If you're in the market for a new desk or table, before you head to your local furniture store take a moment to fantasize how awesome it would be to replace that old wooden thing with Ideum's new MT55 HD Multitouch Table. We mentioned their older MT50 model about a year ago, but they just announced today a new MT55 HD model that's a 55" beauty sporting full 1920x1080 HD resolution.
The MT55 HD is a fully integrated system with a multitouch LCD, ultra clear hardened and tempered glass, powerful computer, UPS battery backup, cooling cell, and a Bose Audio system all in a clean pedestal table design. The pedestal houses most of the components including the PC and audio system so the table top surface remains thin at only 3 inches thick. The unit measures 31 inches tall to meet ADA (American with Disabilities) requirements.
The integrated PC is a HP system with Intel Quad Core i7 processor, NVIDIA Quadro 600 PCI video card, 4GB RAM, and dual 250GB SATA hard drives. The system runs Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and has a three-year HP warranty. The LED back-lit LCD is rated for 50,000 hours and is protected by a 5mm thick tempered glass. The multitouch overlay supports up to 32 simultaneous touch points.
The table supports WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, USB 2.0, and HDMI output. GestureWorks for Flash and Flex ships with the table to support more than 200 gestures and is the most advanced multitouch SDK available. Pricing information is not yet available.
