10-touch infrared capability delivers a smooth and highly responsive multiuser interaction

MILPITAS, Calif. — January 17, 2016 — Elo, a global supplier of digital touchscreen solutions, today unveiled the new 55-inch 5501LT modular interactive digital signage display, featuring 10-touch infrared capability to deliver a smooth and highly responsive multiuser interaction. The infrared touch technology provides higher touch sensitivity, giving the 5501LT a tablet-like performance on a large-format screen. The low-profile design integrates seamlessly into modern interiors for retail, office, hospitality or public space applications, and offers system integrators and value-added resellers a high-performance solution that is easy to deploy and will withstand the heavy use of a commercial setting. The 5501LT is available to order beginning today.

Retailers are turning to touchscreens to unite the online and in-store shopping experience and increase customer engagement, while businesses have used the technology to enhance collaboration in an office setting and increase productivity. The clear-glass 5501LT takes large-format touchscreens to the next level by including 10-touch infrared technology, auto-switching between active input sources to ease use in meeting rooms, and support for serial control input with the use of adapter cables. Additional features include a 1920x1080 full HD resolution display and a high-contrast/brightness LED-backlit LCD panel, delivering undistorted clarity, and a new video input that auto-detects the last good signal from the internal computer module or other external video sources.

“The new 5501LT reinforces Elo’s position as the leader of innovative, large-format touchscreens that are rugged enough to withstand the heavy use of a commercial setting,” said Neeraj Pendse, director of interactive digital signage at Elo. “This combination of high-performance display and a sensitive, reliable touchscreen, further enhances what was already the broadest portfolio of interactive digital signage solutions on the market.”

With a total thickness of 3.4 inches (87 mm), the 5501LT is ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and IBC (International Business Council) compliant for wall-mounted installations. Optional, high-performance computer modules are available, which turn the 5501LT into a completely integrated all-in-one computer — without the need for any cables or additional mounting hardware. Computer modules are available in a choice of three models based on 4th Gen Intel Core processors: ECMG2B-i3 with HD4400 graphics, and ECMG2B-i5 and ECMG2B-i7, both with HD4600 graphics. The 5501LT is available to demo at NRF on January 17-20 in New York City, Elo booth #1302. For more information, visit EloTouch.com.
