ActiveLight, Display Werks Intro Digital Signage
ActiveLight, a distributor of displays and signage solutions, partnered with Display Werks to launch a 40-inch TActive LCD solution for retailers, which features an integrated touch screen for digital signage applications. The solution will officially debut on May 18 at the Digital Retailing Expo in Chicago. The showcase will, says ActiveLight, include a working installation of the digital signage application using the new TActive LCD, which will be sold exclusively through ActiveLight for $7,999 MSRP. It also includes ActiveLight's support solutions and product guarantee.
"This is another step forward for the digital signage industry," says Brad Gleeson, president and COO of ActiveLight. "Interactive displays are becoming increasingly popular."
Designed for use in digital signage installations, according to both companies, the TActive can be used in a variety of industries, including retail, financial, airport and restaurant applications. It supports multiple video inputs, features 1280 x 768 high-resolution video and offers a 170-degree viewing angle. With the appropriate software, ActiveLight reports that the display can be used in both portrait and landscape modes, and allows the whole screen or just parts of it to be touch sensitive.
