32” of potential: the curved touchscreen that shows you more

You see a curved touchscreen monitor. You might even be thinking how good it would look in your gaming rig. We see the painstaking mechanical stress needed to form the curve and how to calculate the limits of that stress. We see the film sensor and 3mm coverglass, optically bound to a TFT display. And the complexity of engineering both a backlight and laminating touch capability across the curve.

SimplePlus 7”: the unsung hero of touch displays

Sometimes products need a fanfare and sometimes… well, they’re just quietly great. Our new 7” SimplePlus touch display is in the second category. It’s superb ­– in the right hands. What do we mean by that? Well, on the face of it, it’s what might be called ‘mid-range’. A product that delivers the perfect balance between cost and performance, which is exactly what you need if you’re looking for affordability without cutting corners. You might call it the unsung hero of touch displays.

Colour, style and shape: the art of coverglass

How many times have you touched a glass screen today? Ten? Twenty? Thirty? More? Unless you’re actively monitoring your screen time, it’s barely even a consideration. But the kind of glass you interact with matters. The way it looks influences your experience of the screen, even if you don’t consciously realise it. And the coverglass has usually been designed for the optimum comfort of use – and style.

Let’s get it ON: discover why our new 15.6” ONCELL monitor is faster, thinner and stronger

We don’t need to tell you what exactly is so great about our new 15.6” ONCELL touch monitor – it’s all in the title of this article. But what we do need to explain is how on-cell technology achieves the kind of fast, thin and strong monitor that is ideal for training environments, point of sale and more.
