Filed under: Uncategorized |

Symbios Logic, which established a strong presence in Colorado Springs in 1995, has entered into a venture with Scriptel Holding Co. to enhance the company’s support for personal data conferencing. The capabilities can now be integrated into popular Internet browsers, which include Netscape Navigator 3.0’s Cool Talk and Internet’s Explorer’s NetMeeting.

The new product, named the Symbios Logic WriteTouch, is being introduced this month in Las Vegas at the Fall COMDEX, a high-tech international conference and trade show.

The new product was jointly developed by the two companies. The product features a cordless pen and finger touch input subsystem, which will enable computer and electronic presentation equipment manufacturers to provide personal data conferencing capabilities with fully integrated pen input.

In lay script, the product will allow users to write, edit, and sign documents as if they were in the same room, even though they may be viewing a specific document from several thousand miles away.

According to Symbios Logic, the product is special in may ways, particularly because it will allow a user to complete pen-based on-line conferencing and web navigation with the touch of a hand rather than a mouse.

Scrpitel, based in Columbus, Ohio, develops, manufactures, and markets high-performance digital pen systems that are sold to major computer manufacturers. The company is also in the process of developing wireless products that will be compatible with mobile systems.
