The MultiTouch partner summit is intended for MultiTouch resellers, developer partners and end-clients
Finland - MultiTouch has announced details of its fourth annual partner summit, which includes an advanced preview of the new MultiTaction 4K 55" display. The main event takes place on 18 September at MultiTouch's headquarters in Helsinki, and is preceded by the MultiTaction Overview & Training event, on 17 September at the same venue. Both events are free to attend, but places are limited so registration is required.

The MultiTouch Partner Summit is intended for MultiTouch resellers, developer partners and end-clients. The annual event promotes the latest developments in MultiTaction interactive display technology, and its applications. This year's event includes a blend of speakers, demos and case studies, from the MultiTouch team, its clients and partners.

The forthcoming MultiTaction 4K 55" Cell boasts four times as many pixels as Full HD displays, and includes increased brightness and stunning definition ¬- for clearer text and application detail - making it optimal for viewing from touching distance. The 4K display - an advanced preview is being demonstrated at the Summit - will provide major benefits for productivity applications, education, presentations, demanding professional applications and flagship installations.

"Our partner summits are always very well attended and received," comments Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch. "And I'm delighted to announce details of this, our fourth event. MultiTouch continues to innovate and push the boundaries of what's possible with multi-touch technology, which is why we remain at the bleeding edge of the industry. Our partners realise that they can attend our summits or other demo days hosted at various locations throughout the year, and get fully up to date with everything that's happening in the industry."

This year's keynote speaker is Elizabeth McGlauflin, VP of customer services at Bluescape. MultiTouch recently collaborated with Bluescape, a Silicon Valley-based company that specialises in delivering cloud-based visual collaboration workspaces. The workspaces are used for sharing ideas, plans and documents, bringing incredibly complex projects to market faster, streamlining the decision-making process, and enabling visual collaboration over distributed physical locations. An important element of the Bluescape experience is the MultiTaction display.

Other speakers with partner presentations and demos include: Steven Kennell, Barge Creative Media, UK; Sebastian Demmerle, NMY Mixed-Reality Communication GmbH, Germany; Thierry Louesse, Fractal Systems, United Arab Emirates. There will also be a surprise guest speaker, closing the event ahead of dinner, drinks and entertainment.
