Meridian Sooloos Touch:PC Application

Meridian are imminently launching an exciting new Sooloos Control interface designed to run on HD resolution touchscreen PCs.
Following in the footsteps of the Control:One, C10 and C15 this new interface offers the following enhancements:

More Albums on Display - Each screen will show 24 Album's Cover Art.

Gesture Control - Finger Flick Browsing

Keyboard Editing - For making easier metadata changes.

The Touch:PC will continue to provide the handy CD importing feature found on the Control Products by using an internal or USB attached CD Rom drive.

It has minimal processor and RAM requirements, so should work on most Windows PCs running Windows 7 or later which have a resolution of 1920*1080 and will also run on most Microsoft Surface devices.

Unlike Control:15, Touch:PC isn't a complete Sooloos system, so you will still require a Sooloos Core, such as an MD600 or the new QNAP plugin, and a Sooloos Playback device like an MS200 or 818v3 to complete the system.

Cheers, Rick.

Resolution on older PC's tends to be 1280 x 720 i.e. less than 1920 x 1080, so this means Touch:PC will only run on full HD resolution PC's.

Cheers

I picked up a recent 9" tablet with 1920x1200 resolution, excellent for eyestrain with scaling turned off.

My main desktop workstation has a 2740x1440 display.

Touch:PC does look nice in a window though - hopefully this will be an option for the released version.

WUXGA I think that's called? My laptop runs at that resolution so I'll test and report back.

Looks great on my HP laptop. Much better than using the iPad app.

You didn't mention a price. Do we assume it is free, like the QNAP plugin?

I don't believe there will be a charge from Meridian for the Touch:PC application.

I'm not sure if it will be available direct for you to download from their website or only through a Meridian dealer, who would likely charge for any time spent installing the application to your PC.

The original announcement stated it was free:

For the user who appreciates the benefit of a large-scale touch screen, this free software can be installed in any touch PC running Windows 7 or 8 that has a 1920x1080 display.

It will be part of a Sooloos update 2.473 which puts a link in Control:PC for the app. And it will be free.

Possibly dumb question...

Will this application run on a non-touchscreen PC of appropriate specification driven by a mouse?


Various DSP speakers and Meridian processors
