These massive, cutting-edge multi-touch displays look and feel like the future for DJs and music makers has come early. There's so many real-world, interactive uses for these 39" displays it's somewhat mind-blowing. Here's what Touch Innovations tells us about the new XG series which is available from around $5,999 USD.
MIAMI, FL, USA: physical hardware touch technology and cutting-edge software specialist Touch Innovations is proud to announce availability of XG — a stunning see-through, all-glass design demonstrating its most luxurious touch screen system yet — as of January 3…
Wowing wherever with a seamless bezel-free design, an all-glass body, and a 39-inch see-through PCAP (Projective Capacitive) touch display supporting 10 simultaneous touch points, XG is quite unlike anything anyone has ever seen (or touched), truly exuding that special ’XG’ factor! For this unique combination of function and finesse makes it a perfect fit for impressing clients and audiences alike in almost any fixed location scenario, performance-based or otherwise — on stage, including high-end clubs’ DJ booths, and elsewhere, from hotel lobbies to mall kiosks and museums to showrooms, with much in-between and beyond, such as gaming events and even upmarket restaurants. Realigning performance and infotainment control possibilities are almost endless.
Entertainment-ready, the Windows-compatible XG is available as two distinct versions — XG PRO (with an onboard high-power Intel PC with 500 GB storage for easy installation and preferred software usage) or XG LITE (without an onboard PC). Allowing for the most luxurious display, all components are conveniently sited inside the base unit, avoiding unsightly cable clutter. The projected 39-inch display is brighter than any other touch screen system, increasing both visual attractiveness as well as legibility. Little wonder, then, that it is guaranteed to command attention in almost any environment.
Every XG system ships bundled with Emulator 2, Touch Innovations’ critically-acclaimed customisable multi-touch controller flagship software for any MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) application. As such, Emulator 2 really represents a license to dream, making it perfectly possible for users to create their dream controller by bringing about a multi-touch experience with everything and anything available at their fingertips. For Emulator 2 includes all standard objects like sliders, knobs, modulation pads, encoders, buttons, and much more besides. But best of all, as each and every component is fully customisable, creativity is effectively only limited by the user’s imagination... and, of course, the software being controlled. It’s a killer combination!
Concludes Touch Innovations COO Cody Myer: “XG offers our most elegant setup to date, bridging us into the digital signage world while retaining high-end performance for all user scenarios. As we continue to develop hybrid hardware/software solutions for creative artists, products like our ELITE series — a DJ’s dreamlike mobile marriage of road-ready, cutting-edge multi-touch technology with a massive see-through screen — and, now, our new XG models are becoming a bigger part of our business.”
