DENVER – Keytec (booth 1240), a developer of touchscreen technologies, will demonstrate at CEDIA Expo what it called “an easy way to convert an existing or older TV/ monitor into an Android-based touch interactive smart TV.”
The Keytec OPTIR Touch and Android Box will be available for screens from 10.4 to 200 inches offering multitouch capability with up to 40 touch points.
The company said the approach can easily convert any regular whiteboard into a touch interactive whiteboard (IWB) up to 200-inches in size, without the need to purchase a new projector, computer or whiteboard.
Keytec said the OPTIR Touch is lightweight and can be mounted onto any regular whiteboard by brackets, magnetic strips, double-sided tape, Velcro or dual lock strips, to create a touch-interactive whiteboard.
Free whiteboard software is available for download.
A components option for custom integrators packs a large touchscreen into a small box, saving shipping costs.
The frame segments option has the components pre-installed into four frames. This is a well-balanced option between the shipping cost and assembly labor, the company said.
The fully assembled option is ready to use, with customizable plug-andplay mounting options to fit the display.
The Garland, Texasbased company said the OPTIR Touch can be custom sized without tooling charges and minimum order requirements.
Keytec said OPTIR Touch panels will be jointly used with Wanin document cameras. The Wanin-series HD document cameras provide highresolution images to the monitor and the Keytec addon touchscreen is fully compatible with built-in annotation software.
In addition, Keytec will show samples of its Magic Touch technology that is currently being custom made for Pervasive Displays product line known as E-Paper.
When combined, the Magic Touch allows quick control over customizable programs made for E-Paper for use by a variety of applications.
Magic Touch Built-In and other resistive or matrix resistive touchscreens can be custom made to order, Keytec said.
