"Anti-glare

An anti-glare screen is designed to cut down on the amount of light that reflects off the LCD display. Reflected light or glare can reduce the view ability of the display by impacting the contrast, colors and sharpness of the display.
The matte finish anti-glare computer screen also has a disadvantage, by scattering the light coming out of the display, resulting in a slightly less-crisp image for the viewer. A good way to choose between anti-glare finishes is to consider the environment in which you will be using your display. A light anti-glare touch screen may be well-suited for use when there is mostly ambient light that you can control. A heavier anti-glare maybe suited for environments where harsh overhead lighting or changing ambient light conditions are common.

NYC to replace pay phones with Skype-enabled, 32" touch screen kiosks | TechSpot News

NYC to replace pay phones with Skype-enabled, 32" touch screen kiosks | TechSpot News | touch screen displays | Scoop.it

New York City intends to pilot a program that will replace the city's pay phones with "smart screens". The touch screen devices will measure 32 inches in size, connect to the Internet and provide local neighborhood information in multiple languages. There are plans to include Skype-based video conferencing, facilities to check email and even function as a wireless hot spot.

 

The initial roll out will include the replacement of 500 phone booths, but may expand to all 12,800 pay phones in the future. In addition to their larger counterparts, officials also intend to replace subterranean pay phones with smaller, 22-inch versions.

MultiTouch begins taking pre-orders for 84-inch 4K interactive display | GizMag.com | touch screen displays | Scoop.it

Only a few weeks after attendees at the annual developer conference of Finland's MultiTouch Ltd got a first look at the company's latest MultiTaction monster, it's gone up for pre-order. Currently a working prototype, the new 84-inch unit is claimed to be the world's first fully integrated, 4K resolution interactive display.

 

MultiTouch Ltd expects to start producing the new MT840UHD model in mid 2014, and says that it will have the same fast response times as the current 42-, 46-, and 55-inch MultiTaction Cell Displays. A single 84-inch 4K multi-touch module can be set up as a table, or as a movable interactive vertical display courtesy of the included wheeled floor mount. Multiple units can also be stacked to create huge multi-touch walls.

NYC Subways Deploy A Touch-Screen Network, Complete With Apps

NYC Subways Deploy A Touch-Screen Network, Complete With Apps | touch screen displays | Scoop.it

The designers at Control Group--have been hired by New York’s MTA to bring a plan for bringing a networked, touch-screen system to their subways. Starting this year, 90 touch-screen kiosks will make their way to thoroughfares like Grand Central Station and hip stops like Bedford Avenue. Together, they’ll make a beta network for 2 million commuters and tourists a day.


Each kiosk is a 47-inch touch screen, encapsulated in stainless steel, with an operational temperature up to 200 degrees. They’ll be placed, mostly in pairs, outside pay areas, inside mezzanines and even right on train platforms. Control Group has skinned the hardware with a simple front end and an analytics-heavy backend. And the platform will even support third-party apps approved by the MTA.

At launch, the screens will feature all sorts of content, like delays, outages, and, of course, ads (which bring in $100 million in revenue for the MTA each year, but mostly in paper signage). Yet its most powerful interaction for many will likely be its map, which features a one-tap navigation system.

You look at the map, you tap your intended destination, and the map will draw your route, including any transfers along the way. It’s an interface that puts Google Maps to shame.

James's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:15 AM

Touch interface has seen a rise in the community, such as information booths.

It allows for easy usability and quick access for people in a hurry.

While it does give convenience to the people, it's another job that's been mechanized because of its efficiency.

 

Touchscreens do away with the harder input devices and allow people to use it little to no prior knowledge of how to access it.

luiy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 10:23 AM

THE POWER OF EXTRA SENSORS

 

At the same time, the system’s screens could be the least interesting part of this project. The kiosks will be fitted with extra modules--video cameras, mics, and Wi-Fi--to open up a whole secondary layer of data collection and interface.

 

With cameras and mics, the MTA can enable two-way communication (what I imagine as emergency response messaging), and they can also pull in all sorts of automated metrics from their stations--they’d have eyes capable of counting station crowdedness or even approximate user ethnographics.

Meanwhile, Wi-Fi opens the door for networking a whole platform of mobile users with Internet access and other streamed content. Given that the average person waits 5 to 10 minutes on a platform, O’Donnell sees the potential of engaging, sponsored experiences, like a networked game of Jeopardy, while people wait for the train, or streaming media content, like TV/movie clips. A tourist could, of course, do something far more practical, too, like download a city map in moments.

“We can’t provide Internet for everybody,” he says, “but we can allow interactivity on the platform.”
