32″ Multi-touch Android-Based Digital Signage Display by SKR Technology

32" Multi-touch Android-Based Digital Signage Display by SKR Technology

SKR have developed a prototype multi-touch system running Android on a 32″ display. Running off a regular Android terminal which is connected via USB to the touch sensors, and HDMI to the display port, it perfectly replicates the android interface and can also display Full HD video.

“Our company makes digital signage, and people were asking us to create a large screen device which has multi-touch functionality like a smartphone. We first tried to make it using Windows 7, but it didn’t meet the needs of our customers. They said they wanted crisp, fluid movement like in a smartphone but with a high resolution display. But when we asked touch panel and peripheral manupacturers they said they don’t support the Android OS, so we were temporarily stalled. We want to do a lot more work with Android in the future, so we decided to develop the system ourselves.”

SKR developed their own device driver for Android in order to achieve a large, multi-touch display, and that is what is used in this device.

In addition to a 32″ version, they are currently planning a wide variety of screen sizes in the ramp up to commercialization, with a 23″, 46″ and wide screen versions in mind.

“We plan to have our product lineup ready for commercialization by September. Right now we are just showing the module, but of course, the actual product will have a case. We are also considering vertical displays, which smartphones are also capable of. We intend to utilize applications that run on Android in our kiosk solutions in the future, not just Windows based solutions as we have done in the past.

    Yeh, that’s going to be crucial in competing with the iPad. It seems that Apple is making moves to try to secure some of that market. Tablets and larger multitouch devices can do wonders for small (or large) businesses.
