Latest Invention: Panasonic Releases Giant 65-Inch Interactive Plasma Display with Multitouch Feature


Panasonic has recently unveiled its giant Interactive Plasma Display that measures 65 inches and allows up to 4 people to write in different colors on the screen at the same time.

It is worth mentioning that this is not the first interactive display, but previous models from other firms showed error messages when the user accidentally touched the screen with their sleeve. The current display solved this problem. Thus when kids can write on it with a pen, while placing the other hand on the screen without having to worry about technical issues - their resting hand will not act as a sensor.

It would be interesting to note that for this particular device Panasonic created the Digital Pen System. The latter makes use of a feature characteristic to plasma display panels, i.e. the pixels themselves illuminate at high speed. This means that the system is able to identify and show the pen position at a rate of 60 times per second on each pixel in Full-HD image.

According to company's representative, the invention can be used for in schools and universities. In addition, it can be useful when carrying out business presentations. In case several people need to give a presentation they can use wireless connection to do it.

The digital pen developed for the system has a multipurpose button that one can use to switch to the drawing menu display. Thus there's no need to use the toolbar on the screen.

The Interactive Plasma Display is expected to appear on the market in July. By the end of 2012 the company plans to launch larger versions measuring 85- and 103-inches.
