About us

Success is measured by how many lives you touch. We’re dedicated to helping you with cutting-edge innovations.

Our company was founded in 2009 to bring cutting-edge touch technology to live performers. Today, we’re a tight-knit team of engineers, music producers, and DJs dedicated to refining the intersection of hardware and software.

Our History

2009

2009

We set out to develop the world’s first completely see through multi touch controller for DJs and live performers, creating the DVS (Dual View System) and our Emulator Pro software. The first of its kind, this software allowed crowds to see exactly what the performer was doing, 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”.

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 touch screen system in 60 seconds or less. The positive response to the Elite led to expand its size, developing what is now the world’s fastest large format PCAP touch screen.

2015

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 studio musicians, lighting consoles and the like.

2016

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 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.

2017

2017

Heavily focused on the support and development of existing products, our team developed a need for a tool that offered greater efficiency in their editing processes with various software. All potential solutions were far too expensive and bulky to meet their needs, so came the birth of the Kontrol Master. A hover dynamics based midi controller that allows you to undeniable precision and speed up workflow in your favorite DAW, Soft Synths, Broadcasting or Graphic Design software. Simply hover, control and create.

What’s next?

With exciting new products in development, we’re continuing our commitment to new technology, new markets, and new touch innovations. In this age of virtual reality, augmented reality and active wearables, multi touch remains the king for the next generation and is becoming a larger part of everyday life. We also see opportunity for products like digital signage, gaming and more.
