With Immersion's TouchSense technology, device manufacturers can appeal to users' sense of touch by incorporating high-quality tactile effects and feedback in user interfaces and applications to simulate the connected experiences of the real world.
Immersion launched TouchSense Premium and TouchSense Lite to address the various business goals and production constraints of device manufacturers, making haptics more accessible and affordable to implement in a wide range of devices. While OEMs designing high-end mobile handsets require high-fidelity effects, many are also looking for a more affordable solution to enable high-quality haptic effects for their lower-end devices.
"Our TouchSense technology brings the finest touch effects to mobile
devices, and we are pleased to work with Onkyo to further enhance the
user experience of its smartphones," said
"We have a longstanding reputation for high-quality consumer
electronics. Building on that, we released our first smartphone in
TouchSense Premium Solution Offers Highest Quality Haptics
Immersion's best-in-class TouchSense Premium solution offers the highest quality haptics available for OEMs designing high-end mobile handsets requiring high-fidelity effects. TouchSense Premium technology supports Pressure Haptics, an emerging feature in many premium handsets. Onkyo will work with Immersion to achieve optimized haptic experiences through effect customization and UI analysis, hardware tuning and software integration services.
TouchSense Lite Solution Enables Standard Quality Haptics
TouchSense Lite is a turn-key, cost-efficient solution enabling standard quality haptics leveraging a pre-designed library of tactile effects. This offering is easier to integrate as it is implemented at a higher level of the software stack and packages predefined built-in effect sets tuned for a range of common hardware configurations in the mobile market. Integration guidelines and haptic design best practices are also provided in the product package to help OEMs facilitate implementation.
