Greening Auckland Airport
Auckland Airport touchscreenWe recently completed the supply of two 46” LCD touchscreens, the operation equipment and installation at Auckland Airport's new terminal. The terminal was built to service the new Airbus A320 aircraft. It was built to US “Leed” carbon reduction guidelines.

We also produced the content telling the story of the Greening of The Airport. The touchscreen programmes allow users to find out the steps were taken by the airport to gain LEED accreditation and steps to reduce carbon. The content was produced in Adobe Flash.

Intercom Museums Conference
The international museums conference Intercom 2008, was held in Rotorua during November 08. There were some really good presentations from museum directors and curators around the world. The highlight was the presentation by Ralph Appelbaum by video from New York. Ralph is acknowledged as the world’s leading museum interpretive designer. He discussed many of his major projects, which cover some of the best museums and cultural sites in the world. His theme was “How do you build a visitor experience that can be found nowhere else?” His touch tables where one can share information with others were particularly inspiring.

First Light Adjusting Touch Window in New Zealand

Stratford Touch WindowTCP has supplied and installed a touch window tourist information system to the Stratford i-Site. The touch window is the first of its sort in New Zealand. Inside the window is a 32” hi-bright light adjusting LCD display. The key feature is the ability to automatically adjust the screen brightness with ambient light conditions. The screen has a very high brightness that allows viewing in full sunlight but at night-time the brightness is cut right back. A Visual Planet transparent touch foil inside the window controls the interactive features and means there are no parts on the outside of the window. See a story online here. To see a touch window in action on Youtube video, click here.

On this project we developed a new touchscreen content management system, TouchTerminal to allow our customers to update touch window and touchscreen content. TouchTerminal includes an extension for the leading Internet content management system, Joomla. With TouchTerminal, users do not see a web interface, rather the screen looks like any museum interactive touchscreen exhibit or a touchscreen in a public place, just content and buttons. It also features atimeout a to a “Flash” attract loop to get users attention.
