Developer of interactive display systems, MultiTouch Ltd. today unveiled MultiTaction Management Suite, a remote management system, as well as its first application, the MultiTaction Site Manager. The MultiTaction Site Manager allows system integrators, IT managers and content providers to manage thousands of globally dispersed, network connected interactive systems.
As such, Site Manager is primarily targeted at the corporate, retail, digital signage and education industries.
"As we speak, organizations are deploying thousands of interactive displays around the world. Knowing each display's operative status and managing their content and applications in real-time has become critical," said Petri Martikainen, CEO at MultiTouch. "MultiTaction Site Manager is the first product to support remote management of large scale interactive display deployments."
Put simply, MultiTaction Site Manager simplifies the management of interactive displays, putting setting up and configuring displays, either individually or as multi display video walls, on the desktop of system integrators, IT managers and content providers, along with monitoring the status of every display in a network, and managing content and applications in real time.
In other words, Site Manager allows interactive displays to be handled simply as a remotely manageable IT system, eliminating the need for most onsite tasks and resulting in significant cost savings. Furthermore, reporting the status of each display in a network in real time allows for quicker responses to system changes.
According to MultiTouch, MultiTaction Site Manager is only the first in what is a planned MultiTaction Management Suite, which will ultimately be a complete set of applications for managing all uses of interactive displays.
In November, the company launched its 42 and 55-inch MultiTaction multitouch displays, designed to be fully integrated with Windows 8. Theses MultiTaction Cell displays with embedded Windows 8 on an Intel (News - Alert) Core i7 chip are the first large format displays with a built-in touch user interface.
In May, MultiTouch introduced MultiTaction Cells at MuseumExpo as a way to renew public interest in museums through interactive display-based exhibits.
