Toppan Significantly Improves Aerial Touch Display and Doubles Viewing Angle

15 September 2021: Toppan, a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials and electronics solutions, developed an original aerial touch display in October 2020, meeting needs for contactless touch panel operation. While verification of feasibility for full-scale commercial availability is being conducted, Toppan has now developed a next-generation model with a significantly expanded viewing angle and improved clarity for aerial images. The new model will be installed in the elevator halls on the office floors of Tokyo Midtown Yaesu, a building complex scheduled to be opened in central Tokyo in August 2022.

Tokyo Midtown Yaesu is due to be equipped with a variety of technologies to help combat the spread of COVID-19 and create an office environment in which people can work with peace of mind in the post-COVID-19 era. Access control systems employing facial recognition and automatic doors for each area will enable office workers to follow routes from the building entrance to their respective offices without having to touch any surfaces.

Until now, users have had to physically press up and down buttons to call elevators and then the buttons for the floors they want to go to. “The improved model of our aerial touch display enhances user-friendliness with even better visibility and also requires less power than the previous model,” said Takeshi Iwano, General Manager of display marketing in Toppan’s Electronics Division. “In an era in which society is living with COVID-19, Toppan will drive the adoption of aerial touch displays as key devices for enabling contactless operation in offices, other facilities, and for a range of equipment.”

Features of the improved aerial touch display:
1) Visible scope of aerial images doubled
2) Significant improvements in resolution and image clarity
3) 50% reduction in power consumption
