NVision rolls out new product
HANCOCK COUNTY — NVision Solutions Inc. has released NVTouch, a multi-touch, multi-user surface computer. The NVTouch provides a more engaging way to interact with digital information using touch.
NVision launched U.S. sales of the system with installations at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and the NASA Stennis Space Center Emergency Operations Center in Mississippi. These systems were installed as part of a NASA-wide installation of NVision’s HazNet Emergency Management System.
The heart of the NVTouch is an off-the-shelf Microsoft Windows computer, coupled with a projection system and infrared sensing technology resulting in a 42-inch interactive touch table.
Surface computing is a new way of interacting with computers that moves beyond the traditional keyboard and mouse experience. It is a natural user interface that allows anyone to interact with digital content the same way they have interacted with physical objects such as photos, paper and maps their entire life — with their hands, with gestures and by putting real-world objects on the surface.
“The NVTouch Surface Computer is one of the most innovative technologies we’ve seen,” said Socorro Harvey, NVision president. “It draws people into our cutting-edge geospatial applications in a whole new way. This system is already used in the defense, medical, and retail industries in Europe. NVision is bringing this technology to the U.S.”
NVision manufactures the tables in Mississippi at the Stennis Technology Park. In addition to customer sales, NVision also provides the system for customers using NVision’s emergency management and emergency exercise services for federal and local government, educational institutions and sports industry clients.
