Touch screen overlay for an engaging experience

VisualPlanet is the founder of TouchfoilTM, an innovative touch screen film that can be used to create interactive and immersive experiences.

When applied to glass and then a standard LCD screen, the touch screen overlay uses micro-fine copper sensing elements to deliver touch performance. Utilising multi-touch technology, each foil can respond to up to 32 touches.

Several people can use the interactive display simultaneously, making it an experience that everyone can share together.

Available in sizes ranging from 15 to 85 inches, the touch screen foil is ideal for large format display applications. Simply apply to the back of glass to turn any small, medium, or large display into a touch-sensitive surface.

VisualPlanet’s projected capacitive (PCAP) touch foil is waterproof and rugged, ensuring you can use it for indoor and outdoor applications. You can maximise your return on investment (ROI) anywhere and in any weather.

By working with leading glass manufacturers to design the touch glass, VisualPlanet guarantees a quality product that will turn your standard displays into interactive displays.

Touch screen overlay for a range of applications

In creating a unique and engaging experience, touch screen film is ideal for a wide range of interactive applications, including:

  • Gaming machines
  • Vending machines

  • Table-tops
  • Interactive digital signage
  • Industrial touch screens
  • Shop windows

A standard piece of non-interactive glass between 2 millimetres and 10 millimetres can be used for any of these applications when TouchfoilTM is applied.
