Scalable Display Technologies to Demonstrate Multi-User Touch Wall at I/ITSEC '09
Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for multi-projector display systems, together with Miller & Associates, a leading information technology and management consulting firm, and Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI), producer of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software for integrated analysis of space, defense and intelligence assets, will demonstrate a unique touch wall in Scalable's booth, #2691, at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation & Education Conference (I/ITSEC) taking place in Orlando, Florida this week.
The demonstration, which is an industry first, features an interactive, multi-user touch version of AGI's STK® mission planning and analysis software. The touch wall, built by Miller & Associates, uses Scalable Display's EasyBlend™ software to edge blend four projectors into one pixel perfect seamless desktop.
"Our STK software offers a variety of features critical to mission planning and analysis, including real-world modeling of GPS navigation and tactical communications," said Kevin Flood, AGI vice president of product marketing. "We believe these features, combined with touch capability, will enable an even greater representation of real-world events and simulation-based tactics experienced in the field."
Mark Miller, managing partner of Miller & Associates, said, "Access to information is the key to the touch wall. AGI's STK software is a data-rich application that is ideally suited to the touch user interface. Users will find that using the touch wall is as natural as gesturing while you talk."
"The combination of powerful applications, a multi-user touch wall interface and ultra-high resolution results in a new form of display experience," remarked Andrew Jamison, CEO Scalable Display. "We envision this demonstration as a good indicator of what will become common in the coming years."
I/ITSEC is being held in Orlando, Florida from November 30 through December 3, 2009.
