ViewSonic establishes joint venture with Hanvon Munich the 08 June 2013 ViewSonic, a world leader in consumer electronics and communication and it solutions, today announced a new joint venture with Hanvon. The Chinese company is specialized in the development of hardware solutions and software, based on technologies to the handwriting recognition. This includes among other things the OCR (optical character recognition). As a result of the joint venture between ViewSonic and Hanvon, a new company is created with the ViewSonic Hanvon touch technology Corporation. The aim of the cooperation is the development of ERT screen modules (electromagnetic resonance touch).
These are required mainly to the growing demand for products for electronic signatures to use e-government solutions and e-paper products. In the education sector more digital solutions demand, in which handwriting recognition plays a central role. Also, the new company will offer high quality and yet affordable products for companies, want to integrate the technologies to the handwriting recognition or solutions for electronic signatures in their products. The ViewSonic Hanvon touch technology Corporation has developed already screen modules and marketable products in different sizes. In the area of the ERT modules have the following dimensions are offered: 11,94 cm (4.7 “), 17.78 cm (7”), 20.32 cm (8 “), 24.64 cm (9.7”), 25,65 cm (10.1 “), 29,46 cm (11.6”), 39.11 cm (15.4 “), 39,62 cm (15.6”), 43,20 cm (17 “), 46,99 cm (18.5”), 48.26 cm (19 “) and 54.61 cm (21.5”). Complete screens that can be operated with a stylus, are already available in the following sizes available: 25,65 cm (10.1 “), 39,62 cm (15.6), 48,13 cm (18.95”) and 54.61 cm (21.5 “).
All products provide high precision and very user-friendly writing and drawing on the screens with the help of a wireless and batteryless pen. The technology allows the respective devices (Tablet PC, Smartphone) or the respective application to gather very detailed information. These include for example the inclination and the pressure of the pen when writing. Thus, drawings and handwritten notes are depicted exactly as a traditional pen and paper would have been used. The ERT technology is a further development of the well known EMR technology (electro magnetic resonance) and makes an important contribution to consume less paper to save costs and protect the environment. Since users usually prefer use a pen as the tips of their fingers to make notes on a screen, the ERT technology is much more intuitive and user-friendly than solutions that rely on touch operation with the fingertips. Due to these advantages, ViewSonic Hanvon touch technology Corporation expects a continues to rapidly rising demand for products in which the digital signature is used. The ViewSonic Corporation headquartered in Walnut (California, United States) is a leading, global set up Companies in the field of computing, consumer electronics and communication technology. Since the company was founded in 1987, ViewSonic focuses on, to be world’s first choice under the brand provider of Visual solutions. The portfolio includes LED monitors, Tablet PCs, projectors, smartphones, digital signage, as well as cloud computing solutions. ViewSonic will also continue to significantly help as paving the way for innovative visual technologies a digital networked future.
