TouchSystems is growing its partnership with Sharp with the addition of two Sharp large-screen displays, the PN-U423 and the PN-U473, to its touch lineup, according to a company announcement.
TouchSystems has integrated the screens with an infrared touch technology that boasts multitouch capabilities, the company said.
"Our touch technologies are not display dependent," TouchSystems President Carol Nordin said in the announcement. "They can be integrated with a number of manufacturers' screens. We chose to work with Sharp because of their screens' popularity in the retail and restaurant sectors. That popularity will only grow now that the screens are interactive."
The two screens, the SH4280I-U3 and the SH4780I-U3, are LED edge-lit, meaning a slimmer depth and lowered energy consumption. The screens also feature high brightness and full-HD resolution and are equipped with features such as expanded connectivity, built-in temperature sensors and speakers, and a fanless architecture that helps with both cooling and maintenance, the announcement said. The two screens have been rated for 24/7 operation.
