Grayhill will display a new Instinct touch panel capable of recognizing up 10 touch points simultaneously at the Radiological Society of North America meeting in Chicago Nov. 30 – Dec. 5, 2014. The panel can help resolve image readability problems due to glare or other issues.

“OEMs can gain a competitive edge using Instinct technology to create more usable, more affordable devices,” said Jason Kandik, Grayhill marketing manager. “Integrating controls into one easy-to-use device helps simplify design and reduce manufacturing costs. Such devices also improve medical staff productivity and efficiency.”

The touch interface allows hospital personnel to remain focused on the screen without having to reach for buttons or knobs. The 4,096 x 4,096 resolution enables the panel to recognize distinct touch points in close proximity, regardless of whether the user is wearing gloves. When fluids or gels accumulate on the surface of the panel, it switches into Fluid Compatibility Mode to continue tracking individual touch points. In addition, Grayhill’s in-house optical bonding process creates an airtight seal, ensuring no gaps or air pockets exist to reflect light. A protective glass cover resists impact and can be wiped down or disinfected.
