We have become accustomed to Perceptive Pixel’s massive multi-touch screens. The company is now showing off a 82-inch projected capacitive LCD. As a projected screen at 6-inches deep you can consider it thin also being an optically
bonded display it is “the world’s largest” of its type. As for other display types the is an 88-inch DLP model if you are set on the largest you can get. Though the resolution is low for today’s standards the on-screen content is displayed in 1080p HD resolution at 120Hz but with an unlimited multi-touch response time of less than 1ms. This display can handle the multi-tasking touch interface of today.
All 82 inches of it were on display. An 82-inch panel is not a new thing, this display is unique though. Perspective Pixel buys panels from Samsung, removes the inner workings and bonds its own network of sensors directly to it.
Large-screen touch devices often pop a touch layer on top of any TV that shows up in the labs. Company’s method truly increases sensitivity level. A projected capacitive screen is a technology utilized in a few smartphones, including Samsung’s Moment to Apple’s iPhone.

The 27-inch and 82-inch pro-cap displays are far from consumer markets. Priced at $12,000 and $120,000 with the workstation and software included. The 82-inch display is reported to be selling good; pre-orders start next month. The end of 2011 will bring a bigger release.
The most amazing feature is the unlimited acceptance of touch points. Put your fingers on the display, and it calculates the exact point and movement associated. Perceptive Pixel has made one of the most responsive touch panels as of today.
Also there is an available stylus that only works on its panels, with the idea of helping artists hoping to adjust an object with one hand while creating with the other. The consumer frontier is definitely on the company’s radar and will become available once this technology is rightly priced for the mainstream.
