measures a massive 132 inches across its diagonal, and is capable of
supporting up to 32 touch points simultaneously. The new ultrahigh

immersive interactive experience, allowing users to use videos together
with local and online applications in addition to live web feeds.

high. The VantagePoint is connected to a high performance HP Z800
