METHUEN, Mass. (Business Wire) -- 3M Touch Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M Company, today announces the availability of its newest high-performance multi-touch display designed specifically for multi-user collaborative applications, the 46-inch 3M™ Multi-Touch Display C4667PW. With the ability to track up to 60 simultaneous touches, this commercial-grade chassis display is ideal for applications that require two or more users to work independently or as a group in interactive table or wall-mount configurations.

“The 46” C4667PW chassis display is our largest multi-touch display to date and helps redefine on-screen collaboration possibilities,” says Diego Romeu, global business unit manager, 3M Electronic Business Solutions. “This new display is an ideal solution for companies developing multi-user applications that are looking for the reliability, robustness, and touch performance needed for commercial environments.”

The C4667PW chassis display offers high-performance multi-touch interactivity (at a fast 10 millisecond touch response rate), high-definition graphics (1920x1080 resolution and 178 degree viewing angles), and sleek, flat front surface industrial-design capability. In addition, the C4667PW chassis display is specifically designed for high-use environments with a robust all-metal housing and chemically-strengthened 1.9 mm glass with an anti-glare finish to help ensure product longevity and premium image quality.

The 3M Multi-Touch Display C4667PW is based on 3M projected capacitive technology – the same touch technology found in smart phones and tablets – so unlike other large-format touch technologies multi-touch performance is unaffected by environmental lighting conditions. Also, the C4667PW chassis display features a stylish flat front surface design that makes it an attractive addition to any professional or commercial environment.

The 3M Multi-Touch Display C4667PW and the rest of the 3M Multi-Touch Display line is available from these leading U.S. distributors: BlueStar, Ingram Micro, ScanSource, SYNNEX, Tech Data, popular on-line retailers, and 3M's on-line store,
