3M Presents "What is Multi-touch" Overview at 2009 Display Conferences
3M Launches Touch Industry Reference Site to Help Establish Touch Nomenclature

Methuen, Mass. - August 26, 2009 - Multi-touch interactivity may be the touch industry's most discussed topic and possibly the most misunderstood when single finger gestures and 10 resolvable touch points are grouped together and called "multi-touch". For software developers writing applications along this 1 to 10 finger touch spectrum and system integrators matching their requirements with existing touch solutions, understanding the multi-touch capabilities of popular technologies is important. To help clarify this touch nomenclature, 3M Touch Systems will be presenting on "Multi-touch" at two upcoming display conferences (DisplayBank U.S. FPD Conference 2009, August 20, 2009, Santa Clara, CA and DisplaySearch Emerging Displays Technology Conference, September 2, 2009, San Jose, CA) and launching a touch industry reference web site at www.touchtopics.com.

"With 25 years of touch industry experience and as a manufacturer who offers touch technologies ranging from single finger touch to 10 resolvable touch points, 3M Touch Systems is in a unique position to help standardize our industry's nomenclature," said Scott Hagermoser, business manager, 3M Touch Systems. "We've seen first hand how a simple misunderstanding of 'what is multi-touch' can create buying confusion and lead customers to select the wrong touch technology for their solution."
