Elo Touch Solutions (Elo), the provider of touchscreen technology, will be showcasing a portfolio of touchscreen platforms for the global gaming industry in partnership with Suzo-Happ during ICE Totally Gaming in London, February 4-6. Elo iTouch true-flat surface acoustic wave technology delivers zero bezel style cost-effectively without compromising brightness or optical clarity. Leveraging super-thin LED technology which also reduces power consumption by fifty percent, Elo's new line of touchmonitors is available in a variety of sizes for gaming machine, loyalty programme kiosk, interactive directory map, sports book, hotel, restaurant and retail applications, both in desktop and open frame forms.
Stylish designs draw players to specific gaming machines. An outstanding player experience yields increased casino revenues. Elo now offers both of these benefits with a choice of true-flat touch technologies: projected capacitive (PCAP) and iTouch, Elo's breakthrough surface acoustic wave (SAW) product. With these technologies from Elo, stylish flat cabinet designs can now be achieved – eliminating the bezel and recessed touchscreen long seen in virtually all cabinet designs.
Elo offers PCAP technology, commonly used in mobile phone and tablets, for watertight true-flat solutions in tabletop and bartop applications such as electronic roulette and video poker. For upright applications, the same flat look can now be achieved with the iTouch surface acoustic wave technology, but with its superior optics and an important price advantage. Both technologies are available in multi-touch.
iTouch is the next generation of IntelliTouch SAW technology, for years the player's choice for gaming touchscreens thanks to its fast and accurate response, scratch resistance and no need for calibration. With iTouch, all touch-sensing components have been moved to the back of the glass, enabling true flat designs. Importantly because it is clear glass, the graphics quality and colours of painstakingly-developed full HD games are preserved – the touchscreen image even precisely matches paired non-touch monitors, something not possible with capacitive technology. Furthermore, no software changes are needed because it uses the same long-proven touchscreen controller and protocol.
"Elo's gaming monitor portfolio is engineered and built with an obsession over details to exceed the highest quality standards." said Servaas Kamerling, President EMEA at Elo Touch Solutions. "Quality and reliability at a competitive price point is our reputation in the gaming industry. To achieve this Elo has been committed to innovation for over 40 years and the iTouch technology is only one of many examples of how we constantly renew and improve our portfolio."
The broad range of Elo open-frame gaming touchscreens spans sizes from 12 to 32 inches in standard or widescreen aspect ratio. At ICE 2014 customers can preview the new 2440L 24-inch gaming touchmonitor. The new 2440L comes with a state-of-the-art panel and a choice of touchscreen technology, in traditional bezel and glass-to-edge versions, single-touch and multi-touch, in a slim design with energy-saving LED backlights.
For applications beyond the gaming floor, the new Elo Tablet enables mobile operations and is built to withstand the rigors of public use while preserving the management, security and compatibility of Microsoft® Windows®. Elo interactive digital signage is designed for loyalty kiosk or directory wayfinding applications with screen sizes ranging from 32 to 70 inches with integrated computer modules.
