CHENGDU, China, Feb. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GeneralTouch Technology CO.,

its innovative and proprietary touch technology - Projected Infrared Touch

Windows 8 Touch LOGO certified.

As the newest operating system of Microsoft, Windows 8 was specially created
to incorporate multi-touch as a standard feature in the next generation of PC

Microsoft's strict test parameters. Hence, GeneralTouch is profoundly

original design manufacturers (ODMs) to unreservedly develop PIT products that
run on Windows 8 where touch is intrinsic. Both the monitor, All-in-One PC
ODM/OEMs and consumers will greatly profit from the benefits of PIT
technology, with its excellent multi-touch performance, elegant aesthetics,
near zero bezel, high level of customization, superb cost-effectiveness &
reliability; thus, breaking the monopoly of Projected Capacitive (PCAP) touch
technology in consumer electronics applications.

Having earned the Windows 8 LOGO certification, GeneralTouch will double its
efforts in speeding up PIT products engineering, mass production schedule and
marketing campaign, to usher PIT touch products into the mass market in the
near future, as previously envisaged. In particular, GeneralTouch will spare
