LUND, Sweden & Singapore – February 8th, 2016 – Anoto Group AB and Cima NanoTech today announced a collaborative agreement that will combine Anoto’s digital pen technology with Cima NanoTech’s SANTE technology for large format displays. The collaboration will focus on the integration of Anoto’s patented dot pattern into the SANTE® ProTouch projected capacitive touch module to create and offer Anoto Enabled Touch Systems. This initiative brings together Anoto’s leadership in multi-surface precision pen input technology with Cima NanoTech’s innovation in multi-touch display technology, sharing ambitions for market leadership in large format interactive displays through cooperative marketing, business development, sales and technical development initiatives.
“Anoto is laying the groundwork to address core demand for seamless digital input, collaboration, and productivity across all potential writing surfaces,” said Stein Revelsby, CEO of Anoto. “This collaboration with Cima NanoTech fits perfectly into our product portfolio for high-precision touch screen displays from 40-inches and up that work seamlessly with our digital writing instruments.”
Cima NanoTech’s SANTE® self-assembling nanoparticle technology is a conductive coating that forms a random mesh-like network, enabling ultra responsive large touch screen displays ideal for a variety of applications such as interactive digital signage, kiosks, vending machines, tabletops and whiteboards. SANTE ProTouch module will support Anoto’s high-precision digital pen input to form the new Anoto Enabled Touch System, a powerful, interactive, large format display solution for enhanced collaboration and productivity.
“Anoto-inspired creative solutions are a perfect complement to Cima NanoTech. As a company we revel in pushing the boundaries of social experiences through touch, and the integration of Anoto’s precision pen technology with our ultra responsive touch modules will truly take creativity and collaboration to new levels,” said Jon Brodd, CEO, Cima NanoTech. “We are excited that Anoto has chosen SANTE technology as the enabler of Anoto Live.”
