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.
