Ocular's Gesturing Technology Adds Engaging Interfaces to Netbooks and a Broad Spectrum of Applications.

Compelling Gesture-Based Interfaces Will Be the Norm on Demanding New Applications

DALLAS -- The new advanced gesturing capabilities of Ocular's Crystal Touch[TM] large-size capacitive touch screens will enable intuitive, engaging user interfaces on netbooks, mobile Internet devices (MID) and other emerging types of devices. Ocular (,) is the leader in advanced display-centric solutions.

Crystal Touch screens are capable of all of the typical gesturing functions like slide, swipe, drag, rotate, zoom-in, zoom-out and others. Combining gesturing with Crystal Touch's large capacitive touch screen sizes up to 10.1-in. means that devices like netbooks can have both a compelling gesturing interface for ease-of-use and a vibrant screen display for new multimedia applications. In addition, the glass Crystal Touch capacitive touch screens are so durable that constant touching will not scratch or otherwise compromise the optical clarity of the screen. Until now, touch screens with gesturing capabilities have been limited to small screen sizes on wireless smartphones such as the Apple iPhone and media players.

"Now designers don't have to sacrifice long-term screen clarity and vibrancy to have a gesturing touch screen interface. Crystal Touch with gesturing provides both and allows current touch screen interfaces to be replaced by the compelling gesture-based interfaces users are demanding today," said Phil Spivey, President and CEO of Ocular. "This takes on even greater importance as new applications, which incorporate streaming video and other forms of multimedia, become more commonplace. Users are not only demanding a tough, long lasting touch screen that's resistant to scratching, but they want one with the clarity they get from their high-definition televisions."

Gesturing is available with Crystal Touch screens in several standard TFT sizes, including 3.5-in., 4.3-in., 5.7-in., 7-in., 10.1-in . and customized sizes to meet application requirements. Pricing begins at $22. Volume pricing is available in OEM quantities. Integrated solutions combining a TFT display with a Crystal Touch screen featuring gesturing are also available.
