Wednesday, April 29, 2009 Releases an IR Buying Guide

So after much confusion and questions from the constant flow of multitouch customers trying to figure out exactly what they need to buy to build their MT setups, Environmental Lights has answered with a PDF buying guide. It breaks the process down for you with descriptions on exactly what to buy and url links to the products so that you can easily find what you need.
Environmental Lights also continues to deliver and respond to the Multitouch community. They have recently increased the brightness of their LED ribbons (from 300 to 390 LEDs), which means the possibility of even larger displays can be made with them and better results all around. The results I have been getting in all my testing with their previous ribbons is exactly what I expect from such high quality products, and this new line of products will be even better.


  1. Well this is good news for my friend and I since we are building a mt-table (rather coffee table) with a 32" LCD HDTV. However we were originally planning on using an LLP instead of a FTIR or a LED-LP setup like you did. From your personal experience though, would you recommend LEDs over lasers or vice versa? And by the way, thank you so much for putting up this blog and your website; they havector helped us on more than one occasion.

  2. For LCD, I would only recommend you do DSI or LLP, as those are the only two methods that will work well.
