Elo TouchSystems Announces Production of iMac Indigo 400 MHz with iTouch "Touch-on-Tube" Technology

Orlando, Florida-April 22, 2001-Elo TouchSystems, the global leader in touch technology and a unit of Tyco Electronics, announces the production of an all-in-one touchcomputer combining Elo's iTouch technology and Apple Computer, Inc.'s newest iMac Indigo 400 MHz.

The iMac Indigo 400 MHz features Elo's unique iTouch "touch-on-tube" surface wave touchscreen technology. The iMac Indigo 400 MHz with iTouch is available now and can be seen in Elo booths #225 and #227 at KioskCom 2001 held in the Renaissance Orlando Resort at Seaworld, Orlando, Florida, from April 22 through April 25, 2001.

"Elo's iTouch 'touch-on-tube' technology is the only touchscreen solution for Apple's iMac that completely preserves iMac design and image quality because it places the touchscreen directly on the CRT surface," says Scott Smith, kiosk market manager for Elo TouchSystems. "Turning the CRT itself into a touchscreen eliminates the need for intrusive overlays and preserves 100 percent of the brightness, clarity, antireflection and color properties that have made the iMac such an overwhelmingly popular choice." According to Smith, Elo decided to standardize on Apple's iMac Indigo 400 MHz because, in addition to the product's normal array of attractive features, it also offers FireWire connection and is AirPort-ready, all at an affordable price.

Elo's iMac Indigo 400 MHz with iTouch is being used successfully in public access applications such as:

  • Retail sales, including auto showrooms, bookstores, specialty shops and more
  • Interactive presentations at museums and exhibitions
  • Self-service transactions
  • Listings at real estate offices

The iMac Indigo 400 MHz with iTouch is also the excellent, ready-to-go education tool and the natural interface to aid learning in such applications as:

  • Special education/assistive learning
  • Preschool learning
  • Early child development
  • Campus information status
  • Library systems

In addition to its powerful 400 MHz PowerPC G3 processor, the iMac Indigo 400 MHz with iTouch features 64MB of PC100 SDRAM, a 10GB Ultra ATA hard disk, a 24X CD-ROM drive, two 400Mbps FireWire ports, an optional AirPort base station, and 512K backside level 2 cache.
