Zytronic touch shows the way in Helsingborg
Zytronic, a leader in custom designed, high performance Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™ and MPCT™) touch sensors, announced that the Swedish city of Helsingborg has selected Infinitus digital signage kiosks based on its touch sensors for a network of interactive outdoor digital totems for residents and visitors to the city.
Helsingborg, with a population of 100,000, is a popular place to live and visit, not least because of its proximity to Copenhagen. The city authorities made a decision to create an outdoor network of 6 custom touch interactive digital totems to message citizens and help tourists find their way around. They needed custom designed units that would work reliably in the very cold Scandinavian winters, requiring the minimum of attention on-site after installation.
Helsingborg chose Infinitus “imotion”; G6 kiosks, with a 47” touch screen based on Zytronic PCT™ touch screen technology. The touch screens in the units work reliably down to -40°C – well below the coldest recorded winter temperature in the city. The 2.000 nit luminance output super high bright LCD panel is designed to be easily readable in bright sunlight. The system is rugged and vandal proof, and is additionally protected with audio alarm and shock sensors. To increase audience engagement the units have an integrated Wi-Fi hot spot allowing users to connect to the internet, and either transfer data, or download kiosk contents to their mobile phones.
Johan Stegö , New business developer of Infab AB, Infinitus local partner, said, “The kiosks are being used to promote town activities, events, local business and tourist sights. An important feature is the regional wayfinding facility that helps residents and visitors alike to orientate themselves better, and access more complete information about options in the area.”|

|Zytronic brings new touch technologies to China at C-Touch
25 November 2016 – 26 November 2016
Shenzhen, stand 1B-205
A spectacular curved interactive video wall is the centrepiece of the Zytronic presence at C-Touch (Shenzhen, 24-26 November, stand 1B-205). Zytronic, a leader in custom designed, high performance Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™ and MPCT™) touch sensors will also exhibit new object recognition functionality, and force sensing technology on large format touch screens for the first time in China.
Ian Crosby, vice president of sales and marketing at Zytronic, said, “Zytronic leads the way in custom designed, large format touch screens and we are proud to bring new technologies to the Chinese market at C-Touch. We are seeing growing demand in China for interactivity in public areas and we are adding a new dimension to this by demonstrating a curved wall consisting of three linked 46” touch screens, creating a wrap-around touch surface. In addition, we are offering application developers two new technologies. Force or pressure sensing technology is gaining popularity in handheld consumer devices, and we are now making this capability available on large touchscreens in public locations, providing self-service system developers a fantastic opportunity to innovate. Object recognition provides an additional way of engaging the user and by offering this capability on large touch tables, we are helping developers to create a more immersive experience especially in high end retail applications.”
Force sensing on Zytronic PCT™ and MPCT™ touch sensors allows developers of ATMs, kiosks, game terminals and interactive video walls to differentiate between a soft and hard touch. Force or pressure sensing is becoming available on smartphones and tablets. Zytronic is a pioneer in bringing it to financial, retail, gaming, industrial and other commercial touch screen applications. Zytronic’s approach is based on a measurement of the surface area of an applied touch, which changes the measured capacitive signal levels at the relative touch location on the sensor. This eliminates the need for a piezo-electric or other layers on the glass to measure applied force or pressure.
Developed in collaboration with Tangible Display, the Zytronic object recognition functionality is available on touch tables up to 85” in diagonal. The two companies believe this is the first time that camera-free object recognition functionality has been made available on capacitive touch screens of this size. The solution is based on the attachment of physical markers to the objects – it does not require modification of the touch table hardware. A key advantage of the combined Zytronic and Tangible Display technology is that non-conductive objects such as pens, bags or garments are ignored|
|Results out 13/12/16.
should be very positive, looking at the contracts they are picking up.|
|igoe i've bought quite a few ZYT over the recent sessions, quite illiquid though but quality management team. On an FA level improving margins, Quality balance sheet with lots of cash and consistant growth in retained earnings, decent cash flow too. Strong dividend and good recent TS as well. The TA follows

|Don`t blame you woodcutter, this could well rocket over the next few years, these (MPCT)large tablets ETC, could be popping up everywhere globally.
ITS WORTH looking the companies twitter feed every couple of days.|
|been accumulatiing on several occasions over the last few sessions, good yield solid balance sheet and chart forming a morning star doji candle reversal pattern.
margin improvement at H1 looks good for the future.
|nice write-up here.
|Hyundai creates 80 digital dealerships with Zytronic based touch tables.
The 80-strong Hyundai car dealer network in Turkey has moved to a digital dealership model, following the installation of 43” diagonal touch tables created by Nerotouch, using custom designed 40-point multi touch MPCT™ Projected Capacitive Technology touch sensors supplied by Zytronic. A further 10-20 tables are expected to be installed in shopping malls, exhibition areas and other venues in the country within the coming months
busy times ahead.
ps. hopefully Hyundai roll it out globally ? and other car dealerships follow suit, it could be massive for zyt if it kicks off.
|Valuation in header updated to reflect trading statement.|
|I'll never forget Trap Oil paying to get out of its oil price hedge just before the drop in oil prices, which meant that when the oil price collapsed they actually went bust. If that does not show the general idiocy of UK management nothing does.|
|Could be the overdraft!
The Group maintains an overdraft facility, which
it utilises in US Dollars and Euros, as part of
the hedging of its FX exposure. To complement
this, the Group also has an FX policy in place
whereby it is hedged in both currencies for a
minimum period of twelve months ahead up to
a maximum period of 18 months ahead to better
manage its net GBP inflows. As the timing of
the receipts is difficult to accurately forecast,
a sensitivity analysis has been applied to determine
a portion of the expected net exposure to be
hedged with any other surplus currency being
managed in the month in which it occurs.|
Agree, they also have a natural hedge in that they buy materials in Euro/USD for a decent portion of the sales they achieve in those currencies.|
|Cautious management who under promise and over deliver.|
|The FX hit is annoying. ZYT is cash rich and had no real need to hedge its currency exposure. No doubt another case of the bank flogging a product that is not really needed and the FD doesn't really understand.|
|Can't quite correlate the statement, significantly ahead of last year (which was 24.7p) and at least in line with market expectations (Stockopedia 25.9p).
The former to me suggests 28p+, whilst the latter 26-27p. Any other interpretations?|
|I thought you would have seen it coming crystalball!
A positive update.
Year on year revenue growth.
"Reported profit before tax for the full year will reflect the impact of a c. GBP0.9m non-cash provision arising from the Group's foreign exchange policy; however, the Group's underlying profit (before this non-cash item) is expected to be significantly ahead of last year and at least in line with market expectations.
A pity about the FX hit.I take it they over hedged.We will have to wait to see what significant is.|
|Should get a trading update next week?|
|Nice rise up from 320p on the chart, looks like a triangle formation, so should break one way or the other, hopefully up.|
|Saying that the Feb Interim statement was inline so i'm probably talking rubbish :-)|
|Thanks Glaws, wasn't one in 2012, subsequent 3 were all ahead of expectation statements so may not get one if inline?|
