Many countries enable touchscreen tech

Digital signage system supplier, which provides public information and wayfinding solutions for the Japanese mass transit sector and other municipal spaces, has installed interactive touchscreens in Shinto shrines in Japan, according to a press release.

They have developed a special, touch interactive digital signage system that can be operated remotely. A large touchscreen with high resolution that can withstand long-term use in all weather was essential. This was especially important for the application, as almost all are installed outdoors. Here, a highly reliable touchscreen technology that can perform well in any environment was essential.

The system is now installed outside in the grounds of over 20 Shinto shrines providing multilingual public information, educating overseas visitors how to behave appropriately during their visit.

People used projected capacitive technology touch sensors for the user interface of its public information display.
