Ocular and KOE Showcase Compatible Products at SID Display Week

June 4, 2012

DALLAS, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics (KOE), formerly Hitachi Displays, has paired with Ocular LCD, Inc. to showcase enhanced display solutions that incorporate high-functioning TFTs with extremely durable projected capacitive touch panels. Ocular and KOE have full solution demonstrations featured in each of their tradeshow booths this week at the SID Display Week exhibition in Boston.

Announced just days before the SID Display Week tradeshow, Ocular’s largest Crystal Touch: TRUE Multi-Touch projected capacitive touch panel measures 17.0-inches diagonally and has been integrated with KOE’s 17.0-inch PRO-MED TFT for a full, interactive demonstration. KOE will also feature an 8.0″ Crystal Touch panel, incorporated with their Rugged Plus 8.0″ IPS TFT, at the exhibition.

KOE and Ocular are leaders in the embedded technology industry. Both companies provide expertise in their designated areas and have previously collaborated on several solutions for customers.

“We have been working with Hitachi Displays/KOE for multiple years and we are impressed by the level of knowledge they provide,” said Paul Massey, senior vice president of marketing and sales at Ocular. “Many customers ask us to recommend compatible TFTs to integrate with our Crystal Touch projected capacitive touch panels since Ocular does not manufacture TFTs. Due to positive past experiences, we are happy to recommend KOE products and appreciate that they do the same for us when customer requirements call for advanced projected capacitive touch interfaces, integrated with a TFT.”

“Ocular’s technology and knowledgeable staff make the decision to recommend their projected capacitive touch panels an obvious one,” said Ray Long, manager of technology and markets, at KOE Americas. “As a fellow industry leader, we combine our years of experience to provide superior touch/ display solutions to a variety of industries and applications.”

View full demonstrations of Ocular’s projected capacitive touch panels integrated with KOE’s TFTs at Booth 855 and Booth 419.
