Displax Pad all-in-one large format multitouch displays debut

A company called Edigma has unveiled a series of large-format multitouch displays aimed at encouraging touch interactivity for a variety of needs. The displays are called Displax Pad and are described as all-in-one multitouch displays with a flat surface, sleek design, and customizable multiuser software. The displays are plug-and-play and ready to be plugged into a computer and used right out-of-the-box.

All of the multitouch components required for the displayed operate are embedded inside the casing and the screens can be hung in landscape or portrait modes. The displays include a software suite with several multitouch applications included. The large-format screens are available in 40, 42, 47, 55, and 65-inch sizes.

The screen supports 10 independent touches and has a completely flat glass touch surface. The display itself is full HD resolution and LED backlit. The body of the display is made from aluminum for durability. The screen is driven by a Mac mini computer with a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB storage.

Graphics for the little computer handled by Intel HD graphics 4000. One odd bit about the Mac mini PC driving the display is that rather than running OS X, it runs Windows 8. The display has a pair of 10 W speakers integrated and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The native resolution of all five screen sizes is 1920 x 1080.
