Connecting to your 2Touch IWB:
All 2Touch Interactive Whiteboards are plug-and-play, meaning that any Windows or MacOS computer should be able to simply connect to them via the USB cable, and be able to control the computer from the IWB surface. This is the most basic level of connection, in which the IWB is treated by the computer as a mouse, using the HID drivers native to Windows and MacOS.
If you find that you cannot connect to a 2Touch IWB, check your USB connections first. In nearly all cases, the fault will lie with a cable, a connection or a USB device such as a hub or “smart” USB extension cable which is stopping the computer from correctly connecting to the IWB. If the IWB is connected directly to the computer (ie not through any extension cables or components such as hubs or panels) and still cannot be detected by the computer, please contact email@example.com for help.
Multi-touch support for your 2Touch IWB:
2Touch IWB’s from model 2150 onwards (ie later than 2009) are multi-touch capable on Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10. In the case of the 2Touch model 2150, the NextWindow multi touch device driver must be installed on the computer in order for multi-touch functionality to be supported by the IWB. Furthermore, the IWB must be configured for multi touch (this is the default setting). Multi touch configuration on the IWB is incompatible with support for the MacOS platform, so if your IWB is to be used with both Windows and Mac OS platforms then multi-touch will be disabled.
Calibrating your 2Touch IWB:
On connecting the IWB, you will need to occasionally calibrate it to the projected display. With model 2102 and 2150 IWB’s this is achieved by pressing the calibration button on the IWB: no additional software is needed. In the case of the later model 106, a calibration utility must be installed on the computer and launched from the Windows Taskbar.
