TACTISPLAY Walk resolution was changed from 64x48 (3,072) resolution to 60x40 (2,400) for braille display capability. Original pixel pitch (gap between two adjacent pixels or pins) was 2.1mm, which is rather small for braille text display. We increased pixel pitch to 2.5mm for normal braille text display compatibility. Larger pixel gap was compensated with lower resolution.  After modification, this display can show 10 lines of 20 cells, total 200 braille cells. And it can display graphics with 60x40 pixels. Refresh time is set to 8 sec. All other dimensions and weight were not changed.

Tactisplay Corp. launched TACTIS100, multi-line text braille display, having 100 cells. There are many 20, 40, 80 cells braille display in the market. But, all these displays have just one line where TACTIS100 has 4 lines of 25 cells each.

Multi-line functionality enables this display to show spreadsheet contents easily. Using its 4 lines, top line displays title of column when other 3 lines can display column contents. If selected current cells is changing, this display can show cells contents around the selected one.

In the text braille reading, its 100 cells will enable braille reader to sense 100 characteres simultaneously. It can display additional 20 characters compared to market high-end 80 cells display. But, its length, 305mm, is shorter than that of 40 cells braille display.

Refresh time of the display is set to 5 sec or less. Dimension is 305*128*45mm, weight is 1 kg.

  Total pixel count of TACTISPLAY Table changed from 15,000 to 12,000 for portability. Because we designed TACTISPLAY Table to meet 25 line of 40 cells requirement supposing two pixels space for vertical cell separatioon, the display originally had 15,000 pixels arranged in 120 x 125. But, as most braille books adopted one pixel separation and customers requires smaller form factor, we decided to supply TACTISPLAY Table that meets such requirements. Total pixel count is reduced to 12,000 pixels configured in 120 x 100. Still it has 1,000 braille cell counts. There is no difference in text display capability. Display dimension will be 413*324*45mm rather than original dimension of 413*386*45mm.
