About Touch Screen Displays

One of the first questions that might have arisen in your mind at this point might be – “Is touch screen technology really a millennial invention?” Astoundingly, this is a technology that has been around for more than 30 years! That’s right, it was the 1970s when touch screen monitors started to make their appearance in our tech and computing world. Although initially, these systems were reserved for advanced computing requirements like space technology and the like, slowly these started to appear in mass use through ATM screens and other similar devices.

Use

Touch displays play the dual role of input as well as output devices. These monitors have been designed to provide a visual user interface and accept input data and signals on the screen panel when the user touches specific surface points on it. The operating system that runs any touch screen display also needs to be specially designed to ensure proper input formats for users. These screens have totally negated the use of computer peripheral devices such as keyboards and mouse. The screen itself is all that is needed for the computing unit to accept all kinds of inputs and present output data.

Components

A touch screen display has three primary components that allow it to function: the touch sensor, the controller, and the software driver. The software driver is the application program that transcribes touch sensations into commands and communicates with the operating system installed on the computer. The controller is a PC card that connects the touch sensor to the PC. It is a small gadget that translates information from the touch sensor into information that is comprehensible to the PC.

Application

Large touch screen monitors are used in a variety of applications today, far beyond the usual personal computing requirements. Advertising happens to be one of the most potent uses of this technology whereby companies can present audiences with an interactive touch interface to convey marketing messages. Such monitors are also used as digital signage and eve restaurant menus and purchase ordering systems in retail outlets. Touch technology is way more than ATM screens and smartphone input devices now. It is a power that can propel your business to the top.
