GTCO CalComp to integrate My-T-Touch® with its whiteboard and digitizer products
CHATSWORTH, CA. January 25, 2005 -- IMG, the primary supplier of onscreen keyboards, human machine interface designer tools, and pointing device enhancement utilities announced today that it has signed an OEM license agreement with GTCO CalComp Corporation. GTCO CalComp becomes the latest in a series of whiteboard equipment manufacturers to offer or integrate IMG’s My-T-Touch product with its systems.
My-T-Touch (My-Typing-Touch Keyboard) offers more than 200 programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards and panels, can import custom panels from IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool. The product is fully integrateable into a clients hardware or software platform via IMG’s Developers Kit. The main focus of the product is to integrate at the lowest level of the user interface to any pen, tablet, or touchscreen based systems or application, providing an alternative to the physical keyboard or membrane panel. Onscreen keyboards are ideal for use in environments such as automation, field service, instrumentation, kiosks, medical, military, mobile, rugged, whiteboards, or other extremely clean, dirty, or hazardous interactive user environments.
The latest release of the My-T-Soft family provides full support for Win 98 thru Vista, including XP Embedded. My-T-Soft CE supports CE, Mobil PC, and .NET. A thin client version for Citrix / MS Terminal Server is available as My-T-Soft TS. Other platform support such as Linux, Mac, and real-time OS’s are in development at this time. They will be released with interfaces to IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool.
"My-T-Touch provides the perfect complement to GTCO CalComp’s products. Because it is written at the Windows Kernel level, unlike onscreen user interfaces developed in a database, browser, active-x, java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic, it offers complete control over all Windows functions and applications including network logon, passwords, user input, and ID authentication, without conflicts with the operating system, other applications, or the hardware. It’s easy to show or hide the keyboards and unlike physical keyboards or membrane panels, is not subject to vandalism or accidental damage." said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s vice president of sales and marketing.
The IMG My-T-Soft, Touch, Pen, and OnScreen product line offers clients the ability to use pre-built layouts or create their own, via IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and present the user with only the necessary interaction. Keys and Panels can be added or removed from the user interface thereby limiting the user input and options in accordance with the clients needs. The products also work with any serial, USB, or PS/2 type pointing device, making them equally useful in a wide variety of traditional (non - pen, tablet, or touchscreen) based environments.
My-T-Touch retails for $99.95. Private label, OEM, and custom versions are available. Additional information can be found at: www.My-T-Touch.com
