3M Offers Multi-touch Capabilities for Windows 7
3M Touch Systems, has announced that its Projected Capacitive and Surface Capacitive touch screen products have achieved the “Compatible with Windows 7” logo. Engineered to be seamlessly integrated with the Windows 7 operating system, these 3M touch screens help application developers and customers take advantage of the operating system’s new touch interface. 3M Projected Capacitive touch technology has received Windows Touch Additional Qualification (AQ) status for multi-touch interactivity by meeting 100% of the testing criteria. This 3M touch technology offers Windows 7 developers “true” multi-touch functionality with 10-finger simultaneous touch capability for real-world multi-finger and multi-user applications. This technology is currently available as a 19-inch multi-touch developer’s kit.
The MicroTouch System SCT3250EX (formerly knows as the 3M MicroTouch Cleartek II Touch System) based on the company’s Surface Capacitive touch technology, has received the “Compatible with Window 7” logo for single touch and digitised gesture capabilities. With this certification, customers are assured that their 3M touch screen displays or 3M touch-enabled devices with 3M USB-HID connectivity will plug and play with the Windows 7 operating system without loading touch drivers.

This helps assure ease of integration and helps VARs and systems integrators take advantage of the touch functionality built into Windows 7 as they rollout new programs or upgrade existing ones. The SCT3250EX HID product is available in display sizes ranging from 6.4 inches to 32 inches.

“Achieving this Windows 7 compatibility means European customers have two strong 3M offerings to meet their touch application needs – whether that is single touch, simple gesture or “true” multi-touch interactivity,” says Paolo Pedrazzoli, marketing operations manager, 3M Touch Systems.

3M Touch Systems provides innovative touch screen technology products to customers worldwide under the “MicroTouch” brand. Popular single touch, gesture touch and multi-touch applications include casino gaming, retail point of sale, foodservice, hospitality, self-service, industrial, healthcare and interactive digital signage.
