Ocular's Largest Ever Capacitive Touch Screens Bring Advanced Interfaces to Netbooks and Other New Applications.

Larger Crystal Touch[TM] screens offer the clarity and durability needed in next-generation mobile and Internet devices

DALLAS -- Ocular's Crystal Touch[TM] line of projected capacitive touch screens now include the industry's first large-size capacitive touch screens, bringing extremely engaging and easy-to-use interfaces to next-generation netbooks, mobile Internet devices (MID) and other emerging types of devices. Ocular ( is the leader in advanced display-centric solutions.

Until now, the largest projected capacitive touch screens were only available in small form factors, limiting the technology's application to a few smartphones, such as Apple's iPhone, and media players. Ocular's Crystal Touch line of projected capacitive touch screens now includes sizes as large as 10.1-in., bringing the clarity and durability of capacitive touch screens to emerging device types.

"New devices, like netbooks, will gain a huge boost in the marketplace by differentiating themselves through a compelling user interface. Manufacturers are looking for an interface that pulls the user into their devices, and that's just what touch screens do," said Phil Spivey, President and CEO of Ocular. "But the critical points are that the touch screen first has to be vibrant and rich so it can make the most of multimedia applications; and second, it has to be durable. If it's susceptible to scratching or contaminants, it's not going to engage users for long."

Ocular's proven all-glass Crystal Touch capacitive touch screens are extremely durable and offer crystal clear clarity. In contrast, resistive touch screens, which are the dominant technology in use today, feature a thin layer of flexible film that can be easily scratched or clouded by chemicals.

Crystal Touch screens are now available in several standard TFT sizes, including 3.5-in., 4.3-in., 5.7-in., 7-in., 10.1-in . and in customized sizes determined by application requirements. Depending on the size and quantity, pricing begins at $22. Volume pricing is available in OEM quantities. Integrated solutions that combine a TFT display with a Crystal Touch screen are also available.
