MultiTouch's Interactive Displays React to Real-Life Objects With Enriched Reality(TM)

NEW YORK, NY, Jan 03, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- MultiTouch Ltd., the world leader in interactive display systems, today announced its latest technology, Enriched Reality(TM). With the new technology, MultiTouch's MultiTaction(R) series of displays are able to detect every object that interacts or is placed on the system.

Enriched Reality is based on MultiTouch's proprietary Computer Vision Through Screen (CVTS) technology and uses 2D optical markers for real-life object detection to uniquely identify any object attached to a marker. In addition to this, Enriched Reality supports blob tracking which recognizes all basic geometric shapes including circles, triangles and rectangles.

MultiTouch also announced that a number of clients are using its Enriched Reality technology. These clients include: -- San Francisco-based Snibbe Interactive with installations at EMP Museum in Seattle, Mob Museum in Las Vegas and Orthofix, a medical company from Lewisville, TX, http://youtu.be/Cjt0_FbVVzw -- Germany-based Atracsys with its Chocolate station, http://youtu.be/AHE8d5IWAvo -- Spain-based Sensaa with its Sekuensaa music application, http://vimeo.com/10805193 -- Denmark-based CAVI with its Lego Flow application, http://youtu.be/CND3ClC4KwY "Enriched Reality underlines the uniqueness of MultiTouch's CVTS technology," says Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch. "The CVTS technology can detect everything from single touch points to unlimited number of users to simultaneous use of hands, IR pens and real-life objects. The support for Enriched Reality will accelerate the development of applications that combine real-life objects with digital content in classrooms, museums and retail." MultiTouch will showcase Enriched Reality at CES 2013, taking place in Las Vegas, in central hall, booth #14246. Live demonstration includes CAVI Radartable (http://youtu.be/tivjAaLaO-w) where users can compose music with real-life pieces that represent different instruments, musical effects and samples.

Enriched Reality is included with MultiTaction series of displays as a standard feature. The developers can use MultiTouch's proprietary Cornerstone SDK, XML or TUIO interface to access the marker and blob information on the screens.
