Planar's New Lines of
Touchscreen Monitors Drive Market Evolution
Planar Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:PLNR), a worldwide leader in flat-panel display systems, is launching an expanded, comprehensive suite of touchscreen monitors designed for OEMs, integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) targeting the growing markets for point-of-sale and point-of-purchase monitor systems in retail, hospitality and gaming applications.
Through an alliance with 3M, Planar's new PT touchscreen and LA open-frame monitor lines provide improved touch accuracy, superior optical performance and improved surface wear against scratching. With either resistive or capacitive touchscreens, the PT and LA monitors support touch applications in both attended and unattended environments.
In addition, the displays' human interface device (HID) compliant drivers provide easy integration with programs running on any Windows 98 or newer operating system, shortening the time-to-market for integrators and OEMs developing or installing touch solutions.
