Zytronic announces new Projected Capacitive true Multi-touch technology for rugged environments.
April 4, 2013, ASSEN Netherlands. Zytronic is the supplier to ILS of the special touch technology in its unique lectern ILS22GLS. The announcement of new multi-touch technology coming available this year will allow ILS to upgrade its ILS22G system to the next level of performance. Palm reject technology will allow comfortable use in the ILS lectern implementation.
ILS MD Henk de Groot commented: "As soon as we can get our hands on the new glass, ILS will plan to implement this in the next generation of the ILS22 series. This combines monitor touch interaction with the keyboard, mouse pad, system and room control and other [backlit when needed] functions outside the monitor area under a single sheet of touch enabled glass".
Zytronic Gregg Brown said: "We were impressed with the detailed response, accuracy and ability to address dense keys that ILS developers achieved with implementing our PCT glass" Watch this space for later announcements. This work complements the solutions in our ILS27 Lenovo Ideacentre 27" multi-touch and ILS24 Speakerscorner ePodium with the new WACOM2242 pen+multi-touch presenter and teaching systems.
ILS back from ISE 2013
Amsterdam, Feb 3, 2013 - ISE Amsterdam was the biggest ever, and ILS correspondingly met up with many more of its current clients as well as hundreds of new contacts. If you have visited our booth: thank you for coming!
As announced we introduced our latest new products: the ILS27L, with 27" Lenovo tabletPC integrated into the lectern's updated shape; the new compact ILS14C (shown cordless on batteries!) and the ILS19P; a cost effective teaching lectern with solid electrical pillar base and pen interactive screen. The ILS22G with its new touch system developed in cooperation with Zytronic UK with its integrated control system again was the highlight that caught the eyes of many of our visitors.
The ILS21H, the Teacher desk and the ILS24H also made an appearance. We demonstrated the recording and streaming package cast-Q on the ILS24 side panel, and our new release of the sho-Q interactive teaching and presentations suite. The ILS16H with its newly machined top of thick aluminum was demonstrated for the first time in Amsterdam; an almost indestructible compact classroom system with built-in 19"rack.
Through our partners the show floor featured 65" Viditouch monitors, with the latest fast and accurate response technology for use in classrooms and corporate boardrooms, Lightspeed's latest portable and installed classroom sound field audio systems and Haijie's Classroom charging system for laptops and tablets. New to the portfolio of ILS lectern systems is Hovercam's attractive compact document cameras that are integrated with several lecterns as a budget alternative to the Wolfvision's cameras we often integrate. A special new design from NigelBdesign brings ILS the perfect lectern audio solution. The system uses 50 mWatt in permanent stand-by, and delivers 80 Watts of power when activated. The quarter-rack-unit sized system easily disappears into any lectern, keeping the controls easily available right from the PC.
Ask us for the updated price list for our range of ILS lecterns.

ILS at Infocomm in Dubai.
Dubai, Oct 19, 2012 ILS had a great Infocomm/GITEX participation in DUBAI enjoying constant customer attention from 200 new contacts. This was the first opportunity for the region to sample so many of ILS lecterns and epodiums such as the new Teacher Desk in the S-3 series, the ILS18, the great ILS24 that has enjoyed 100's of installs in the region already, the ILS21 and the renewed ILS22 were on the booth.
ILS announced its new beautifully sculpted ILS18 from thick aluminum and announced its upgraded version of the ILS22 all glass lectern combining in a unique way under a single touch sensitive glass of 31" the functionality of a 22"dual touch monitor, a keyboard, control system, touch pad and direct short-cut buttons.
The new touch technology based on projected capacitive rather than vibration reflection technology improves the handling immensely. 25% of its visitors expressed an immediate interest in the new ILS22 and orders were received on the spot and the days after the show.
Uri Rosenthal (Minister of Foreign Affairs) and Jacques Tichelaar (Provincial Governor) visit ILS.
Assen, Sept 3, 2012. It was back to school for Uri Rosenthal (the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs) and Jacques Tichelaar (Provincial Governor) when they visited ILS.
After presenting ILS developing, production, and marketing activities (92% of ILS turnover is Export) there was a frank and healthy discussion on employment opportunity and solid government relationships with many countries in the world.
From left to right: Mr. Ticherlaar, Mr Rosenthal, Henk de Groot.
Henk de Groot featured the new ILS18 SpeakersCorner lectern for education while presenting the company. He also showed the new touch technology implemented on its home-grown all-glass covered ILS22 boardroom lectern, a touch technology developed by Hanze Institute of [Sensor] Technology students. ILS' infrared Redcat Soundfield system was used to provide easily audioble sound in any corner of the (class)room.
The presentation included a tour of our local production facility while discussing the impact of providing local employment.
First public showing of the new ILS16 and ILS18.
June 15, 2012, Las Vegas USA First public showing of the new ILS16 and ILS18 compact podiums sculpted out of thick aluminum during the Infocomm in Las Vegas.
In the same time the first dozens of the new type were shipped to customers in UK, Egypt and Germany. The ILS16 has a compact 16.5" wide, 28" deep cabinet with 19" rack, control system and 17 ? 19" wide screen pen interactive monitor and control system and switcher/scaler for adding notebook, document camera and video sources while featuring a12" tilt-adjustable touch panel on the side to serve as second touch monitor, control system monitor etc.
As usual the ILS22G all glass touch system was a show-stopper enjoying lots of interest. With the coming of the V24 series from Crestron, there was significant demand to be able to use the ILS12 VESA mountable compact height adjustable lectern in combination with the new Crestron. This is a wonderful combination allowing the new panel to be used comfortably from a lectern position whether you are seated or 6'6" tall.
New extensive support for control systems inside the ILS range of lecterns.
In cooperation with FHCS, ILS announces its broad control system components support for Creator Platinum product family from both the secondary control panel as well as from the main PC or through a networked environment for the control systems, scalers and matrix switchers up to 16x16.
With the release of it's FHCS_Switcher16 software application package in version 2.05, it supports all previous released Creator switcher models and recently new released Platinum (Pt) series. The Pt series support a much higher bandwidth and resolutions up to HD (1920*1080p) and 1920*1200. New supported models include the component video (YUV) range, HDMI range and just introduced SDI range. The new series also allow control access over TCP/IP (LAN or WiFi), next to RS232 access.
FHCS_Switcher16 is now supporting any Creator switcher controlable model with up to 16 inputs and 16 outputs, whatever the connection type is. Says FHCS: "In this new release we have also build-in Dual-Display support, so that we can support presentation systems with attached touch monitor, such as the ILS16 or ILS24.
Next to that we can now also support WiFi connected tablet-PC's, such as iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab or other Android based devices. And as such, control can be remotely from another PC (LAN connected), laptop (LAN or WiFi connected) or a portable device such as a Tablet-PC.
Amsterdam, January 31, 2012. During Integrated Systems Europe ILS launched its new stylish teacher desk family.
Amsterdam, January 31, 2012. During Integrated Systems Europe ILS launched its new stylish teacher desk family. The new system is totally modular and has flexible width arrangements. It caters for the demands of teachers and lecturers around the globe that teach with electronic means both while seated and standing up.
Here is the ILS3-22 as demonstrated during ISE12 at modest standing height. The height range of the central desk is between 74 and 116 cm. It is instrumental in good teaching that the teacher can stand and lecture while have all tools at his/her fingertips. Sitting down on a regular chair or higher stool will do fine here too!
ILS3-22 lowest and highest positions.
On the left the ILS3 desk is in between the popular ILS24 (front) and the new ILS16 in the back.
The central desk entry point ILS3-12F is without the height adjustment and allows placement of a tower PC in the left edge and vertically place 4 Rack units in the right edge, thus maximizing knee-space below the desk at almost 80 cm. The reversible monitor and on/off is by lock key. All other configurations feature electronics access control by RFID module and a touch button strip to control locks and heights.
ILS3 series central desk surface is adaptable to user needs. Users can choose from 3 monitor attachment packages. When the monitor is not in use, it is rotated upside down and locked. The surface of the desk is flush across the desk. When in use, the monitor is rotated to the comfortable slanted position for interactive pen use. However while leaning back and at the user preference, the monitor can be rotated to hold in any other comfortable viewing angle.
The 3 mounting packages allow for up to 19" 4:3 formatted monitors, for 19" wide monitors and for 24" monitors covering the likes of WACOM 2200 and SMART SP518 and SP525. On request dual monitor installation is possible, to write across 2 monitor surfaces and project on 2 projectors.
Control system: choose from popular brands or allow the default ILS 7" panel, button panel or docking station with controller/scaler switcher to be integrated. The standard electronics touch panel can already provide microphone, lighting, up/down and unlocking controls.
Optional expansion cabinets: For the user, to the left, the ILS3 series offer 2 cabinet options, 40 or 60 cm wide with place for tower PC and pull-out 19" rack behind a locked door and a lockable drawer. In the top there is a cable nook to pull out cables for e.g. notebook or visualizer use.
For the user to the right, there is an option to add a 19" rack cabinet with Lexan glass door or a smaller 19" rack with above it a lift box for a document camera. This is ideal for using e.g. a Wolfvision 9plus, it sinks into the cabinet and closes with a lockable surface. When up, the camera surface is flush with the table, the cover stays vertical to shield the audience from the light.
The 19" rack is on wheels and slides out totally from the cabinet for easy maintenance.
For audio there are microphone options using the Beyerdynamic MPR210 flat wide angle microphone to move freely along the width of the desk, a gooseneck, or an IR-based wireless sound field systems from Lightspeed technologies.
Due to the mix of cabinet placements, the ILS3 series Teacher Desks allow width of the total table to vary from 120 to 160, 180, 220 and 240 cm. Consequently we dubbed the nomenclature of the Teacher Desk family as ILS3-12, ILS3-16, ILS3-18, ILS3-22 and ILS3-24.
Cabinets can be added at a later stage when expansion is needed.
The new ILS16 and the ILS24 Intelligent lecterns fit right with the new range.
This makes the ILS3 family of Teacher Desks perfect for universities requiring a large number of the same style and functionality desks and lecterns tuned to the needs in the various classrooms, labs or lecture halls with larger or smaller space requirements and fewer or more integrated functions.
The ILS Teacher Desks are produced in the Netherlands.
Volume prices ex Works Netherlands start at 2000 euro for ILS3-12F with pen-interactive 19" monitor and room control system that includes line doubling and 6 source switching, IR, relays and digital IO.
June 8, 2010, Las Vegas Infocomm -ILS launches 4 new podium products for teaching and presenting.
Targeting universities, hotels and Pro-AV system integrators.
Adding custom configurability for system integrators, the ILS24HX holds inside the system a 22" pen or touch display, a 12" touch panel for systems control, confidence monitor or teleprompter, a 5" panel area for integrating existing room control systems. The system is like a Swiss army knife, pull out what you need, close and lock the system totally, using identity card reader for secure access. The electrical lift and tilt mechanism allows users to find the best position; a 12U, 19" rack offers space for AV and PC equipment for presenting and streaming solutions. A special side drawer and the rotating 12" panel allow for seated use and ADA compliance. Similar features apply to the new slender version ILS16HX, with a 17" WACOM pen interactive monitor and same 12" side touch panel.
Despite high quality design and thick aluminum cladding, the systems are aggressively priced. System integrators have the opportunity to add a lot of value and move products frequently into universities and hotel meeting facilities.
The new HF versions are all-in-one complete turn-key solutions that large universities, meeting and training facility management easily implement themselves. HF versions come with interactive monitors, complete control systems and high quality audio integrated. ILS Room-Q supports remote assistance, management and streaming applications.
Added to the family is a budget podium version ILS20HJ for volume placements and a new 22" presenter lectern supported by the interactive sho-Q presentation delivery suite.
