Unique PCT Touch Innovations at ICE London
Two unique PCT touch innovations will be unveiled by Zytronic at this year’s ICE London expo. These features, the company believes, will enable game designers to create even more immersive multi-touch experiences for players. These new features will be displayed live on their sleek slot machine simulator on the Eurocoin stand N2-322.
The first new capability, ‘floating’ LED lighting, is featured on the unit’s main 55-inch touch sensor. The LEDs are connected and powered invisibly via a proprietary method embedded on the rear of the sensor within the viewable area of the display. This proprietary technology, also on the virtual button deck, combines ‘floating’ mechanical buttons with multi-touch technology. To further demonstrate Zytronic’s expertise in glass and in-house processing capabilities, the slot simulator has tactile features machined into the surface of the button deck. This second new capability shows how game designers can combine physical and digital technology to guide player’s fingertips across the touchscreen to ensure their eyes remain firmly focused on the exciting gameplay happening on the main screen.
“These two concepts open up completely new design possibilities for game developers and will ultimately help designers of slot machines, electronic table games and wagering terminals, differentiate themselves from the competition.” says Ian Crosby, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Zytronic.
“The gaming sector has recognised that fast, reliable, engaging interactivity are essential in ensuring players come back time and time again” agreed Eurocoin European Sales Director Steve Smith. “We believe that these unique, fully-customisable features will attract a great deal of interest at ICE”
