Ideum has announced a major update to its 65-inch Presenter Touch Wall Display. The new model is now just two inches (50.8 mm) thin, is available in display-only or with built-in computing and connectivity options, and includes RFID technology.

The new Presenter's 65-inch LED LCD HD display is housed in an aircraft-grade aluminum frame that's half the thickness of the model before it, with a 1.25-inch (31.75-mm) bezel. It tips the scales at 130 pounds (58.9 kg), is supplied with a standard VESA mount back plate and features a solid state optical multitouch system capable of registering over 32 simultaneous touch points. It also has an impressive 30,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a luminance of 500-nit at 120 Hz.

A new modular approach gives buyers the choice of the display on its own or with an integrated CPU and connectivity box. The latter features an Intel Core i7-2720QM processor running at 2.2 GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX560 GPU with 1 GB of dedicated video memory, 8 GB of DDR3 system memory, 512 GB of solid state storage, and integrated stereo speakers with a rated output of 10 W. Connectivity is represented by HDMI in and out, USB 2.0, RFID, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The system can be upgraded to include 16 GB of RAM and two 512 GB SSDs and is currently shipping with Windows 7 but is Windows 8 ready. A lifetime GestureWorks SDK license and a collection of Open Exhibits modules is also included.

The new Presenter is ready to grace Board Room walls, design labs, museums or even homes, though you'll need to contact Ideum direct for details of pricing.

Sticking oily fingers on an LED screen is NOT the future of computing. Can you imagine what one of these in a public area would look like after 24 hours? Even in a home, you would be constantly cleaning this. Human fingers and hardware just don't match.


@enntense Fella, that has to be the one of the most ill-founded comments I have ever seen here. Touch screens get used all the time in public areas like shopping centres for navigation and the work absolutely fine. So in response to your question yes I can imagine exactly what it looks like after 24 hours. A barely impercetible difference. You also seem to have forgotten that 90% of the world current generation of smartphones are touch screen driven. I don't know about you but I don't happen to carry windex and a cloth with me so I can wipe down my phone after I make a call or browse the web. The same goes for my tablet. Sorry dude, but not only is your comment hopelessly ill-informed but it adds literally nothing to the discussion.

When's the last time you, and 30 kids ran their hands all over your HDTV in your living room? I'm guessing never, because you wouldn't be able to see anything, and you wouldn't allow it.


Great for schools, museums, Univs, labs alone. Or for Hotel lobbies: guests touch screen for services etc etc.
