In what has been a year in which adding touchscreen capabilities to any sort of device seemed to be the norm, monitor specialist Iiyama is to introduce a range of ProLite touchscreen displays for medical and professional use.

The 15in ProLite T1530SR screen will cost £329 including VAT – a size and price Iiyama is pushing at the “budget-conscious consumer”.

Iiyama is hoping the robustness of the three-strong touchscreen range, as well as the popularity of the ‘five wire’ touchscreen technology it has chosen, will ensure the displays appeal to a broad range of users.

Iiyama explains: “Five wire resistive technology has proven to be the most popular because it delivers the accuracy, durability, and performance necessary in today’s environment. It is a popular choice as it can be operated while wearing gloves, essential for medical or industrial professions amongst other industries.

As well as the £329 entrylevel model, there will be 17in and 19in versions of the Iiyama ProLite touchscreen monitors.
