Microsoft has decided to acquire large-scale multitouch display producer Perceptive Pixel.
Perceptive Pixel’s “large touch displays, with combination of hardwares from our OEMs, will make effective Windows 8-based Computers and open up new opportunities for efficiency and collaboration”, Kurt DelBene, president of Microsoft’s Office division, claimed in a combined media release Monday.
“By dealing with Microsoft, we will be capable to take benefit of the huge momentum of the Microsoft Office Division, tightly inter-operate with its products, and supply this systems to a extremely wide set of consumers,” Xinhua cited Jeff Han, originator and chief executive officer of Perceptive Pixel, as telling.
Conditions of the agreement were not exposed by both firms.
Created in 2006, Perceptive Pixel produces high-performance multitouch work stations and “wall solutions”. It came in flash for the giant touch screen applied by CNN in 2008 US presidential polls.
