MultiTouch Partners With Riolab to Expand Interactive Display Installations in South America

Companies Combine MultiTaction(R) Cells and Riolab's Applications to Provide Interactive Touch Systems for Retail and Public Service Projects, Including Two State-of-the-Art Installations

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- MultiTouch Ltd., the world leader in interactive display systems, and Riolab, Chile's leading audiovisual, communication and branding company, today announced a new partnership to expand interactive display installations throughout South America. The two companies have already joined forces on two advanced installation projects in Chile. These include the Chuquicamata Underground Mining Project in Chile and showroom installations for cell phone provider ENTEL in Santiago. Each installation demonstrates the demand and wide range of use for interactive display installations in a variety of industries from retail to public service.

Codelco, the largest copper producer in the world, ownerships include the Chuquicamata Copper Mine, the largest open pit copper mine in the world. The Chuquicamata Underground Mining Project (PMCHS) was initiated to transform the copper mine into a first-class underground mine; however, this raised concerns that had to be addressed with the public and various stakeholders. Riolab developed a new communication software platform specifically for Codelco's needs. This information hub allowed specific user groups, such as engineers, government officials and general public, to interact with project plans, read environmental data and view 3D renderings of the PMCHS project using MultiTaction displays.

ENTEL, the largest cell phone carrier in Chile with over four million subscribers, was looking to provide customers the ability to compare products and interact with product photos -- just as if they were holding it in their hand. Two ENTEL showrooms were equipped with MultiTaction cells allowing customers to browse product lines, review sales and promotions, view 3D imaging of phones and do side-by-side comparison of products. Riolab used its NetShow software platform to allow content collaboration while MultiTouch's internet-based content manager saved the company time and money in developing content and updating multiple displays from one location.

"We have worked with MultiTouch on other projects and knew their MultiTaction displays combined with our narrative interface and content software would provide the best solution for the Chuquicamata Underground Mining Project and ENTEL's showrooms," said Francisco Arevalo, CEO of Riolab. "Working with MultiTouch's technology has produced a perfect blend of innovation and imagination for our customers and allowed us to stay consistent with our mission of producing solutions that enhance the user experience."

"We are excited to partner with Riolab. This marks an important milestone for MultiTouch as we expand our business in South America," says Timo Korpela, General Manager of MultiTouch Americas. "These two state-of-the-art installations show that large-scale interactive displays and applications are a global phenomenon and South America's growing economy shows the way for the rest of the world."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
