My-T-Touch® To Be Integrated Into ViewPad® Tablet
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., September 1, 2002 - IMG, the leading supplier of onscreen utilities for pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems, announced today that it has signed an OEM license agreement with ViewSonicâ, a worldwide Visual Technologiesä company. Under terms of the agreement, ViewSonic will integrate IMG's My-T-Touch® programmable onscreen keyboard utilities with ViewSonic's ViewPad tablet.
Equipped with a mobile Intel® Celeron® processor 800MHz and the Microsoft Windows® 2000 Professional Operating System, the ViewPad 1000 Tablet PC gives complete network access with built-in WAN, LAN and Wi-FiTM wireless LAN connectivity.
The ViewPad 1000 is ideally suited for value-added resellers and system integrators selling mobile vertical market applications. This innovative device gives users mobile access to information, captures, sends and receives live images (it's got a Digital CCD Camera - 15fps streaming video and still photos), and shares information of all kinds for a rich multimedia viewing experience.
My-T-Touch simplifies data entry by eliminating the need for an external keyboard. It can be integrated so that keyboards and panels only appear when needed and can be put away when not in use. On a secure network, the keyboard will automatically launch with the login window, so the operator can logon and off as needed. Keys and panels can be customized to control access and sized to permit accurate entry even with large gloved hands.
"IMG's onscreen keyboard utility is an ideal complement to ViewSonic's ViewPad for a wide variety of applications, said Jerry Hussong, IMG's vice president of sales. "With ViewSonic's strong presence in key markets, IMG benefits from the increased customer exposure and ViewSonic's excellent reputation."
The My-T-Touch (My-Typing-Pen, Soft or Touch Keyboard) product line offers more than 45 programmable, infinitely sizeable, U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards, with an unlimited number of programmable macro buttons and panels. The main focus of the product line is for use in pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems as an alternative to physical keyboards and membrane panels. The latest release provides full support for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP platforms (with optional Citrix / MS Terminal Services). Prior releases required different products for different versions.
IMG's products are written at the Windows kernel or services level, unlike an onscreen keyboard or panel developed in a database, browser, Active-X, Java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic. This allows IMG to offer complete control over all Windows functions and applications, including ctrl/alt/del, network logons and passwords. Security features allow control over the user input.
My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, and My-T-Touch retail for $99.95. OEM, private label, and customized versions are available. Additional information and graphics are available at http://www.myttouch.com.
