Just in time to show off some touch interactive experiences at Digital Signage Expo 2013, Almo Professional A/V announces a distribution agreement with Elo Touch Solutions, a provider of touch-enabled Interactive Digital Signage technology.

Almo Pro A/V becomes Elo’s “go-to distributor in the A/V market for all their touch solutions,” says VP of marketing Melody Craigmyle, adding that the distributor is excited to ink a deal that was in the works for several months.

A big emphasis within Almo Pro A/V’s DSE 2013 booth will be on the distributor’s newer partners, Craigmyle says. As such, Attendees will be able to interact with the Elo 42-inch Interactive Digital Sign, showcasing examples of retail and healthcare applications.

From Almo Pro A/V’s press release:

“The Elo team is excited to engage with the Almo digital signage thought leaders and certified Pro A/V technology experts,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO Elo Touch Solutions.  “Together we will help resellers and end-users realize the possibilities for digital signage to help education, government, hospitality, healthcare, and retail organizations enhance their audience experience and optimize communications efficiency.”

“Our resellers are experiencing increasing demand for large format touch-enabled displays,” explained Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V. “We’re partnering with Elo Touch Solutions because they provide a broad portfolio of screen sizes and touch technologies our resellers can incorporate into their projects with the service and support to back Elo’s innovative products.”

Elo Interactive Digital Signage
Elo IDS displays are designed to provide reliable performance in challenging public environments with a durable steel chassis and tempered pure glass.  Multi-touch and gesture support enable intuitive touch with a finger, gloved hand, prosthetic, stylus, credit card, and/or pen.  Optional, slide-in computing modules feature Intel® Core™ i3 or i5 processors to enable the IDS to become an integrated all-in-one unit with simplified installation and maintenance.  The Elo IDS also supports the Intel Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) to integrate with other OPS-compliant computing modules.
