    As we are concerned about traditional touch screen, its sensors are built into the panel, thus making the larger size, the higher the cost. In addition, pressing the touch screen will damage resistive sensors so that its click is limited. According to the above issue, Albatron OTM uses the advanced technology to prevent the problems. Optical sensors and reactors are installed in the panels around the framework, in order to infrared to track finger movements, so Albatron OTM is more sensitive and accurate. On the other hand, there will be no fog resistive touch screen will appear fog film, and its display shows more colorful than capacitive touch screen.

Watch Full HD video with the 16:9 panel, it won’t appear black side of the screen, or the picture quality to reduce distortion scaling situation. Moreover, with 120 frame rate, the performance of Albatron OTM is superior to 100 frame rate of traditional touch screen. With USB, RS232C, DVI and D-sub and other output ports, Albatron OTM can connect PC for video and images and derive more applications.

    At present a large-sized touch screen has a wide range of applications, such as interactive advertisement in supermarkets and shopping malls and digital navigation in museums and tourist spots. With Google Earth, YouTube and other Internet applications, Albatron OTM can assist teachers in teaching easier and more vivid, children in learning to concentrate more as well. Unlike resistive touch screen with restrictions of click rate, Albatron OTM use of tempered glass to reduce damage, so that it is more durable and has a longer product life.

    I'd be hesitant to use a touch panel screen of that size.... but if you can turn it horizontal and give it a nice glass surface, it could be a lot of fun to mess with and probably really good for workflow for some applications. Glad to see touch screen tech is getting cheaper and more flexible.

    too big for a regular monitor, but replace your tv with this and use windows media center. that would be an interesting experience.

    I wonder how much they are charging for this thing?

    Too big ^^.. 40"+ screens are a total blast in FPS flying and driving games. IF get enough game support you could hit the switches in the cockpit too..

    Looks sharp and none of the typical melted look( which i like more ).

    If you were to stand close enough to a 42-inch 1080p screen.. you wouldn't want to touch it.
