Hi,

I bought a Dell SX2210T touchscreen for use with my MacBook Pro, hoping I'd be able to find drivers for it. OS X 10.6 has API for tablets and multi-touch, so, I'm hoping to use this monitor for dev work until Apple releases their tablet and touchscreen iMacs.

I haven't been able to find drivers for the touch screen at all -- no multi-touch, not even drivers to emulate mouse clicks.

Touch-base is working on updating their Mac drivers to a new version that will support multi-touch with the touch screen in the SX2210T, but they won't be released for "several weeks". I'm hoping to find an interim solution.

Driver info for the touch screen:

Touchscreen:

Product ID: 0x0064
Vendor ID: 0x1926
Version: 0.01
Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec
Manufacturer: NextWindow
Location ID: 0x24121000
Current Available (mA): 500
Current Required (mA): 100


I've contacted the manufacturer, NextWindow, but haven't received a response.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Brad

Hi Brad,
I had a similar question that you had.
I was searching for a mac driver for the hp L2105tm multi-touch monitor to dual monitor with my iMac. I put in a lot of time researching and came up empty handed. I think you just have to wait for touch base to release the new driver.:(

How do you guys like the Dell/HP (in terms of hardware) assuming you haven't used the multi-touch on the OS at all?

We are considering getting a few of these - Win7 supports them out of the box, since we don't use Windows, we may experiment with building some full-screen AIR apps.

The hp is a very nice monitor for the price. I have used both the dell and the hp, and the dell probably has a nicer design and construction. I personally purchased the hp because it was very inexpensive, and it was for my triple monitor setup anyway. I would imagine either the dell or the hp would work very well with windows 7.
Good luck!

I am interested in this too.

Has anyone had luck finding drivers for OSX to be used with one of these monitors? I would like to get a multitouch monitor to accompany my MBP.

I am wondering if Apple is going to be incorporating multitouch into all of their monitors soon, and that is why they have not updated them in so long. That would be epic. Expensive, but epic.

Logic MONSTER?

Has anyone tried using this with Logic 9?

If the Touch-Base driver/ST2220T combo works, then one could buy two of them and use them as a touch screen mixer in Logic. Even with the $220 price tag for the software and $300/ea for the monitors, that solution would be far superior to any DAW control surface (Euphonix, Mackie, Behringer, etc.):

  • No stepper motor sounds inherent to motorized faders
  • Access to every mixer parameter directly--no assigning "v-pots" or faders
  • No wear and tear on faders and pots
  • WAY, WAY cheaper.

I could see having two conventional monitors at eye level for plug-ins and the timeline window, etc., and two on the desk at a low angle as a 48+ channel touch screen mixer. Compare that in price to a Mackie MCU ($999) + 5 extenders ($699/ea = $4500 total). With more features, and completely silent operation.
