Densitron’s latest products use new mechanical touch technology

17 August 2018

Display and embedded computing technology leaders, Densitron, has integrated mechanical buttons with projective capacitive touch technology in its UReady thin-film transistor rackmount display range.

Having a mechanical button makes it easier for operators to be sure that they have activated it. Currently this isn’t possible with a traditional touchscreen unless an operator is continuously looking at the screen, as it is difficult to ‘feel’ the correct area of the display.

The UReady range of 1U and 2U rackmount displays are designed to bring smartphone type optical performance to rack systems, delivering twice the resolution of those of a similar size currently on the market.

The addition of the new mechanical touch technology provides users with a more streamlined and cost-effective solution for their studio environments compared with other ‘buttons’ currently available. This is due to the technology’s utilisation of the images on the larger display behind it – instead of smaller, individual displays being incorporated within a button.

Said Chris Goodhall, global business development director at Densitron: “Since Densitron made the commitment – and the investment – into entering the broadcast market, we made it our mission to spot gaps in the industry and offer simple, yet elegant, solutions. We believe the addition of mechanical touch technology, is a seemingly small, but important advance, which further enhances the value of our new UReady range.”

At the International Broadcast Convention (IBC) 2018, Densitron will be demonstrating the new technology on a selection of its UReady displays. For more information about Densitron's display technology, visit
