Corporate Collaboration solution for enhancing the effectiveness of multilocation meetings; a Digital Whiteboard solution combining the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer, without the need for a projector or a laptop; a Directory solution providing built-for-touch functionality to enable visitors of any building or campus to find their destinations quickly and easily; and a Virtual Receptionist solution enabling employees to communicate with visitors in the lobby from their desks using face-to-face video or audio-only conversations.
Designed for the demanding usage requirements of professional audiovisual and other commercial markets, the Elo IDS portfolio delivers an interactive digital canvas in screen sizes ranging from 32 to 70 inches, according to the announcement. The IDS models are available with Elo's IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave or optical touch technologies that enable up to six simultaneous touches for multi-user interaction. Both offer strengthened clear glass to deliver brightness while ensuring reliable touch operation for years. Additionally, the 32-inch 3201L display also comes in a true-flat seamless glass version with projected capacitive touchscreen technology. Integrated Elo computer module options improve digital signage reliability by removing the need for additional cabling, while compatibility is maintained for Apple iOS, Google Android, Linux and Windows environments, the company said.
"Whether used as wayfinding system, interactive advertising canvas, conference room collaboration tool, virtual receptionist or building directory, Elo's professional-grade, built-in touchscreen displays are built to last in any public environment," Elo EMEA President Servaas Kamerling said in the announcement.
