MicroTouch Announces Bravo Slide-On Touchscreen Kit for Philips Flat-Panel Monitor

METHUEN, Mass., Aug 31, 1999 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MicroTouch Systems, Inc. the world leader in touchscreen products, today announced the North American introduction of Bravo, a 15" user-installable touchscreen for the Philips Brilliance 151AX flat-panel monitor.

Jointly developed in Europe by MicroTouch and Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands, Bravo supplies the growing number of Philips users a cost-effective alternative for adding touch to an existing system. Users simply slide Bravo onto the Philips monitor after removing the existing bezel and plug in the serial controller to the back of the monitor. The Bravo kit consists of a capacitive touchscreen with bezel, controller, software CD, Bravo QuickStart Guide, and a five-year touch component warranty. This complete slide-on touchscreen solution is available immediately and priced at $584.

Philips monitors have superior picture clarity and an ultra-slim design. The Bravo slide-on kit incorporates a new bezel with a MicroTouch anti-reflective touchscreen. Since Bravo replaces the existing Philips bezel, the ultra slim design is maintained. The Philips Brilliance 151AX takes up one-sixth the depth, consumes about one-third the power, and generates significantly less heat than a comparable CRT monitor.

"The Bravo product has been popular among Philips customers in Europe since it's release in December 1998. We anticipate the same positive response and demand from Philips users in the U.S.," said Kelly Corbeil, Product Marketing Manager at MicroTouch.

MicroTouch's Bravo product uses capacitive touchscreen technology, which is the most responsive and durable in the industry, providing the shortest touch contact requirement, high resolution, and superior accuracy. Monitors incorporating MicroTouch capacitive touch technology stand up to rough handling, are scratch-resistant, and impervious to screen contaminants such as dirt, water, grease and chemicals.
