The City of Camarillo’s state-of-the-art, $24 million, 65,000 square foot public library uses, CyberTouch touch screen LCD monitors to automate the library. Uses of the monitors include book, DVD, CD, and audio book check out and return and a self-service copy and fax area, reservations for community rooms and conference rooms.
The City of Camarillo purchased 25 Orion 17? 4:5 units with USB connections (CyberTouch part number O1701U).The project required touch screen monitors for high-traffic zones such as copy kiosks, check-out stations, and reservations kiosks that were are slated to be unattended and unsupervised. The City selected the Orion 17, which is extremely rugged and designed specifically for professional AV environments.
The Orion 17 was an ideal choice for the Library because of its versatility; it can be used as a desktop unit or attached to a flexible arm via Vesa mount. The type of touch screen used in the Orion 17 (resistive touch screen technology) was also a decisive factor in choosing CyberTouch. Resistive technology enables users to interact with the monitor with any stylus, finger, fingernail, or gloved hand; other touch technologies such as capacitive did not meet the City’s strict standards for reliability.
Another great advantage CyberTouchV Orion 17 offers is its seamless connectivity with the Creston system used in the Community Room that is a multi-function space used for business, government, and community events.
Incorporating a reliable and durable 8-wire resistive touch screen, the Orion 17 touch surface is protected by a chemical and abrasion resistant polycarbonate overlay. The Orion 17 responds to the touch of a finger, stylus, or a gloved-hand. Orion 17 interacts with most software applications, keyboard and mouse after installation of driver software. The Orion 17 uses an NEC, model number LCD71V-bk with 1280x1024 resolution and is available in both USB and Serial communication interfaces.
