Chinese GeneralTouch to Debut PIT Technology in America at CES 2013

GeneralTouch Technology Co., Ltd, a supplier of touchscreen and touchmonitor solutions, today stated that its newly patented Project Infrared Touch (PIT) technology is to make its American debut at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The company's PIT products will be shown from January 8 to January 11 in booth 35436 and 35637 in South Hall 4.

With the rapid worldwide adoption of smartphones and tablets, recent years have been filled with new touch solutions and products. Its use has also increased as touch technology becomes integrated into other products and scenarios. In fact, with the release of Windows 8, touch technology has become more commonplace even on the PC.

As such, GeneralTouch's PIT technology is fully compatible with Windows 8 and promises to be an all-new touch solution that has built upon the advantages of other touch technologies, while eliminating their inbuilt limitations.

PIT products are available in screen sizes as small as 10.4 inches and as large as 55 inches, making them well suited for all-in-one PCs and other applications. Primary advantages of PIT technology include superior multi-touch performance that is much smoother and more responsive than other technologies, and a near flat design with extremely small bezels.

Best of all, PIT is able to deliver this first-class performance at a lower cost than other IR touch products. In other words, this technology delivers the same or better functionality at a lower price.

GeneralTouch Tehcnology Co. was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Chengdu, China.

This year's CES will also feature a number of other exciting advancements in fields other than touch technology, particularly wireless technology. Indeed, wireless technology in particular is expected to carry the future of computing as it is embedded in everything from cameras to refrigerators. Of course, smartphones will continue to be the most popular of the wireless devices, with smartphone revenue expected to hit $37 billion by the end of 2013.
