SIGNS OEM AGREEMENT WITH XPLORE TECHNOLGIES
My-T-Pen® To Be Offered with Xplore’s Rugged Tablet Computers
PASO ROBLES, CA, December 08, 2008 – IMG, the leading supplier of onscreen utilities for pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems, announced today that it has updated its OEM license agreement with Xplore Technologies. Under terms of the agreement, Xplore will offer IMG’s My-T-Pen® programmable onscreen keyboard utilities and IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tools with various models of its ruggedized tablet computers.
Xplore has been a leader in the rugged pen-based mobile wireless computing field since 1996. IMG has had a good working relationship with Xplore since 2003 and the two companies have recently expand that relationship. Xplore focuses its solutions on the public safety, retail and wholesale warehousing, utility, military, field service, marine and transportation industries.
My-T-Pen simplifies data entry by eliminating the need for an external keyboard. It can be integrated so that keyboards and panels only appear when needed and can be put away when not in use. On a secure network, the keyboard will automatically launch with the login window, so the operator can logon and off as needed. Keys and panels can be customized to control access and sized to permit accurate entry even with large gloved hands. Custom layouts can be created and imported from IMG’s Build-A-Board Tool.
"IMG’s onscreen keyboard utilities are an ideal complement to Xplore’s rugged computers because they provide a built-in data entry point that can be easily integrated into any vertical market application, said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s Vice President of Sales. "When you place a rugged computer in its ideal environment, external peripherals such as keyboards get damaged, broken or misplaced. They also can’t offer complete operator control, system security, or respond to processes changes over time. IMG’s onscreen keyboards utilities are designed to be embedded in a system, provide complete operator control, and are easily changed or modified to match processes changes."
The My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Pen, Soft or Touch Keyboard) product line offers more than 200 programmable, infinitely sizeable, U.S. and International "3D" onscreen keyboards, with an unlimited number of programmable macro buttons and panels. The main focus of the product line is for use in pen, tablet, and touch pc based systems as an alternative to physical keyboards and membrane panels. The latest release provides full support for Windows 98 thru Vista (including XP Tablet and XP Embedded) platforms (with optional Citrix / MS Terminal Services "thin client"/ Remote Desktop support). Prior releases required different products for different versions.
IMG’s products are written at the Windows kernel or services level, unlike an onscreen keyboard or panel developed in a database, browser, Active-X, Java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic. This allows IMG to offer complete control over all Windows functions and applications, including ctrl/alt/del, network logons and passwords. Security features allow control over the user input.
My-T-Soft, My-T-Pen, and My-T-Touch retail for $99.95. OEM, private label, and customized versions are available. Additional information and graphics are available at http://www.my-t-pen.com.
