[MD1] Elo TouchSystems' iTouch Touchscreen

Elo TouchSystems Introduces

Business Wire - April 28, 1999 14:57

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 28, 1999--Elo TouchSystems,
Inc., global leader in touch technology and a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Raychem Corporation (NYSE:RYC), today announces that iTouch(TM),
Elo's latest surface wave technology, will be used on iMac, Apple's
market-leading consumer Macintosh. The iTouch-enhanced iMacs were
introduced in April at KioskCom 99, San Francisco, CA.

"Elo's new "touch-on-tube" iTouch surface wave technology, is the
clearest, most responsive touchscreen technology for the kind of
self-service and public access applications that are fueling the
demand for kiosk solutions in many vertical markets," says Annemarie
Feely, Elo market manager for kiosk applications. "As a proven leader
and preferred supplier for kiosk applications according to Summit
Research, we are uniquely positioned to bring the power of iMac to
these applications." In that survey, Francine Mendelsohn, president
of Summit Research Associates, states that the majority of
respondents indicated a preference for Elo touchmonitors.

"iMac was designed as an easy to set up, powerful consumer computer
that combines the simplicity of the Macintosh with the excitement of
the Internet," says Tom Boger, iMac worldwide product manager at
Apple Computer. "Because of iMac's stunning design, outstanding
graphics performance and gorgeous screen, Elo's iTouch technology can
turn the world's best consumer computer into a great interactive
kiosk."

The touch technology gracing the face of iTouch-enhanced iMacs
represents a major breakthrough in touch technology development that
allows Elo to direct surface waves onto the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT)
for touch sensing. "No overlay on the CRT means the highest quality
image possible," says Steve DeLateur, vice-president of research and
development at Elo. "Durability, another important feature for the
public access environment, will also improve greatly because the CRT
faceplate is several times stronger than a touchscreen overlay." In
addition, the iTouch-enhanced iMac utilizes an integrated USB
controller/driver where other iMac touch solutions require an added
attachment to convert serial to USB.

"Elo designed the new iTouch technology specifically to enhance the
brightness and clarity, without jeopardizing the no drift, stable
performance, and proven reliability of surface wave technology," says
DeLateur. "All of that remains unchanged -- Elo's latest innovation
to touch technology simply takes surface wave to a higher level of
performance," he says.

Elo's new iTouch technology challenges traditional overlay
touchscreens by presenting a new, better, touch solution. Elo is the
only touch provider in the industry to offer a touch solution that
preserves the functionality, image quality and outward appearance of
iMac.

Marketing samples are available for evaluation, with actual product
