What Is Capacitive Touch?

Sleek and responsive capacitive touchscreen technology is now available in select InFocus touchscreen displays.

InFocus Capacitive Touch

If you've had an Apple iPhone, then you’ve used a capacitive touchscreen. These displays rely on the electrical properties of the human body to detect when and where on a display the user touches them.

Other forms of touchscreens are resistive, which requires pressure to be applied to the screen surface, and optical IR, which creates and invisible grid of infrared beams across the surface of the display to detect where touches occur.

A form of capacitive touch is called projected capacitive touch (or P-CAP), which allows touches to be sensed through a protective layer of glass.




The Benefits of Capacitive Touch

As you may have noticed on your iPhone, capacitive touchscreens are very responsive and easy to use. Common gestures such as swiping and pinching are a very pleasant experience on capacitive touchscreens. All you need is a gentle touch to scroll through web pages, zoom in and out of maps, draw, and more.

Capacitive touch displays also have a seamless, sleek look, since they do not require an overlay around the edge of the screen like an IR touchscreen does. Thus, you get a true flat front all the way to the four edges of the device.

Projected capacitive touchscreens, which are employed in some of our most recent 40” JTouch whiteboard displays, sense touch through a protective layer in front of the display. This layer makes them very durable, more dust- and moisture-resistant, and usable with some types of gloves, such as those used in the medical field.
