Densitron introduces technology with mechanical touch for broadcast

Mechanical touch technology from Densitron in the UReady TFT rackmount display range integrates mechanical buttons with PCT touch technology. Having a mechanical button makes it easier for operators to be sure they have activated the display, explains Densitron. Currently this is not possible with a traditional touchscreen unless an operator is continuously looking at the screen, as it is difficult to ‘feel’ the correct area of the display.

The UReady range of 1U and 2U rackmount displays is designed to bring smartphone-type optical performance to rack systems, delivering twice the resolution of those of a similar size currently on the market, claims Densitron. The addition of the new mechanical touch technology provides users with a more streamlined and cost-effective solution for their studio environments compared with other ‘buttons’ currently available, the company says. The technology uses the images on the larger display behind it, instead of smaller, individual displays being incorporated within a button.

Densitron will demonstrate the technology on a selection of UReady displays at IBC, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 13 to 17 September.
