NEC launches interactive displays with up to 12 touch-points, offering greater accuracy and productivity

Large format displays in NEC’s E, P and XUHD series offer enhanced ShadowSense™ touch technology for corporate, education and retail environments


Munich, 13 June, 2016NEC Display Solutions Europe is advancing its ShadowSense™ technology display range with true multi-touch support of up to 12 simultaneous real-touch points. The additional points make touch technology experiences much more responsive, adding scope for greater productivity and collaboration. The new touch line-up includes NEC’s MultiSync E series, P series and Ultra High Definition (XUHD) large format displays in sizes from 40-inch up to 98-inch.

Industries that rely on displays for intuitive and collaborative working are to benefit from the additional real-time touch points with accurate and reliable interactive experiences. These displays with ShadowSense™ touch technology have the ability to track 10 or 12 touch points and understand each different point of interaction, providing unparalleled performance and accuracy.

Daniela Dexheimer, Product Manager Solutions at NEC Display Solutions Europe comments: “We know that interaction with displays and information has increasingly become touch focused, whether in a retail, education or business environment. This trend is the driving force behind innovation and intelligence in touch technology, ensuring these experiences are seamless and add the productivity benefits that users and businesses seek. By adding more real-touch points the displays are more responsive than ever.”

Depending on the size these displays can be used in scenarios such as interactive retail signage and infotainment, way-finding and self-service kiosk applications. In corporate and learning environments, they can be used effectively with groups, for example as interactive whiteboards.

Other benefits of NEC’s large format displays with enhanced ShadowSense™ touch technology are:

  • Intuitive touch behaviour – Users can enjoy the displays’ intuitive behaviour, which automatically detects and switches between interactions like finger swipes, stylus writing and erasing, whilst working with multi-touch applications. Plus, the displays filter out misleading interactions, avoiding ghost touches even in high ambient light operations.
  • Simple plug and play – No need for driver installations for all major operating systems thanks to the simple plug and play feature.
  • Impressive resolution and full colour management – The Ultra High Definition (XUHD-series) displays offers impressive UHD resolution and colour, thanks to the integrated NEC SpectraView® colour engine. Users also have the ability to adjust all visual parameters to further improve any colour.
  • Easy upgrade capabilities – Businesses can easily enhance the displays with an optional “Windows based” Slot-in-PC using the integrated OPS option slot, without the need for external cables or devices, thereby simplifying installations and reducing the points of failure.
