Success is measured by how many lives you touch. We’re dedicated to helping you with cutting-edge innovations.
Touch Innovations was acquired by nonprofit group UniversalFundraising.org in 2019. We’ve been newly revived with goals for creating new and exciting transparent display products and inviting major artists to take part in the bleeding edge of innovation.

Since 2009, we’ve offered groundbreaking multi-touch screen products used by brands like Disney, Blizzard, Microsoft, and Celebrity Cruises, along with top music producers like Steve Aoki and Glitch Mob. As a tight-knit team of artists and engineers, we are continuously innovating at the intersection of hardware and software, with a focus on jaw-dropping multi-touch screen transparent displays.
We’ve been told our multi-touch screens are “like something straight out of Minority Report”—and it’s true that our hardware and software provide an out of this world experience. Even better, they keep audiences engaged with vibrant content and cool new technology, whether you’re at a trade show, a sold-out concert venue, a corporate event, or anywhere else you need to make an amazing impression.
We set out to develop the world’s first completely transparent multi-touch DJ console for DJs and live performers, and we started by creating our DVS (Dual View System) and Emulator Pro software. The first of its kind, this software allows crowds to see exactly what the performer is doing on their turntable or screen, providing a completely new live visual experience. DVS won DJ Magazine’s “Most Innovative Product” award in 2010, and was called “The World’s Most Advanced DJ System.” Minority Report screens had entered the real world.
Continuing our love of live touch technology, we released the KS1974, a small-format PCAP touch monitor that could fit on a table on stage, or inside the studio.
As the DVS, Emulator, and KS1974 continued to take off, we introduced our new Elite hardware line. The Elite took off where the DVS began, featuring a fully integrated road case that folded out into a PCAP all-in-one touchscreen system in 60 seconds or less. The positive response to the Elite led to our decision to expand its size, developing a large touch screen system that is now the world’s largest format PCAP touchscreen.
We announced the release of the KS32, a larger version of the KS1974 with a 32-inch, 10-point PCAP monitor. Featuring an angled base for optimal use, the KS32 is ideal for the likes of studio musicians and lighting consoles.
As a statement of our commitment to the bridge between hardware and software, we changed our name from SmithsonMartin to Touch Innovations. We also launched Emulator 2, a complete rebuild of our patented Emulator Pro software, allowing multi-touch screen functionality for TUIO supported touch monitors. Finally, we expanded our Elite line with two new models, the Elite Lite and Elite IR, giving users even more options for creating the ultimate visual WOW factor.
Heavily focused on the support and development of existing products, our team discovered that we now needed a tool that offered greater efficiency in the editing processes with various software. All potential solutions were far too expensive and bulky to meet our needs, so we took matters into our own hands and developed the Kontrol Master. A hover-dynamics-based midi controller that allows for undeniable precision and speeds up workflows in your favorite DAW, Soft Synths, broadcasting, or graphic design software. Simply hover, control, and create.
With exciting new products in development, we’re continuing our commitment to cool new technology, new markets, and new touch innovations. In this age of virtual reality, augmented reality, and active wearables, multi-touch interfaces will be the king for the next generation. They are already becoming a larger part of everyday life. We also see opportunity for products like digital signage, gaming, and more. Keep up with our blog to stay up-to-date on new innovations!
