LG Display Scores Microsoft Windows 7 Touch Logo Certification for Touchscreen Panel

Korean company LG Display Co., Ltd., which makes thin-film transistor liquid crystal display technology, announced it has obtained Microsoft’s (News - Alert) ‘Windows 7 Touch Logo’ certification for its touchscreen panels.

Microsoft’s Windows 7 Touch Logo certification is a program that validates the quality of multi-touch digitizers for use with Windows 7 and the panel’s compatibility. In order to be certified, products have to undergo tests at Microsoft’s Windows Touch Test Lab.

The certified product is a 13.3-inch Capacitive In-Cell Multi-Touch LCD Panel for notebook PCs with multi-touch functions that allows for simultaneous recognition of two touch points. Unlike conventional touchscreen products -- where generally films for touchscreen functions are applied to the standard display -- the LG product has touch sensors built into the display, according to the company.
