Multitouch technology allows users to interact with any device in several ways. By allowing a device to recognize and process multiple touches simultaneously, multitouch technology provides a more intuitive user experience. In this manner, PARTTEAM & OEMKIOSKS, through frames overlay (produced internally), can convert any LG, Samsung, Philips, amongst others, display into a display with multitouch Projected Capacitive (PCAP) technology.
Examples of multitouch technology include smartphones, tablets, interactive tables, multimedia kiosks and digital billboards, which will make the person experience easier and better. Multitouch technology also allows multiple pressure points to be interpreted at the same time, including gestures.
