Perceptive Pixel to Showcase Its Breakthrough 82-Inch Multi-Touch Display Now Featuring Corning(R) Gorilla(R) Glass at 2012 Consumer Electronics ShowCorning Gorilla Glass Now a Standard Feature on the World's Largest Optically Bonded Multi-Touch Display (January 09, 2012)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/12 -- Perceptive Pixel, the leading developer of advanced user interface solutions, and Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), a world leader in specialty glass and ceramics, today announced that they will be demonstrating a prototype of Perceptive Pixel's 82-inch advanced multi-touch LCD display featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Jan. 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas (Corning Booth, # 12642). This prototype device represents the largest touch display to feature Corning Gorilla Glass, adding Corning's thin, visually stunning and durable glass to the world's largest projected capacitive (pro-cap) flat-panel display technology.
Perceptive Pixel's 82-inch pro-cap flat-panel LCD display is the largest in the company's array of true multi-touch solutions used by professionals across many industries including broadcast, defense and intelligence, energy, oil and gas, and digital content creation. The Perceptive Pixel 82-inch display features unlimited touch points and a remarkably slim form factor measuring just six inches in depth. It is optically bonded for ultra-low parallax, providing the most precise touch experience possible. By integrating Corning Gorilla Glass, Perceptive Pixel opens up new possibilities for organizations to use its 82-inch multi-touch display in a horizontal orientation where there is a greater risk of impact damage.
"We're proud to include Corning Gorilla Glass, the toughest display cover glass on the market, in our revolutionary 82-inch multi-touch LCD display," said David Slobodin, VP hardware engineering, Perceptive Pixel. "Gorilla Glass, combined with optical bonding, gives our customers extra confidence in our display's durability while maintaining the outstanding image quality and ultra-precise, high-fidelity interactive experience Perceptive Pixel is known for."
Continuing a 160-year tradition of innovation in materials science and technology, Corning has engineered Gorilla Glass as an environmentally friendly cover glass for high-end display devices. Corning Gorilla Glass has a unique composition and undergoes a chemical strengthening process, resulting in properties especially suited for use as a durable, scratch-resistant cover.
"Corning Gorilla Glass is ideal for use in the most advanced display technologies in the marketplace, from smartphones to large-scale displays," said Dave Loeber, business director, Large Cover Glass, Corning. "The beauty and toughness of the glass make it the right choice for seamless and sleek designs, while its thinness allows for a high level of sensitivity to handle today's most sophisticated multi-touch applications."
