NextWindow Touch Screens to Power New Computer Monitor from the World’s Fourth Largest PC Vendor
Pleasanton, CA (Vocus) January 21, 2010
NextWindow, the leading provider of optical touch screens for desktop PCs, monitors and large-format displays, today announced that a new desktop computer monitor will feature NextWindow optical touch screens. Lenovo, the world’s fourth largest PC vendor and the number one PC vendor in China, is launching the L2461 desktop monitor featuring a 23” interactive touch screen designed and manufactured by NextWindow. The Lenovo L2461, which will begin shipping next month, was on display at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Lenovo is the latest PC maker to deliver a product for the Touch PC market. Dell, HP, Medion, NEC and Sony all offer a touch-enabled PC, monitor, or both, and each vendor is using NextWindow touch screens. NextWindow has become the world’s leading provider of touch screens – a market that analyst firm DisplaySearch is forecasting will reach .4 billion by 2013 – due to a relentless focus on innovation. Last month NextWindow announced the addition of two new touch screen patents to its IP portfolio, which dates back to 2000. And in July 2009 NextWindow became the first optical touch screen manufacturer to announce Windows 7 logo certification. With the addition of the L2461 to its project roster, NextWindow has more project wins than any other desktop-focused touch screen manufacturer.
“As evidenced by the many new products on the market, it appears certain that ‘touch’ will be among the most important technologies in 2010 and beyond,” said Al Monro, CEO at NextWindow. “And while the cell phone and tablet markets are helping to drive awareness, we’re hearing that adoption of touch-enabled desktop PCs has really taken off since Windows 7 launched in October. Given what we know from dealings with the largest PC vendors, it’s a safe bet that within a few years nearly every computing device – be it a cell phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer – will include a touch-enabled interface.”
NextWindow is a leader in touch-screen technology and a major manufacturer of optical multi-touch displays for OEMs, ODMs and resellers. With highly accurate, cost-effective solutions designed for personal and business use, NextWindow provides the hardware necessary to bring touch-screen technology to life—giving software designers the freedom to create exciting and intuitive applications. Founded in 2000, NextWindow is privately held with offices in New Zealand, Taiwan, California and Singapore, with manufacturing facilities throughout Asia.
