    Any tripod mounted capable camera should work fine. Even a cheap auto camera (like this one, HD for $50) should work fine with consistent indirect lighting, with "ebay kits" like this. I'd say keep the camera, buy the lightbox first and see the results.
    Thanks for the tips.

    I have photo lights on tri-pods and I did have tents. I sold them to a local photographer. They were a PITA to use for "live" displays.

    That "mat" is one of my 10ft. long workbenches covered in anti static carpet. They aren't going anywhere.

    I do have a tri-pod for my digital camera, and I often use it for photos. However, i just did the videos shown holding the cam since I was alone.

    I will try it w/the lights and use a white drop cloth.

    You could probably swing by Walmart and pick up a cheap Kodak or any other brand camcorder for well under $100, and get some pretty decent video quality. I have a Kodak Zi8 that I got for right around $100 a year or so ago that has excellent quality.

    Yeah, small tents are a pain, but a necessity to ease the burden on the camera. Consistent indirect lighting is the name of the game for good videos. The more shades, and contrast, the more the camera will struggle to represent accurate colors, specially Lcd demos. However, big confortable tents to work with require a lot of light, and they are HOT.

    I have a question for you. Have you tried hooking up two, three multitouch displays to windows 7? I've heard a lot of issues with that. It looks like win 7 requires multitouch to be the main display, but I havent find yet anybody who uses more than one touch screen with win 7 drivers. I also winder if 3rd party drivers like touch kit that we use on our xenarcs and lillis would live together with win7 drivers on the same machine.

    I plan to use win7 main screen with multitouch, and one or two regular resistive touch in The back rows. I think this won't work though...if you have time can you try two multitouch or more on the same machine, and a combo of one multitouch+regular resistive touch?

    Thanks!

    Their performance is sort of OK under bright sunlight and in fact much better than the Lilliputs by a good margin. The resistive TS clouds a bit but the TS is fortunately not very reflective.

    I purchased it from a different seller around 6 months back but never got around installing them due to lack of enclosures.

    IMHO the best bet would be the non-TS version and you can add a Capacitive Touch Panel. I've purchased the 3M Touch panel towards this but again never installed it due to lack of enclosure.
    Thanks, looks like they're great! Do you think they would fit on the lillie enclosure we talked about above? I think the lack of enclosures will push me to crap lilies, unless I figure out another way to mount them on the headrest.

    Have you talked to HiJackZX1? He runs a ton of screens, so if anyone might have more than one touchscreen running, my money would be on him.

    it is the software, and driver package that the touch overlay uses that determine this, not the actual touch screen overlay so much.

    the easy way to get around this is to use the same-brand equipment. but if not, then you need to determine how everything talks to each other, or which driver it uses

    i have personally tried a lilliput 629gl + a proximus 7" touch screen. because these use very similar drivers, i am able to use the driver package from the liliput cd to make both screens work. the biggest problem is the mouse switching between the screens, but once the screens are correctly calibrated, they work great.

    Confirmed. See pg. 8 of this thread.

    well, getting back to ripplinghurst's question, i imagine you should be able to run them simultaneously-- i can have 3 usb mice plugged in, and all of them will work. i kind of think that the touch screens would do the same--at the worst.

    in the touchscreen software provided with the lilliputs, there is a option for multiple monitors. through this, each touch screen shows up independently. even in the touchkit control panel. so i am still able to configure the screens separately.

    The problem is that mouse inputs are relative pos and touch are absolute. That's why multiple touch on win 7 Must be the main display, which is kind of a bummer, since I would like to add a smaller 10-15" multiple touch display to my main pc. Multiple Resistive touch is not a problem with the soft that comes with xenarcs, but they don't support multiple touch. Two or more multi touch seems impossible, one multi and others resistive, I'm hopeful it will work.

    I'm not optimist, will see.
