32″ Multi-touch Android-Based Digital Signage Display
July 20, 2011 by Sharon
For those who are not foreign to Android smart phones, the screen could be seen as a blown up of the hand held portable screen. The advantages of the signage display may be specific to a certain group of users such as executives who wish to carry out presentations, but the technology could later be complemented with other applications that may further enhance the whole experience of using smart phones for normal consumers.
The 32’ Multi-Touch display has managed to overcome a few of the major difficulties with its latest prototype. As SKR foresee that they’ll rely more on the Android OS in the future, development of the system was fully done on their own as many touch screen manufacturers don’t support Android OS.
Currently, there isn’t any other company or institution that has taken on the development of the Android based signage display. Improving on the system has also required SKR to develop a device driver that’s a unique technology of their own so that a larger display could be achieved.
The multi-touch screen has the functions of many other similar screens that run on a different OS. The touch screen interface is connected by a USB, whereas the display is connected by a HDMI where it allows high definition graphics to be displayed. This will also mean that it’ll be able to display fluid movements and also carry out touch commands on the big screen itself. Unlocking your keys will still be a simple process of swipe a finger across your screen, but with a lot more distance involved.
