Sharp unveils its new 20inch-class full-HD touch-screen monitor
February 6, 2013 -- Mississauga, Ontario
Sharp debuts a highly responsive touchscreen monitor that brings a new dimension of interactive functionality to the workplace. This 20-inch-class touchscreen LCD panel delivers full HD resolution with performance-enhancing UV2A technology. Its 10-point multi-touch screen provides extremely quick response for writing and touch gestures. When connected to a device running Windows 8, the monitor serves as a beautifully intuitive interface.
The monitor delivers crisp, clear images and is optimised for use with Windows 8, says Darren Gaffey, Product Planning and Marketing Manager, Visual Solutions, Sharp. Windows 8 is a great step forward. It provides a pointer to the future of how we will control computers and really comes to life when used on a touch screen. The monitor supports all the gesture features of Windows and offers a more cost-efficient way to take advantage of the software’s full capabilities as there is no need to purchase a new PC or laptop.
With today’s touch screens allowing people to use two fingers to manage controls, users will instantly note that the 10-point touch capability of the monitor offers a much more intuitive and tactile user experience. The display’s capacitive touchscreen provides highly accurate and fast response to touch or the included stylus – similar to tablet PCs.
The stylus is just 2mm thick at the nib and provides fast and realistic writing. It also includes a ‘palm cancellation’ function to prioritise the stylus recognition so users can write comfortably with their hand resting on the screen. In addition, the screen’s orientation can be flipped by switch – especially useful for teams working together on projects.
